Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.
During NightLase® treatment laser light heats the tissue, causing tightening of the tissue which leads to an attenuation of the sound of the patient's snoring and a lessening of the effects of sleep apnea.
A wonderful adventure for all ages.
The procedure is performed in two simple steps:
Step 1: PRECONDITIONING The laser light preheats the tissue.
Step 2: TISSUE STRENGTHENING Laser light strengthens the tissue.
A full course of NightLase® treatment consists 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. When the patients or their loved ones notice the effects eroding, another round of treatment can be performed.
