Fotona Nightlase Snoring Treatment – Is snoring keeping you up at night?

Snoring Fotona

How it works?

Snoring occurs when turbulent airflow causes tissues of the nose and throat (the soft palate) to vibrate. Fotona Nightlase Snoring Treatment is a gentle laser treatment that heats the tissue at the back of the throat to allow air to flow more freely. The laser has a gentle tightening effect by causing the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.  This effectively reduces the amplitude of snoring and improve quality of sleep.

Who is it suitable for?

There are no contra-indications to treatment although an initial consultation will be undertaken by the doctors and any individual concerns can be addressed.

Why is It important?

Annoying your partner is not the only problem with snoring and sleep apnoea. When you do not get quality sleep, you are likely to experience chronic daytime sleepiness, morning headache, fatigue, irritability and impaired concentration.

What does the treatment involve?

3 to 4 separate treatment sessions over a 6-week period. Each session lasts approximately 20 or 30 minutes. A laser beam is directed at the soft palate which smooth’s and tightens the tissue. This is completely pain free and there is no downtime!

Are there any side effects?

As the Nightlase snoring solution is non-invasive, it is highly unlikely you will experience any side effects. After your 20-minute treatment, you can walk out of our clinic doors and get back to your busy day!

How long does it last?

This treatment helps to keep your airways clear for up to 12 months. After this period, you can book a top up treatment to ensure you can continue to get a better night’s sleep.
