NightLase® Treatment is a patented,fast, non-invasive and friendly way of increasing the quality of a patient's sleep.
NightLase® lessens the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring through the use of gentle, superficial Er:YAG laser light. No anesthesia is used in this treatment.
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. 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 is comprised of at least three separate treatment sessions over a time period determined by Dr. Nylaan. The final result of the treatment has been shown to last up to a year. Follow up treatment can be performed as needed.
Fotona systems, like the LightWalker enable a strong yet gentle Er:YAG modality which optimizes the length of every pulse. This mode allows for the superficial penetration of heat into tissue, without damage or adverse effects. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating.
NightLase® Treatment is simple and virtually painless. It has an extremely high success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Research has shown that NightLase® reduces and attenuates snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea.
NightLase® requires no device to be worn during sleep, involves no chemical treatment, and no anesthesia. It is a gentle
and easy way for the patient and their loved ones to regain a good night's rest. Getting Started with NightLase®
