NightLase® Snoring Treatment
NightLase® Snoring Treatment?
Thanks to a procedure called NightLase® snoring treatment, you—and anyone who shares a room with you at night—can once again get a good night’s sleep. NightLase® is a non-invasive procedure using a laser to tighten the tissues at the back of the throat, effectively reducing—and possibly eliminating—snoring.
Why Do We
In short, sleep deprivation caused by snoring can be detrimental to your health and well-being in numerous ways. But why do we snore?
Snoring occurs when airflow through the mouth and/or nose is obstructed while you sleep. This happens for a few reasons, such as:
- Obstructed Nasal Passages
This can be caused by temporary conditions such as seasonal allergies, a cold, or a sinus infection. It can also be a more permanent condition if you have a deviated septum or nasal polyps.
- Poor Muscle Tone
Your throat and tongue muscles may become too relaxed while you sleep, causing them to collapse and fall back into your airways.
- Bulky Throat Tissue
This is common in people who are overweight. Just as you may have excess fat and tissue on the outside of your body, being overweight can cause excess tissue to form in your throat.
- Long Soft Palate and/or Uvula
The fleshy, flexible tissue at the back of your throat is called the soft palate, while the dangling soft tissue in the back of your throat is called the uvula. If either of these features is too long, it can cause the opening between the nose and the back of the throat to be too narrow.
It used to be that snoring was just something we had to put up with. That’s no longer the case thanks to NightLase® snoring treatment.

NightLase® Snoring Treatment
If, however, you're plagued by a more permanent cause of snoring—in particular, bulky tissue at the back of your throat—the non-invasive NightLase® snoring treatment can be your ticket to a full night of sound sleep.
NightLase® snoring treatment is performed using the Fotona SP Dynamis system, which uses a non-ablative (non-wounding) Er:YAG laser. The laser applies highly controlled, gentle light pulses to the back of the throat. The light pulses heat the tissue, which causes thermal contraction—a tightening of the tissue. The snoring treatment also stimulates collagen development, which increases the soft palate's elasticity.
The NightLase® snoring treatment only takes a few minutes, and is so gentle, there is no need for a local anesthetic, and no downtime after the procedure. You can return to your normal daily activities immediately following the treatment. Because it's non-invasive, there's no scarring, either.
If you're losing sleep because of snoring, you owe it to yourself to come in for a consultation to find out how NightLase® snoring treatment can change your life.
