You may notice some changes after your first treatment as the heat causes the tissues at the back of your throat to contract. However, the maximum effect of the SleepTight treatment program and the results on your snoring and sleep apnoea symptoms will be most noticeable six months after your third treatment as your collagen production strengthens and tightens the tissue.

How long will my result last?

Over the 12 months and compliance with the program with the seven lasers, we expect the maximum improvement in snoring and sleep quality. At the completion of this part of the program, we expect most compliant patients to be independent of the laser treatments. Some patients will elect to have some ongoing treatments when they feel it is necessary.

Please note that SleepTight laser treatment for snoring is an extremely effective method of reducing your snoring – but this is not the case for all people. Also, the longer you leave this treatment, the more severe the condition may become. For some people, the SleepTight treatment may not be suitable for their needs. This will be assessed during your initial consultation to see if you’re a suitable candidate for the procedure. If you’re not suitable for the SleepTight treatment, other alternative treatments may be discussed.
