What is NightLase™️
Fotona’s NightLase®️* therapy is a patient-friendly laser treatment for improving the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase can reduce the effects of and decrease the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle laser treatment of the mucosa tissue.
The lightwalker by Fotona [FDA approved] is a modern day miracle in technology for treating snoring and sleep apnea.
Simple, Safe and Effective
Fotona’s patented laser modality optimizes the length of laser pulses, allowing for the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating.
With proper training NightLase has a high success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Research has shown that NightLase can reduce and attenuate snoring and provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of snoring.
Patients find NightLase to be a highly comfortable and satisfying solution. NightLase requires no device to be worn during sleep and involves no chemical treatment. It’s a gentle and easy way for patients to regain a good night’s rest.
NightLase is the opening of a blocked, underdeveloped or obstructed airway allowing oxygen to flow freely through your nose and mouth effortlessly. Over 90 million Americans suffer from some type of blockage. 30 million people are in serious trouble with their health. Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea are called the silent killer. Today snoring and sleep breathing disorders rival cancer for the number of deaths each year.
Complications arising from snoring and poor sleep (heart attacks, strokes, dementia, HBP- hypertension and immune system breakdown to name a few) are responsible for taking the lives of over 700,000 people per year. 80% of these folks have no idea that something is wrong, other than being tired during the day, morning headaches, mood swings, stuffed up sinuses, snoring and gasping for air at night.
Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea attack 36 different areas of the body.
The most common treatment for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea has been a CPAP or BIPAP or an oral appliance. Over 70% of the folks today that are prescribed a CPAP stop using their device within the first year. The allure of “being free if you have insurance” has fooled many patients worldwide. Once these patients have stopped using a CPAP, they are left in limbo and are back on the statistical nightmare of living a life with a health problem that is deadly and destructive to ones health and relationships. Snoring and poor sleep are now ranked number 3 for reasons people are uncoupling or divorcing.
NightLase™️ is a game-changer for many of these folks that suffer from an obstructed airway.
Normal breathing is silent breathing through your nose. It is quiet and effortless. It allows our bodies to go into normal deep, restorative sleep, and to awake refreshed and ready to take on each new day.
Snoring and Sleep Apnea are not normal breathing patterns, and they are not healthy!
90 Million People in America Suffer From Snoring. And this number is growing yearly with no end in sight.
30 Million of these folks are in trouble with their health. Less than 20% even know that they are sick.
Up to 2,000 people die every day, from complications associated with Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
