NightLase is a patent-pending, fast, non-invasive and friendly way of increasing the quality of a patient's sleep. NightLase lessens the effects of sleep apnea and decreases snoring through the use of gentle, superficial Er:YAG laser light. No anesthesia is used in this treatment.
During NightLase treatment laser light heats the tissue causing tightening of the tissue which leads to less obstruction and therefore less sound of snoring and a lessening of the effects of sleep apnea.
The procedure is performed in two simple steps:
The laser light preheats the tissue. 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 until a maintenance treatment is recommended. When the patients or their loved ones notice an increase in snoring, a maintenance or another round of treatments may be performed.
NightLase requires no device to be worn during sleep, involves no chemical treatment, and no anesthesia. It is a gentle and easy way for the patient and their loved ones to regain a good night's rest
