What is Solea® Sleep?

Solea® Sleep is a simple, quick, and comfortable 5 minute laser treatment that provides rapid relief to people who snore. Solea Sleep is non-invasive (ultra-lower power) and patient-friendly with no or minimal discomfort or downtime. Treating snoring has never been easier!

How does Solea® Sleep work for Snore Therapy?

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. What kind of snorer am I?

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.

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 about once a year. For this reason, we provide a discounted price for patients who schedule their annual visits within the 12-15 month window of time. 

Does Solea Sleep treat Sleep Apnea?

No. Solea Sleep is not a treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a serious health condition that involves partial or complete obstruction of the airway and reduced blood oxygenation levels. However, snoring is a major symptom in undiagnosed or diagnosed sleep apnea patients, and Solea Sleep treatment can provide significant relief from snoring and improvements in their quality of sleep.

What are alternative treatment options to Solea Sleep?

There are a number of treatment options available to treat snoring.   One common alternative to treat palatal snoring is a mandibular advancement device, sometimes referred to as a snoreguard, that is worn during sleep to advance the jaw and open the airway. Treatment with Solea Sleep does not prevent future use of these devices if your snoring were to persist after treatment. 

Other laser treatment options for snoring exist. One option called Nightlase uses a different type of laser than Solea, with energy being absorbed by the superficial layers of tissue. While treatment sessions take longer with this approach and multiple visits are required, patients report high levels of satisfaction with the procedure. Because of the additional time required (usually 3-4 sessions lasting 30 minutes each), Nightlase typically is up to three times more expensive for patients than Solea Sleep.

For severe cases, surgical options exist where tissue is removed that is obstructing the airway. These procedures, called a uvulopalatopharyngoplasty or uvulopalatoplasty, have shown mixed clinical outcomes and can result in significant post-operative pain. These treatments would typically be performed by an ENT. Other approaches that may improve your snoring include cessation of alcohol and tobacco, as well as weight loss. Sleeping on your side instead of your back may also help.
