Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. Research has shown that NightLase® reduces and attenuates snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea and snoring.
A Patient Friendly Solution
Nightlase® Treatment is a patent-pending, fast, non-invasive and friendly way of increasing the quality of a patients sleep. Nightlase® lessens the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the severity of snoring through the use of gentle, Erbium:Yag laser energy. No anesthesia is used in this procedure. Nightlase® treatment causes a tightening of the tissue and leads to a reduction in the sound of the patients snoring and a lessening of the affects of sleep apnea.
A full course of NightLase® consists of three separate treatment sessions over a six week period. The final results of the treatment have been shown to last up to a year, when the therapy can be refreshed with a single visit.
Patients find NightLase® to be a highly comfortable and satisfying solution. NightLase® often requires no device to be worn during sleep and involves no chemical treatment. It’s a gentle and easy way for you or your partner to regain a good night’s rest.
