When it comes to your beauty routine, sleep may be the closest thing there is to a fountain of youth. Whether it’s your partner keeping you awake, or your own snoring, a lack of sleep and untreated snoring can have some serious impacts on your health and wellbeing. Our consultants are experts at recognising the symptoms of snoring and sleep apnoea and can advise the best way to help you manage, reduce or even prevent snoring with the aid of our revolutionary laser treatment.
Both snoring and sleep apnoea occur when the soft tissue at the back of the throat relaxes during sleep, it falls into the airway, narrowing it. As a consequence of the reduction of oxygen to the brain, the brain sends a signal enforcing a deeper inhalation to get more air in. The more forceful breath through the narrowed airway causes a vibration of the soft tissues at the back of the pallet. This is what causes the snoring sound.
SleepTight is a revolutionary, non-surgical laser treatment that works to treat the root cause of snoring and sleep apnoea. There are many alternatives such as mouth guards, nasal strips, chin straps and other devices, which all claim to stop snoring. However few of them address the root issue and often compliance with their use is poor.
SleepTight works by tightening the lax tissue in your throat. The treatment involves three quick and painless twenty minute laser treatments, within a four week period. You will feel your airways are more open after the first session.
A definite change and improvement to your breathing and snoring will come into full effect six months after the last SleepTight session.
