What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep Apnea is a disorder that causes breathing to stop several times throughout the night, significantly decreasing quality of sleep for the individuals impacted. More than 22 million Americans suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, and left untreated, can leave patients feeling extremely fatigued and lacking concentration day-to-day. It also puts patients at a higher risk of heart attacks and strokes, so treatment is crucial for the patient’s well-being and quality of life.
The Treatment Process
Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is a non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment for increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. NightLase reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.
