NightLase® for Better Sleep
NightLase® – Laser Snoring Treatment
More than 40% of people snore and while many factors can contribute to poor sleep, we all know getting quality sleep is essential for optimal health.
Snoring occurs when air is not able to move freely through your nose and mouth during sleep. This is due to a narrowing of your airway, which causes tissues to vibrate and make audible sound.
Sleep deprivation as a result of snoring and sleep disordered breathing has a negative impact on health and quality of life. Snorers can experience tiredness, morning headaches, irritability, and dry mouth. Studies have also shown a link between snoring and increased risks for other health conditions including hypertension, heart attack, stroke, anxiety and depression, weight gain and worsening type II diabetes.
What is NightLase®?
NightLase® is a fast, groundbreaking laser procedure for the treatment of snoring, offered exclusively with Fotona® Nd:YAG and Er:YAG lasers. It is a non-invasive, painless, and effective way of reducing or eliminating snoring.
What are the advantages?
- Increases the quality of sleep
- Potential alternative to CPAP or oral appliances
- No anesthesia or needles required
- Very little downtime
How does NightLase® work?
Laser light is used to gently heat the tissues of the airway causing a tightening effect to help keep your airway open. As we age, the structures inside the mouth lose collagen and become lax, which can lead to snoring. By tightening these tissues, snoring is reduced or eliminated.
NightLase® requires no anesthesia and is quick, comfortable, and effective. You can resume your daily routine immediately afterwards.
What to expect:
Most patients require at least three treatment sessions to realize the full benefits of the procedure, though many notice improvements after the first session. Treatments are scheduled three weeks apart.
During the procedure, your mouth will feel warm, but not uncomfortable. The process is quick, requiring only 30-minute sessions. You may experience a mild sore throat for a few days

“I have been a patient of Dr. Lauren Procopio for about 3 years. I have used her specialty in therapeutic I.V. to avoid the flu this year twice, as well as Iron I.V. to treat my iron anemia. I am thankful there are options available for a self employed practitioner to maintain my health, avoid time loss, and walk the health talk. The treatments available go way beyond this and I highly recommend her as a Naturopathic Doctor.”
