The difficulties of sleeping next to a person who snores has frequently been joked about on sitcoms for years. However, for those who are suffering with this problem, it is no laughing matter. Snoring is known to be caused by enlarged tonsils, tongue, or even obesity, and it may cause sleep difficulties for loved ones and the individual who snores. These difficulties may include fatigue, insomnia, poor quality of sleep, or other various health problems that are linked to snoring. One major health problem associated with snoring is sleep apnea, where the sufferer may cease breathing while sleeping, potentially leading to reduced oxygen intake, headaches, and poor concentration the next day. Fortunately, there are several treatment options available, including laser snoring therapy.
Here are a just a few of the many ways in which laser snoring therapy at our office may help you to sleep better and stop or minimize your snoring.
1) Sleep apnea is when an individual periodically and repeatedly stops breathing throughout the sleep cycle due to the throat muscles relaxing to the point that they may obstruct a person’s airway. Indications that a person is dealing with sleep apnea include feeling fatigued or tired after a full night of seemingly restful, uninterrupted sleep. Through laser snoring therapy, the impact of sleep apnea can be significantly reduced by increasing air flow. This means concentration may improve, headaches may cease, and energy may increase.
2) Snoring, depending on the severity, may be excessively loud. This may cause interrupted sleep for both the individual sleeping and their loved ones, especially if someone’s partner is not a heavy sleeper. Continuously interrupted sleep may cause issues that would normally not present themselves if a full and restful night of sleep had been had. This may include poor concentration, headaches, and moodiness. With laser snoring therapy, the volume of snoring can be significantly reduced, resulting in better sleep for snorers and their families.
Laser treatment for snoring may not only ease the symptoms associated with snoring, but it may also increase quality of life for snorers and those they sleep next to and hold dear. If you or your loved one snores loudly and suffers with depression, mood swings, headaches, and fatigue, sleep apnea may be the cause. To safely determine if this is the case, scheduling an appointment with our medical professional at Derm Aesthetica Med Spa is the first and wisest step to gaining that diagnosis. Only then will you be able to fully discuss any potential treatment options and decide which treatment will work best for you and your unique circumstances.
