Before laser treatment, you can see that the airway was almost completely closed up!
After: Believe it or not, this is the same patient, the photo being taken just 20-minutes later! The laser treatment is painless, and after just one treatment, the airway is already opened up and looking much, much better.
Before laser treatment, the patient had been wearing a silicone-based nasal dilator to reduce snoring. This helped somewhat, but he said it irritated his nose and it often smelled bad.
After: In addition to the laser treatment, we provided the patient with a mu:te nasal dilator, which fits a bit better, dilates slightly more, and has none of the problems with irritation or smell.
Before laser treatment, we had the patient install and use the SnoreLab phone app to measure some “Epic” snoring.
After: Here are the results from the night after the first laser treatment (and using the new nasal dilator). The snoring intensity was greatly reduced.
