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.

How NightLase Works

The heat from the laser prompts the contraction of the collagen in the oral mucosa tissue (throat tissues), which helps  open up the airway at the back of the throat. This also tightens the throat muscles, so in cases where snoring is caused by a floppy soft palate, the treatment will reduce the vibration of the palate, and therefore minimize snoring.

Most patients notice an immediate reduction in snoring after the first treatment, and consequent improvement in their sleep patterns.
