The Fotona laser treatment is non-invasive and can help to tackle the problem of excessive snoring during sleep. It is the perfect treatment for patients that are anxious about surgery, with a non-ablative laser utilised to tighten skin at the back of your mouth as well as stimulate collagen production in the treated area to stimulate self-repair.
The Fotona laser optimizes the length of laser pulse which allows the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. These treatments are gentle enough to be used inside the mouth but strong enough to provide clinically effective heating.
This also leads to a contraction in the back of the throat which can offer better support to the uvula and airways where snoring comes from. As a result, a larger airway allows for a greater intake of oxygen during breathing and reduces snoring substantially.
The procedure is carried out in two simple steps:
It is a very swift treatment which can be performed in mere minutes and is clinically proven to reduce snoring substantially. In some cases, it may even be eliminated completely but it is important to note that this will not be the case for everyone, with results varying from person to person.
Fotona laser treatment has a high success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Experts have shown that Fotona laser treatment reduces and attenuates snoring. It also provides an effective, non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea. Other benefits that offer by fotona laser include:
Snoring affects many people of all ages, but it can be extremely problematic for select individuals, especially if it is very loud. The sound made by snoring is caused when the muscles in the throat, tongue and roof of the mouth are all relaxed, resulting in the loose throat tissue sagging. During breathing, this tissue tends to flap about which causes the airways to tighten up, or in some cases, become completely blocked. The narrower the airways are, the greater the vibration caused by breathing, leading to extremely loud snoring.
The heat generated by the Fotona laser during the therapy induces collagen contraction and neocollagenesis, resulting in a tightening of the soft palate and surrounding tissues. This causes a rise of the soft palate and a tightening of the tissues of the oropharynx, resulting in an increase of the airway volume.
Do drink a lot of water before and after the nightlase treatment to relieve the discomfort.
In addition, this laser treatment for snoring is not painful and also does not lead to any complications after the procedure. Only mild discomfort during the treatment was recorded and no other adverse effects.
No downtime required for this treatment as you can continue your usual activities after the procedure. Treatments should ideally be done once every three weeks until significant improvements are noticeable, but this will depend on your condition. Repeat sessions can also improve how long the effects of the Fotona laser lasts for, and this will be discussed with you during the consultation session with our doctors.
Sleep next to the snorer at night can drive a person to feel irrational and annoyed toward the person disrupting their rest every night. Seeking a better solution like a snoring laser will be a great discovery for them. Treatment with Fotona snoring laser cost ranges of RM 1,800 to RM 2,500 per session including GST.
