Fotona NightLase

Fotona NightLase Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.

NightLase uses a powerful long pulsed Er: YAG laser to treat snoring. The heat from the laser prompts the contraction of the collagen in the oral mucosa tissue, and also strengthens the tissue. The tightening of the throat tissues helps to open up the airway at the back of the throat.

The laser energy is also able to shrink the soft palate. In cases where snoring is the result of a floppy soft palate, the treatment will reduce the vibration of the palate, and therefore minimize snoring.

NightLase is a safe, patient-friendly solution for snoring. Most patients that have undergone the procedure notice an immediate reduction in snoring, and consequent improvement in their sleep patterns.
