What is Nightlase?

What actually causes snoring that could lead to a Nightlase procedure?
According to many sleep apnea/snoring experts, there are most likely millions of snorers and of those who snore, 1/3 is affected by sleep apnea.

Nightlase uses a very gentle, superficial, Erbium: Yag laser light to tighten the tissue of the soft palate and tongue to reduce the sounds of snoring and lessens the effects of sleep apnea
Is Nightlase painful?
Nightlase is not painful and does NOT require any anesthesia!
The Nightlase Procedure
Nightlase is extremely effective. In most cases, 3-5 treatments are needed, and each treatment lasts about 30-45 minutes. Patients can expect to eat, drink, talk, and live a completely normal life immediately after this painless treatment
What is the difference between using softlase for the soft pallet or the nose? Do you need to see a different doctor?
Nightlase can improve snoring and sleep apnea. A screening process has to be implemented to ensure the soft palate and tongue are the cause of your snoring and that a referral to a sleep physician is not needed
