IF YOU OR SOMEONE in your household can’t make it through the night without sawing a few logs, you might be a good candidate for NightLase Therapy. Snoring isn’t just disruptive to other people’s sleep; it can seriously affect the snorer’s quality of sleep too.
What’s the Problem With Snoring?
Just about everyone will snore every once in a while, but a serious snoring habit can be a real problem. It happens when air flows past the relaxed tissues of the throat during sleep, causing them to vibrate loudly with every breath. The following symptoms may be associated with frequent snoring:
- Excessive sleepiness during the day
- Difficulty concentrating
- Morning headaches
- Sore throat in the morning
- Restless sleep
- High blood pressure
- Chest pain during the night
- Snoring loud enough to disrupt a partner’s sleep
- Interrupted breathing during sleep
- Gasping or choking during the night
- In children, behavior issues, poor attention span, or poor performance in school
What Is NightLase Therapy?
NightLase therapy is a cutting-edge, patient-friendly laser treatment performed to reduce (and sometimes eliminate) the effects of snoring. The NightLase procedure is performed using Fotona’s FDA-approved Lightwalker laser. The effect of the laser energy is the tightening of the loose mucosa tissue located in the posterior region of the mouth (roof and back of the throat).
How NightLase Therapy Helps With Snoring
By tightening the mucosa, there’s less vibration during inhalation and exhalation. Ultimately, NightLase provides a safe, non-invasive means to open the airway, reduce snoring, and improve your sleep. The procedure is comfortable and results can sometimes be instant.
What to Expect at a NightLase Therapy Appointment
NightLase therapy involves a series of three to four separate treatment sessions spaced out over the course of two months. When performed by a trained and qualified professional, like Dr. Burman, NightLase therapy provides results that can last up to a year. If you start snoring again after a period of months, Dr. Burman can repeat the procedure to prolong your results.
Minimal Side Effects and a Quick Recovery
Some patients may experience an itchy or sore throat after their first treatment, but it usually goes away on its own within a day or two. Regarding recovery, this treatment doesn’t have any! You’ll be able to return to your normal daily routine immediately after leaving our practice. It won’t even affect what you can eat for dinner.
