How Does Solea Sleep Work?
Most people are palatal snorers, meaning their snoring is due to the vibrating of their soft palate tissue. The vibration (or snoring) happens over time while the palate tissue loosens. The Solea laser gently tightens the collagen fibers in your soft palate tissue, which in turn opens your airway and reduces the vibrations that lead to snoring.
Benefits of Solea Sleep
– Your snoring is significantly reduced or eliminated
– You get deeper, better quality sleep
– You no longer disrupt your or your partner’s sleep
– You have more energy and a better mood
– Your memory, concentration, and learning improve
– You no longer wake up with a sore throat and/or headache.
What to Expect During and After Procedure
Most patients don’t feel anything during the Solea Sleep procedure. A small number report feeling a warm sensation from the laser. In order to eliminate potential pain or discomfort, we cover your soft palate with an anesthetic spray prior to the procedure. Afterwards, you may experience some minor irritation or soreness for about a day.
Typically, the results last between 12-15 months. Because the collagen in your soft palate tissue naturally loosens over time, Solea Sleep can never be a one-time procedure. To maintain the best results, we therefore advise patients to schedule a procedure once a year.
