How it works
As mentioned, Fotona NightLase treatments are designed to correct snoring. During sleep, the muscles in the roof of the mouth, tongue and throat relax. If relaxed enough, this can block your airways and cause the nose and throat tissues to vibrate.
Fotona NightLase treatments use laser energy to gently heat the tissues at the back of the throat. This stimulates the production of collagen in those areas, working to expand airways and eliminate tissue vibration. As a result, snoring is dramatically reduced.
What to expect
Prior to your treatment, we recommend having a consultation at Medical Aesthetics to discuss your concerns and procedure expectations, after which we can create a treatment plan.
Fotona NightLase treatments take around 30 minutes to complete. During treatment, a special device may be used to hold your jaw forward. Using the specialised handpiece, laser energy will be administered to the targeted area of the soft palate and throat. You may experience a tingling or warming sensation, however, treatments overall are relatively painless. After your Fotona NightLase treatment, you are immediately free to resume your regular activities.
