NightLase Laser is a safe and effective laser method for treating and eliminating snoring.

Approximately 30% of people have snoring problems. Snoring often deprives the person of quality sleep, and even more often disturbs the sleep of their sleeping partner.

Lack of quality sleep leads to numerous health problems, such as fatigue, irritability, exhaustion, and impaired concentration and memory.

Laser treatment for snoring

NightLase is an effective and painless laser method for eliminating snoring, as confirmed by many patients who have stopped snoring with the help of this method.

Although there are many surgical and non-surgical methods for eliminating snoring, none have proven to be as effective and successful as the NightLase method. In addition to the invasiveness of the intervention, surgical methods are also associated with high risk and relatively low success in eliminating snoring.

The only truly effective method for treating snoring so far which we also offer in our clinic, is therapy with Fotona laser NightLase. Proven to reduce snoring and sleep apnea. It is based on the use of an erbium laser, which stimulates the formation of new collagen in the soft tissues, resulting in tightening of the soft palate and surrounding tissues. The result is an elevation of the soft palate and a tightening of the oropharynx, making the airway more open.

What is snoring?

Snoring is a sound vibration resulting from a narrowing or blockage in one or more places in the oral, nasal or pharyngeal cavity. Obstruction or blockage can occur in several sections. The most common places are:

- Nose and nasal part of the pharynx
- Back part of the oral cavity and oral part of the pharynx
- Lower part of the pharynx with the root of the tongue
- Throat with lid

Snoring occurs when airflow causes tissue in the nose and throat area to vibrate. This happens because of a narrow pharyngeal (throat) airway in the throat, mouth or nose. To treat sleep apnea and snoring, we use Fotona's NightLase therapy, a non-invasive laser method that improves the quality of sleep. b>. Below you can see a presentation video of the course of therapy.

What is sleep apnea?

With snoring there may also be respiratory arrest, whereby the patient stops breathing for a few seconds to a minute. This condition is called sleep apnea. Untreated sleep apnea causes severe fatigue and increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases such as heart attack and stroke. That is why it is very important to detect sleep apnea in time and start treatment.

Why is sleep important?

Sleep is a basic human need. Ordered and quality sleep improves mood, affects psychomotor skills and strengthens the immune response.

Sleep is related to many physiological, behavioral and cognitive systems. It affects good memory, immune response, regulates and promotes the correct functioning of hormones, contributes to cardiovascular regulation, body temperature and many other important body functions. Therefore, the lack and poor quality of sleep can lead to many health problems.

One of the common causes of poor sleep is snoring, which fortunately can be treated. Snoring often negatively affects your and your partner's sleeping habits. Lack of sleep due to snoring causes fatigue, irritability and difficulty concentrating. Untreated sleep apnea can lead to more serious health problems such as irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia), heart disease, high blood pressure and even stroke. Therefore, it is very important to decide on treatment in time.

What are the consequences of snoring?

People who snore can be exposed to many risks, such as:

  • Lack of sleep
  • Headache
  • Irritability
  • Reduced concentration
  • Stroke
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Decreased sexual libido
  • Heart disease, irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia), heart attack, congestive heart failure
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Depression

Who is a good candidate for laser snoring treatment?

NightLase laser therapy is a completely safe method suitable for anyone with snoring problems. The best results were achieved in patients who snore due to loose tissue of the soft palate.

The suitability of the patient for this type of treatment and the number of necessary therapies is assessed by the doctor during the consultation. Generally, three to five treatments are required, spaced seven to ten days apart. Individual therapy lasts from 15 to 30 minutes.

How does Nighlase therapy work?

Laser treatment using the NightLase method is painless, without cutting and penetrating the tissues of the soft palate. The laser works on the tissues of the soft palate, causing them to shrink, which increases the tension in the muscles and tissues. This causes the soft palate to move away from the back wall of the pharynx, which reduces vibrations during breathing. As a result, the patency of the nose improves.

Immediately after the procedure, the patient performs all functions normally and does not need rest.

Usually three to five therapies are needed which are carried out at intervals of seven to ten days. The duration of each treatment is approximately 30 minutes. After finishing the treatment, we recommend a maintenance recovery treatment once a year.

How is recovery going?

Laser treatment of snoring is a non-surgical, non-invasive and painless procedure that does not require special recovery. You can go home immediately after the therapy and continue with your normal daily routine.

Some patients may experience a slight scratchy feeling in the throat for a few days after the first therapy, similar to the feeling after drinking too hot liquid. This feeling is the result of heating and tightening of the structures at the site of the laser action. There is no such discomfort with further therapies.

What is the success of the treatment

We are very satisfied with the results at our clinic. There are extremely rare cases where the condition would not improve after therapy.
According to the previous research, the success rate of treatment after five therapies is 90%; and more than 80% of patients report easier breathing.
