Nightlase – Fotona

Sleep apnea and snoring diminish the quality of your sleep. When left untreated, these issues can make way to other troublesome health concerns such as headaches, irritability, high blood pressure, and chronic fatigue. Generations Family Practice Wellness Center in Cary, NC is proud to offer Fotona’s NightLase laser treatment to address snoring and sleep apnea. Do you or your partner suffer from these sleeping problems? Our treatment can provide you with relief and peace of mind.

Enjoy Better Sleep With NightLase

Fotona’s NightLase is a safe, non-invasive laser treatment that can increase the quality of your sleep and minimize the symptoms of sleep apnea. Through the use of gentle laser light, the treatment tightens your tissues and opens your airway, thus lessening or eliminating snoring.

Because the treatment is gentle and non-invasive, no anesthesia is needed. Gentle laser energy is only used to stimulate collagen contraction in your upper airway tissues. After the treatment course, you can expect your airway to become more open and tighter, therefore reducing the frequency of snoring and sleep apnea.

Treat Sleep Apnea

Are you one of the millions of Americans suffering from sleep apnea? This condition causes you to stop breathing for a short period during your sleep. If you find yourself waking to a shallower sleep or waking entirely during the night, sleep apnea is likely preventing you from getting quality rest. In the long term, this problem can put you at risk for serious health concerns, such as heart problems, depression, stroke, and sexual dysfunction.

We can help you minimize the symptoms of sleep apnea with the help of our NightLase treatments. Laser treatment is one of the most effective, least invasive ways to address sleep apnea and improve your quality of life. You won’t need to worry about anesthesia, incisions, stitches, and a long recovery period.

Reduce Snoring

Individuals of any age and background can suffer from snoring. This sleep problem is very common and can be caused by many factors, but snoring is far from being natural. Snoring is an indication that your airways are blocked during sleep. When there is obstruction of airflow through the mouth and throat, you might not get sufficient oxygen while you rest.

Excess tissues in the throat and a narrow airway can both cause snoring. We can help you eliminate these problems by using laser light that heats your tissues and tightens them. After a series of treatments, you’ll have more open airways that allow for easier, unobstructed breathing that minimizes or eliminates snoring.

How Does the Treatment Work?

Our NightLase treatments put your comfort and safety first. During your treatment session, laser energy is directed to stimulate the inner tissues of your mouth. You can expect to feel a mild, warm, tingling sensation. The treatment gradually opens up the airway between your soft palate and your tongue.

Sleep apnea and snoring occur when your oral tissues overrelax during sleep and prevent proper, sufficient airflow. Therefore, NightLase treatments that tighten your tissues and open your airways can successfully help you achieve better, quality sleep.

Number of Required Sessions

To achieve the best results, your soft tissues must be exposed to laser energy in a series of treatments. With every treatment session, tissues will regenerate and tighten up. The actual number of sessions you’ll require is based on how well your body responds to the treatment. Maximum results can often be achieved with three to four treatments.

Following your initial treatment session, you may begin to notice a significant decrease in your symptoms. The frequency and the intensity of your snoring will be minimized. Most importantly, you’ll feel an improvement in the quality of your sleep.

No Need for Downtime

Because our laser treatment is gentle and non-invasive, there’s no need for a long recovery period. You may resume your daily routine after your appointment with our team.

Are You a Good Candidate for This Treatment?

Do you snore or have mild to moderate sleep apnea? NightLase treatments can be ideal for you, especially if you are looking for an alternative to surgery. If you suffer from the following issues, now might be the best time to consider laser treatment:

  • Frequent snoring
  • Sleep disturbances
  • Strained relationships with sleeping partners
  • Chronic fatigue due to poor sleep
  • Oxygen deprivation due to reduced airflow

During your initial consultation with our team, we can properly diagnose and prescribe an effective treatment plan for your health concerns. We can also examine your anatomy and health condition before ensuring that laser treatment can sufficiently address your concerns. If your snoring and sleep apnea are mostly due to narrow airways and relaxed tissues, our laser treatment can be perfect for you.
