Anyone who has had this procedure please advise.

So far I have had 2 nightlase treatments with no noticeable change in my snoring volume. my average volume is around 97% and hasn't dropped below 95% after treatment (snorelab App) snorelab score is still around 90%. I am still booked in for my last treatment in 3 weeks.

My question is for those who have had this procedure. Was there any noticeable difference after 2 treatments ? How long did it take to notice a change ? If nothing has changed after 2 treatments is it worth hanging in there and spending another $500 for the third treatment ?

Seems to me that Nightlase is touted as a sleep apnea mitigation treatment while snoring is their big target. A lot of folks who have snoring issues also have sleep apnea which has much greater health implicatons while being less annoying to others I guess. Did you get a sleep study done for OSI? If not, I would consider it and then follow up with whichever therapy route makes the most sense to you. Nightlase is touted as a holistic approach to snoring and sleep apnea so I would want to know for sure if sleep apnea is part of the whole issue. If they didn't do a study, how the heck do they know it would help as snoring and OSA are very much related?

You might check with your dental specialist for an appliance to help reduce your snoring. Glad you had no apnea.

Well, that is great news as I was a snoring machine and after starting therapy, that is a thing of the past although a mask doesn't seem to be a great solution for a person with a snoring issue. Good luck on your hunt for info; not sure if a sleep apnea message board will help a lot as most here are using either dental appliances or PAP gizmos for OSA.
