Kids and adults alike snore occasionally but when snoring becomes frequent, it may affect your quality and quantity of sleep, not to mention the other members of your family.
How does it work?
It aims to reduce the collapsibility of the area close to your throat or your oropharyngeal segment. Laser treatment is designed to contract and tighten the skin near the uvula. You can surf the internet to know more about nasal laser therapy.

The majority of surgeons advocate a nasendoscopy procedure (assessment of the nose and throat structures) before doing its laser treatment to understand the extent of your obstruction.
Laser treatment for snoring, sleep apnea, and the more serious obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) involves directing a mild laser at the tissue and soft palate located near the uvula, in a series of non-invasive procedures.
As the laser comes in contact with this soft tissue it stimulates collagen under the skin while also causing it to shrink and tighten. It is this retraction of the soft palate area that opens up the airways and allows the patient to breathe more freely during sleep.
Patients undergoing laser treatment experience no pain during this walk-in, walk-out procedure. It can take as little as 30 minutes, with patients requiring 2-5 sessions on average. Some patients receive excellent results after only 1 treatment.
Why Choose Laser Treatment for Snoring?
If you have tried all possible remedies for snoring and have been unsuccessful, and if your snoring is disruptive to others around you then you should try laser treatment.
