Do you struggle with sleep apnea or other sleep disorders? If so, you may wish to consider Fotona’s NightLase therapy as a way to help you sleep. This safe, effective laser treatment is known for reducing the symptoms of sleep apnea and decreasing the magnitude of snoring through a simple, gentle laser treatment.
What is Fotona NightLase Therapy?
The Fotona NightLase is a patient-friendly laser treatment designed to increase the quality of sleep for those who suffer from sleep apnea or other sleep disorders. The gentle laser treatment works on the mucosa tissue to open the airway and reduce snoring and sleep apnea symptoms.
The system has been cleared by the FDA, and it has been shown to be highly effective as a non-invasive way to lessen the effects of snoring.
How Does the Fotona NightLase Work?
Typically, a full course of NightLase involves three separate treatment sessions over a two month period. You will not have to wear a device during sleep, and there is no chemical treatment involved. It is comfortable, safe, and easy.
Fotona’s patented laser optimizes the length of laser pulses and allows the safe penetration of heat into oral tissue. The laser tightens the tissue on your soft palate, opening the airways so you can breathe more freely while sleeping. While it’s gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside your mouth, it’s also strong enough to provide rapid healing.
Is NightLase Therapy Painful?
This gentle laser treatment is not considered painful. You will most likely just experience a mild warm sensation during the procedure.
How Long is the NightLase Recovery Period?
Unlike having surgery, there is no downtime with NightLase therapy. You can walk into the office, get a treatment, walk out and return to your normal routine right away.
What Are the Benefits of NightLase Laser Sleep Apnea Therapy?
The laser therapy’s main benefit is to increase the quality of your sleep. By reducing the effects and decreasing the amplitude of snoring through its gentle laser treatments, you’ll snore less and enjoy longer, more restful sleep.
How Long Do the Results From NightLase Last?
The final results of the Fotona NightLase treatment can provide you with restful sleep, free from snoring and sleep apnea symptoms, for up to a year, and the treatment can be repeated if necessary.
How Much Does NightLase Treatment Cost?
The cost of your treatment will depend on several factors, such as how many sessions you need. Luckily, financing options are available at Julian Center if you need them.
What Are the Health Risks of Sleep Apnea?
Untreated sleep apnea can really take a toll on your body. Some of the health risks include:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Brain damage
- Early mortality
Luckily, NightLase and other dental and holistic treatments can reduce these health risks by helping you get the restorative sleep you need.
