Nightlase Snoring Treatment

The Treatment

Do you toss and turn while your partner sleeps peacefully snoring at night? Did you know that approximately 2 million Canadians have sleeping disorders, with the most common being insomnia and snoring. According to Statistics Canada, one in four women and one in three men have a snoring issue. Ivy Laser Clinic is just the right place to treat snoring. 

Being proactive about searching for solutions to your snoring issue should be a top priority. Our Fontana 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.

What causes snoring?

Many factors can contribute to snoring such as age, obesity, alcohol, smoking, medications, sinus and nasal issues, as well as sleeping posture, to name a few.

Snoring occurs when the air moving through your nose and mouth cannot freely move between these passages during sleep. Due to this narrowing within the airway, the tissues vibrate and create a sound. Depending how narrow the airways are is how loud the sound can be heard.

Sleep deprivation is one of the most consequential impacts of snoring, and may negatively affect the health and quality of life of the snorer, as well as their partner. Snorers can experience irritability, headaches, tiredness, and relationship challenges. Prioritizing your health by targeting your snoring issues can improve your cardiovascular health by reducing your risks of heart attack and strokes. In addition, can improve depression, fatigue, and impotence in men.

What is the method of treatment?

Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is a leading-edge procedure using a non-invasive laser to tighten the collagen in your oral mucosa tissue. By means of this gentle, laser-inducing tightening effect you simply reduce or eliminate the amplitude of snoring, diving into a deeper realm of sleep.

Who is a good candidate?

NightLase® requires no device to be worn during sleep and involves no chemical treatment. Patients who are interested in noninvasive, painless remedies for snoring are the appropriate candidates for this procedure. Come in for a free consultation to see if NightLase® can help you today!

How does it work? What is the recovery time?

Using the advanced laser energy, the laser heats up the soft palate and tongue tissue resulting in a tightening effect which keeps your airway open. NightLase® is recommended for approximately three short treatments spaced over a 6 week period.

Expect each treatment to take approximately 15-30 minutes and require no anaesthesia. It’s a gentle and easy way for your patients to regain a good night’s rest.There is no downtime, the procedure is very comfortable and you will be able to resume your daily activities immediately afterwards.

Results are significantly improved after the first session with 80% of patients reporting a reduction in snoring as well as waking from apneic episodes.

What is the cost of the procedure?

We offer a package of 3 sessions to be done 6 weeks apart.
