Sleep Apnea & Snoring Treatment

IN

Milton & The Greater Toronto Area

The NightLase® therapy from Fotona uses a non-invasive laser to improve the patient’s sleep. A gentle, laser-induced tightening effect brought on by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue is how NightLase® lessens the consequences of sleep apnea and minimises the amplitude of snoring. As a result, the oral mucosa tissue contracts, allowing for reduced airflow obstruction. According to recent studies, NightLase® dramatically lowers the consequences of sleep apnea and significantly reduces snoring.

Laser Therapy for Sleep Apnea & Snoring Treatment

NightLase® is one of the medical laser therapies from Fotona. NightLase® is unique to other types of laser therapy for snoring in that it treats the mucosa tissue in the mouth and throat. NightLase® is intended to alleviate snoring and sleep apnea, by gently heating the targeted oral tissue with a laser. The gentle heating from the laser encourages the creation of collagen and tightens the tissue structure, which reduces snoring.

Unlike other laser treatments, non-ablative lasers are used during the treatment. Which means that no tissue is removed or vaporised. Instead, the tissue absorbs the laser energy and heats up as a result. The body’s natural collagen-producing process is stimulated by this controlled heating, which results in tissue tightening and decreased laxity in the treated area.

How Many Treatment Sessions are Needed?

To effectively treat snoring or sleep apnea, NightLase® laser treatments are done over the course of several sessions separated by a few weeks. Each session lasts between 20 and 30 minutes. Depending on the individual’s unique health and anatomy, the laser is applied to specific locations in the oral cavity and neck, such as the soft palate, uvula, or back of the tongue.

In order to lessen snoring and alleviate the signs of mild to moderate sleep apnea, NightLase® works to increase the stiffness and stability of the tissue in the treated area. Given that there is no surgery or prolonged recovery time, it is regarded as a gentle, non-invasive, and relatively painless procedure.

What is the expected recovery time for Nightlase® Sessions?

After receiving a NightLase® treatment, there is little recovery time required. Most patients resume their regular activities right away after receiving NightLase® treatment. This is because the laser used during Nightlase® is a non-invasive process that doesn’t require surgery or cause major tissue damage. No downtime is usually required.

Patients may notice a few modest, transient adverse effects after each snoring treatment session, such as mild pain, a feeling of heat or warmth in the treated area, or a slight sore throat. These side effects typically last from a few hours up to a few days.

It’s important to keep in mind that the quantity of NightLase® sessions needed will be different depending on the person and how severe their snoring or sleep apnea is. Most of the time, a series of several sessions, separated by a few weeks, is needed. Based on your unique needs,Dr. Leonora Ogbeide will choose the ideal number of sessions for you.

Even though the recuperation period is brief, it’s crucial to abide by any post-treatment recommendations that Dr. Ogbeide gives you. To encourage recovery and enhance the effectiveness of the treatment, this can entail refraining from particular foods or activities for a short while after the surgery. A recovery plan will be put together and explained to you during a consultation prior to treatment.
