Using Fotona NightLase therapy for the treatment of chronic snoring

We are all much too familiar with snoring, especially those struggling with sleep due to chronic snoring from their sleeping partner. While it is primarily harmless and not a cause for much concern, it can be devastating for individuals who have to listen to it every night. Fortunately, there are some snoring solutions for patients to consider, including the NightLase procedure available at RewindMD in Solana Beach, California.

What is the Fotona NightLase treatment, and how does it work?

The Fotona NightLase treatment is a highly desirable treatment option for our patients seeking a solution to chronic snoring. It uses a unique laser device that heats and tightens the soft tissues in the mouth, allowing patients to breathe properly when they sleep and ending snoring once and for all! This method is often more reliable than anti-snoring mouthpieces and over-the-counter mouthguards that advertise their abilities to reduce snoring.

What can I expect from the Fotona NightLase treatment?

This snoring solution requires patients to visit our office for treatment. A specialized Fotona Er: YAG laser is used in the mouth to deliver heat and light energy that tightens the oral mucosa tissue, often involved in developing chronic snoring. In doing this, patients can enjoy a non-invasive, non-surgical way to treat snoring and allow everyone in the house to get a good night’s rest!

Who is a candidate for NightLase treatment?

Dr. Scott Gillin of RewindMD encourages individuals thinking about the NightLase treatment to request a consultation to determine if they are a good fit for this procedure. Most patients with mild to moderate chronic snoring may enjoy the benefits of this treatment for many years to come!

What other solutions are available to reduce or stop snoring?

There are other ways of addressing chronic snoring that do not require NightLase treatment and are often suggested first before resorting to a more long-lasting solution. They include:

  • Maintaining a healthy weight
  • Adjusting your sleeping position
  • Staying hydrated
  • Avoiding alcohol
  • Avoiding sedatives
  • Using nasal strips and sprays
  • Other lifestyle changes as recommended

Is NightLase treatment permanent?

NightLase is a treatment that provides long-lasting results, often up to a year or so with a series of treatments. To maintain the results and enjoy better quality sleep with less snoring, you will need to see our providers regularly for treatments to keep the nighttime symphony at rest!
