Snoring is a common problem that’s the third-leading cause of divorce in the U.S. If you snore, typical treatment recommendations include a CPAP mask or an oral appliance. While these are effective solutions for many patients, advancements in technology have created a new option that’s more convenient.
Solea Sleep is an innovative new treatment that uses a special laser to relieve snoring in just 5 minutes. With Solea Sleep, treating snoring has never been easier.
Solea Sleep offers several benefits that other snoring treatments can’t match. Some of these include:
- Significantly Reduces or Eliminates Snoring — Just one treatment can make a noticeable difference in your snoring, or get rid of it entirely. For long-term results, we often recommend undergoing the treatment once a year.
- Unmatched Speed — Solea Sleep laser treatment can be completed in just 5 minutes.
- Non-Invasive — The laser won’t cause any pain and the procedure doesn’t require a scalpel or stitches.
- Quick Recovery — Since the Solea Sleep laser leaves your tissue intact, you won’t have to worry about a long healing process or post-op instructions. Some patients report mild soreness or irritation, but this should fade within 24 hours.
Roughly 80% of the people who snore are palatal snorers. This means their snoring is caused by vibrations in the soft palate tissue, which typically relaxes over time and can lead to airway obstruction. This results in loud, frequent snoring that can prevent both you and your partner from getting the rest you need.
Solea Sleep treatment is specifically designed to address this issue. The laser's unique wavelength allows it to rapidly tighten collagen fibers in your soft palate tissue without any pain or discomfort. By tightening your soft palate tissue, the treatment helps to open your airway and reduce the vibrations that cause snoring.
We'll apply a topical anesthetic before the procedure to ensure you're comfortable. Most patients report feeling no pain at all during or after the procedure. Best of all, the treatment can be completed in just five minutes and you won't have to wear an appliance or mask while you're sleeping.
If you or your partner struggle with snoring, it's important to find a solution before the issue starts to impact your health and relationship. Thanks to Solea Sleep, Dr. Henrichsen can provide the relief you need without invasive surgery or an uncomfortable CPAP mask.
