NightLase Shrinks Tissues to Address Snoring
Sleep is an important part of our natural cycle and helps to get us through the day alert and energized. Unfortunately for some of us, sleep can be hard to come by and this can contribute to a lack of energy throughout the day and for many, a tired and unapproachable attitude. A lack of sleep can also lead to a number of adverse health conditions that you will want to avoid.
A lot of people snore while they sleep. The sounds made from snoring is the result of vibrations caused by air flow that travels through relaxed tissues in your throat. It can range from very soft snoring sounds to very loud and obnoxious. It can be a very problematic issue that affects your sleep and the sleep of those around you.
Snoring may lead to drowsiness during the day, along with irritability, and loss of focus. A large majority of the people who snore loudly also suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which is the repeated interrupting of breath while you sleep.
OSA leads to disrupted sleeping patterns and low oxygen levels, leading to hypertension, mood swings, and many other adverse health conditions. People who suffer from OSA can undergo NightLase for the solution to their problems.
What Is NightLase?
NightLase® by Fotona is a non-invasive laser treatment known to help in decreasing the occurrence of loud snoring, as well as the effects of sleep apnea. The NightLase therapy helps in tightening the muscles in the oral mucosa tissue with the help of a laser. It is a patient-friendly treatment that can help improve sleep quality in people who have undergone the treatment.
How NightLase Works
The NightLase treatment can utilize either one of Fotona’s dual-wavelength laser system– the LightWalker line, or the SP line. Both lines make use of the Er:YAG and Nd:YAG dental lasers. The Er:YAG laser helps in penetrating and heating the tissues gently, yet effectively, without causing any ablation.
The heating causes the contraction of the tissues, which helps in tightening the throat muscles, further preventing the vibrations that lead to snoring. This promotes the reduction of sound of the patient’s snores, as well as the effects of sleep apnea.
Why Choosing NightLase Is Beneficial
The NightLase treatment offers a vast number of advantages, apart from just reducing the snoring sounds generated during your sleep. The treatment is non-surgical, which means that there are no incisions and scars.
The treatment is painless, and does not require the use of anesthesia. It is also safe, and does not make the patient vulnerable to infections. Along with these benefits, it also has an edge over other treatments because it is fast.
Each treatment session lasts about 20 minutes. You will want to make sure you work with a sleep specialist to experience the best results possible.
The treatment does not have any downtime, which means that the patient can return to their normal routine immediately after. After the treatment is completed, patients are neither required to wear any device while they’re sleeping and won’t have to undergo any special therapy.
Patients may notice an improvement in sleep quality after the initial session with the chance to improve even further over the course of time.
