Solea enables a simple, non-surgical treatment that tightens and stiffens collagen in the soft palate with low-level laser light. Tightening and stiffening tissue reduces vibrations that commonly cause patients to snore. The treatment can be administered in under 5 minutes and is easier to perform than whitening or even a hygiene check. It enables rapid snoring relief for your patients, and significant revenue growth for your practice.
Treating snoring has never been easier!
Laser energy disrupts the cross-linking of collagen fibers in the tissue layers of the soft palate, causing collagen to contract and increasing the stiffness of the tissue. Cells and collagen, now in closer proximity, may also form new connections that further increase tissue stiffness over time. By tightening these tissue layers, Solea reduces the vibrations that cause patients to snore.
The penetration depth of Solea in soft tissue makes all the difference vs. erbium lasers. Solea efficiently delivers energy to deeper tissue layers that contain high concentrations of collagen without ablating superficial tissue layers. You can gently warm tissue at the perfect depth in the soft palate, resulting in rapid contraction and instant results.
An in vivo rat study confirmed Solea safely increases the stiffness of the soft palate and can be used as an effective treatment to reduce tissue vibrations that are associated with snoring.*
