Snoring treatment

Snoring is a problem that most people underestimate.

Regular snoring can be a sign of a health problem, and disturbed sleep in turn leads to lack of concentration, reduced libido, psychosocial disturbances, irritability and even sleep apnea that occurs in 80% of snoring.

Sleep apnea is a breathing disorder during sleep and is a cause of constant daytime sleepiness, morning headaches, changes in stature, sexual disorders, short-term memory loss and hallucinations. It has been shown that sleep apnea often raises the risk of heart attack or stroke.

NightLase® is the latest laser therapy for snoring and night apnea in Bulgaria. It is a patented, painless, quick and non-invasive method that increases the quality and comfort of sleep. NightLase® limits and reduces snoring.


Specially trained and certified doctors guarantee the procedure’s success and patient safety.

Aestheline Dermatology Clinic works with a high-quality device of the leading laser manufacturer in the field of dermatology and aesthetics Fotona®.

Snoring is due to the disturbance of the air flow – inhaled and exhaled air cannot pass freely between nose and mouth during sleep. This happens because of a narrowing of the airways, which causes the tissues to vibrate and produces sound.

In more severe cases, breathing can be blocked – a condition known as “obstructive sleep apnea”.

There are a number of factors responsible for snoring: age, sinus disorders, obesity, alcohol, medication, and posture during sleep.

Laser treatment NightLase® reduces snoring by the use of Er: Yag laser beam, which heats and shrinks tissues raises the soft palate and uvula and opens the airways. Therapy itself takes place in 2 steps: preparation where the laser beam heats the tissues and then tightens the tissues. The soft and hard palate, the arcs, the tongue and the uvula are processed by the laser. During the procedure, intense warming is felt.

The duration of therapy is about 40 minutes.

Laser therapy is not effective enough when snoring is due to a health problem (eg nose deviation, sinus disease, obesity, etc.) or unhealthy habits such as excessive alcohol use or sedentary lifestyle.

It is advisable to carefully investigate the possible causes of the problem before initiating therapy and, if necessary, to conduct medical tests to exclude a snoring disorder.

No side effects of therapy were observed. The patient should warn the therapist if there is a strong nausea reaction.

The duration of the procedure is about 30-40 minutes.

The effect lasts more than a year, after which it is usually required to make a therapy between 12 and 18 months.

There is no recovery period and required specific post-treatment care.

After the procedure, the patient can immediately perform his / her daily activities.

It is possible in the morning after the procedure to feel a slight inflammation of the throat, which passes very quickly.

The complete course of treatment consists of 3 procedures within 6 weeks.
