1 What is Solea Sleep?
Solea® Sleep improves your quality of sleep by gently tightening tissue in your soft palate and reducing vibrations that cause you to snore. Unlike surgical procedures that require long and painful recoveries, Solea Sleep is a quick, comfortable, non-surgical procedure that is completed in a single visit. Enjoy rapid relief from snoring for you and your partner.
2 How does Solea Sleep work?
About 80% of people who snore are “palatal” or mouth snorers, which is snoring caused by the vibration of the soft palate tissue that has relaxed over time. A unique application of Solea’s specific wavelength allows the laser to gently and quickly tighten collagen fibers of the soft palate tissue in only one 5 minute session. The tightened soft palate tissue opens the airway and reduces vibrations that cause patients to snore and disrupt sleep.
3 Is Solea Sleep treatment painful?
No. The majority of patients report not feeling anything during the Solea Sleep procedure, while some report only a slight warm sensation. Before the procedure we apply a topical anesthetic spray to the soft palate to eliminate any discomfort or potential gagging. After treatment you may experience some minor tissue soreness or irritation that lasts about 24 hours.
4 How much does Solea Sleep cost?
The cost of Solea Sleep treatment is $750.
(If a secondary treatment is needed after 30 days of initial treatment, there is no charge for this treatment).
5 How long do Solea Sleep results last?
Solea Sleep results lasts on average 12 to 15 months. As with any procedure involving the tightening of elastic tissue, results are not permanent as collagen in the tissue naturally relaxes or loosens over time. For consistent long-term results we recommend that the Solea Sleep procedure be performed once a year.
