Fotona Nightlase

Nightlase® Treatment is a patented, fast, non-invasive and friendly way of increasing the quality of a patient’s sleep. Nightlase® lessens the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring through the use i of gentle, superf cial Er:YAG laser light.

Fotona systems, like the LightWalker and Dynamis, enable a strong yet gentle Er:YAG modality which optimizes the length of every pulse. This mode allows for the superficial penetration of heat into tissue, without damage or adverse effects. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating. NightLase® Treatment parameters can be preprogrammed into the Dynamis or LightWalker, making treatments easy to perform.

Laser light strengthens the tissue. A full course of Nightlase® treatment is comprisec of three separate treatment sessions over a six week period. The final result of the treatment has been shown to last up to a year. When the patients or their loved ones notice the effects erroding, another round of treatment can be performed.
