Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre offers a non-surgical solution for those suffering from snoring or sleep apnea. NightLase® is a non-invasive gentle laser treatment that can increase a patients quality of sleep (and the sleep of those around them). This treatment is known to reduce the effects of sleep apnea and decrease the amplitude of snoring in a gentle and safe way.


  • Suitable for all patients
  • Non-invasive
  • Highly comfortable

How it works

The NightLase® treatment uses the Er:YAG laser to safely heat the oral mucosa tissue resulting in the contraction of existing collagen and formation of new healthy collagen. This gradual tightening can help keep the airway open, thus reducing the amplification and intensity of snoring/apnea.

What to expect

Your visit to Vancouver Laser for the NightLase® treatment will take less than 1 hour and is a very comfortable procedure.


Some patients report an improvement in the grade of snoring and/or sleep apnea after the first treatment, however the full results will be seen after 3 treatments.

Recommended sessions

1 treatment every 2 weeks for 3 sessions with maintenance as needed. The improvement expected is relative to the degree of the snoring/apnea condition.

Possible downtime

  • None

Post treatment care
