Snoring is a very common issue that can have significant impacts on a person’s quality of life and long-term health. Snoring can be caused by the vibration of loose tissue in the back of the throat (soft palate).
In extreme cases the airway can become blocked which is known as obstructive sleep apnea. Many factors can contribute to snoring such as age, nasal and sinus problems, being overweight, alcohol, smoking, medications, and sleep posture. Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition that needs to be assessed in a sleep laboratory. Fotona treatments may assist the condition, but do not cure sleep apnea.
Laser energy is used to heat the tissues of the airway causing a tightening effect which helps to keep your airway open. Each treatment lasts about 15-30 minutes and requires no anesthesia. Patients find the procedure to be quite comfortable and can resume their daily routine immediately afterwards as there is no downtime.
