aspireMD - NightLase

NightLase is an innovative laser treatment to minimize snoring. The aspireMD laser focuses the Medical Power of Light to photothermally heat, and thereby tighten, the collagen in the oral mucosa tissue at the back of the throat (nasopharynx), reducing the issues of sleep apnea, difficulty breathing and resultant snoring. Until now, we’ve only had surgical reduction, with its associated hospitalization, recovery and potential serious complications, as a treatment option. 


80% of patients report reduction in snoring as well as apnea episodes with our non-surgical alternative treatment for snoring!

During your first visit, you will meet with Dr. Jane Burk-Vassallo and a member of the aspireMD healthcare team for a complimentary consultation. After reviewing your medical history, Dr. Burk-Vassallo will address your current concerns, applying her 20+ year professional expertise to your care. After diagnosing the issues that require attention to achieve your personal goals, Dr Jane Burk-Vassallo will prioritize and explain all options available to you. Dr. Jane believes knowledge is empowering! A full explanation of each recommendation to be considered, including the benefits and risks, will be reviewed with you. An in-depth conversation about your concerns and desired outcomes will help formulate the best treatment approach for you.

The aspireMD health professionals will take great care of you from start to finish on your journey to own your future. Your better begins here!

After your initial consultation, when all your questions have been answered and you are comfortable with the treatment plan, your informed consent will be obtained. Expect to have your photograph taken to record your baseline image and celebrate your improvement. Your photographs will be kept in your file with the same strict confidentiality as the rest of your medical records.

Dr. Jane will perform a thorough evaluation of your mucosal tissue, muscle tone/contractility and anatomical orientation to quantify the expected level of improvement.

Within a painless 15 minute session, the entire nasopharynx is treated with Smooth Mode Erbium Laser through a small hand piece. The most uncomfortable part of the treatment is holding your mouth open throughout it. Breaks are provided as needed.

  • Patients may resume regular activities immediately following the procedure, as there is no downtime.  
  • You will be given verbal and written instructions of what to avoid and what to do to encourage the best results.
  • Initially, you will be aware of a fullness in your throat.
  • Your snoring may be the same or worse, only for the first 1-2 nights.
  • Improvement will become increasingly noticeable over the next two weeks, compounding results with subsequent treatments.
  • The recommended protocol consists of three treatments, administered every two weeks with yearly review and maintenance treatments.

I just had to tell you Dr. Jane, this morning was the first time in as long as I can remember that I woke up feeling refreshed and without a cranky wife I had kept up all night! Thank you!
