Treatment of snoring

45% of men and 30% of women snore regularly. Although it may seem just an annoying sound phenomenon, it might lead to severe health issues and diseases.

The reasons behind snoring

During sleep the airways collapse, which can be attributed to excessively lax muscles of the pharynx and soft palate. Other reasons might include nosehedge-warp, or the adenoid being enlarged during childhood. Due to the collapse of the airways, breathing is obstructed, and the resonance of the mechanisms of the respiratory organs becomes audible, which we call snoring.

The risks of snoring

  • insomnia
  • lack of concentration
  • decreased libido
  • psychological and social injuries
  • irritability
  • obstructive sleeping apnea (OSA)
Obstructive sleeping apnea (OSA) causes drowsiness during the day, headache in the morning, automatic behavior, mood swings, sexual dysfunctions, short-term memory loss and hallucination. These might be life-threatening for the patient even individually.

Options for treatment

There are various options for stopping snoring, but these are either very uncomfortable, painful, or offer only a short-term solution.
With the NightLase treatment available at our clinic, we can offer a permanent solution virtually painlessly.

How does the NightLase treatment work?

We treat snoring using the most modern Er:YAG laser machine, by tightening the uvula, the soft palate and the surrounding tissue parts with laser beams.
The procedure is minimally invasive and practically painless, so it does not require anesthesia. After the treatment, there is no uncomfortable feeling, patients can continue their routine lifestyle, no post-treatment is necessary at home. With NightLase, snoring can be completely stopped in 2 months. Nothing else is needed, only 3 short treatments that take about 20 minutes each. The effect of the laser treatment is noticeable even after the first treatment.

To whom is NightLase treatment not recommended?

  • pregnant women
  • overweight people
  • patients treated with photosensitive medication therapy

Arrange an appointment to our clinic for a NightLase treatment if you wish to say goodbye to snoring and its dire consequences.
