What is NightLase® Snoring and Apnea Treatment?
NightLase® Treatment is a patented, fast, non-invasive and friendly way of increasing the quality of a patient's sleep. NightLase® lessens the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring through the use of gentle, superficial laser light. No anesthesia is used in this treatment.
How does NightLase® Treatment work?
During NightLase® treatment laser light heats the tissue, causing tightening of the tissue which leads to an attenuation of the sound of the patients snoring and a lessening of the effects of sleep apnea.
The procedure is performed in two simple steps:
Step 1: PRECONDITIONING The laser light preheats the tissue.
Step 2: TISSUE STRENGTHENING Laser light strengthens the tissue.
A full course of NightLase® treatment is comprised of three separate treatment sessions over a six week period. The final result of the treatment has been shown to last up to a year. When the patients or their loved ones notice the effects erroding, another round of treatment can be performed.
