NightLase® for snoring and sleep apnoea

A unique and effective laser snoring treatment

Snoring and sleep apneoa are common causes of disrupted sleep amongst many people. NightLase® is a patented, simple and painless laser snoring treatment that lessens the effects of sleep apnoea 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.

How does it work?

Non-ablative lasers target the oral mucosa tissue and the contraction of collagen causes a tightening effect. This opens up the area for a more free flow of air through the passage, reducing sleep apnea for up to one year in most patients. The tightening effect also leads to an attenuation of the sound of the patients snoring.

A strong yet gentle Er:YAG laser with optimised pulse length is needed to perform this simple, two-step procedure.

Firstly the laser light preheats the tissue. Fotona’s proprietary Er:YAG modality allows for the superficial penetration of heat into the tissue without damage or adverse effects. It’s gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically effective heating.

In the second and last step, the laser light is used to strengthen the tissue.

A full course of NightLase® is comprised of three separate treatment sessions over a six week period. Results last up to one year in many patients. When they notice the effects diminishing, another round of treatment can be performed on the patient.

Our most advanced systems for snoring issues

We recommend the SP Dynamis as the most advanced system to carry out NightLase® on your patients. This system has a high-powered Er:YAG laser light and an Nd:YAG ready to use. To offer the patented NightLase® treatment to your patients, the PS03 handpiece is required.

Other Fotona laser systems that fix snoring issues are the XS Dynamis and Fotona SMOOTH® XS. Combined with the necessary handpiece, these systems can also be used to carry out NightLase® with the same great results.
