Is Solea Sleep treatment painful?
No. The majority of patients report not feeling anything during the Solea Sleep procedure, while some report only a slightly 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 last 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 once a year.
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.
Does insurance cover Solea Sleep?
No. Both dental and medical insurance view Solea Sleep as an “elective” procedure.
