Having trouble sleeping is just about the most frustrating thing there is – unless you also snore, in which case your partner may be the frustrated one! Fortunately, there are many ways you can try to deal with this problem, from drugs you can take to machines you wear at night to help you breathe. Fotona Nightlase is the newest way to deal with sleep problems, and it has many benefits over other methods!
What is Fotona Nightlase?
Snoring can result when the tissues at the back of the throat are enlarged. Nightlase therapy uses a heated laser to make these tissues contract, which allows the airway to open enough to allow air to flow freely, putting a stop to snoring and helping you to sleep better.
CPAP machines and surgery may help you to breathe better, but surgery is invasive and can be quite the hassle, and most people find CPAP machines bulky and uncomfortable. Nightlase involves no cutting or surgery, just a heated laser. Patients report it is not painful (anesthesia isn’t even needed), and there is no downtime afterwards, meaning you can get back to your normal activities as soon as you leave your doctor’s office. You may have a sore throat for a few days afterwards – drink lots of water and take an over-the-counter pain reliever.
Most patients will have about 3 treatments spread out over about 6 weeks, and the results will last for about a year. After that time, if the snoring begins again, one “touch-up” visit is often all that is needed.
Why worry about snoring?
Snoring isn’t just annoying to those around you; it can make it difficult to get a good night’s sleep. It can be hard to function and enjoy life when you are tired all the time. And, over time, not sleeping well can lead to health issues such as cardiovascular problems.
