25 Nov NightLase: A revolutionary new treatment for sufferers of snoring and sleep apnoea
Those who suffer from snoring or sleep apnoea have an exciting new treatment option available to them. NightLase is a quick, non-invasive, painless laser treatment with 90% efficacy rate.
What is NightLase?
NightLase harnesses the power of the Er:YAG laser which has previously been used mainly in dentistry to remove tooth decay. However Er:YAG laser light has now been found to be extremely effective in shrinking the soft palate and uvula. Inflammation or drooping of these areas of the mouth and throat is often the cause of snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea.
How does it work?
The NightLase laser works in two phases. Firstly, the laser gently heats the tissue of the throat and mouth. It then strengthens the tissue, ultimately causing shrinkage and tightening of the swollen areas and opening up the air flow to the mouth and nose. This allows patients relief from snoring and sleep apnoea, increasing sleep quality for the sufferer and their partners.
How many treatments are needed?
The NightLase method requires just three, 20-minute treatments over a period of 45 days, meaning the entire course of treatment is completed in just 6 weeks.
What are the risks and benefits?
The NightLase method is extremely effective at reducing the frequency and volume of snoring as well as treating sleep apnoea. Dr Mark Levi and world renowned Dr Harvey Shiffman (Florida, USA) get an average improvement of 75% or greater using the NightLase laser treatment (with the Florida protocols). The procedure is quick, non-invasive and painless with no downtime and requires no anesthetic. Extensive clinical trials have not found any side effects, but like all treatments, NightLase is not the best option for all patients. At Dr Levi’s sleep clinic, we always carry out a complete sleep analysis before recommending any course of treatment, so we will only suggest NightLase if it is right for for you.
