What is Laser Snoring Treatment?
As a noninvasive laser procedure, Fotona’s NightLase® therapy is effective for increasing the quality of an individual's sleep. With the use of gentle, laser-induced tightening, NightLase helps to decrease the effects of sleep apnea and reduce the amplitude of snoring. It does so by altering the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue. At Southside Dermatology & Laser Cosmetic Center, we are proud to offer this patented Er:YAG laser modality to allow our Jacksonville, FL patients to live and sleep more comfortably. As a gentle treatment option, NightLase is safe for all patients. Learn more by contacting our modern facility to schedule your initial consultation with our experienced team.
