Unlike many Filipinos think, snoring is not a good sign of sleep. In fact, snoring can be caused by different factors such as throat weakness, misaligned jaw, accumulation of fat in and around the throat, touching tissues on top of the throat airways, and wrong sleeping position i.e. lying on one’s back.
Snoring can also be a sign of sleep apnea, a serious medical condition whereby a person’s breathing involuntarily stops and deprive the body of the oxygen it needs while the patient is asleep. A serious side effect of this condition is sudden cardiac death.
While many hardworking people in the Philippines suffer from snoring, including those who are indirectly affected by snoring loved ones – treatments both surgical and mechanical like face masks or dental appliance are not comfortable & easy solutions to many Filipinos.

Luminisce Holistic Skin Innovations, a boutique skin & laser clinic in Bonifacio Global City recently brought in the latest in non-invasive, patient-friendly laser treatment to reduce snoring and increase the quality of a patient’s sleep.
The innovative treatment is made possible by a machine called Fotona NightLase. NightLase reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.
Unlike traditional treatments, Luminisce’s Fotona NightLase treatment does not require surgery, injections, or devices to be worn during sleep and does not involve chemical treatments. On average, the procedure will only require 15 minutes and a 50% reduction in snoring is achieved after a single session.
London trained Dra. Kristina Cuevas-Reyes of Luminisce Skin & Laser Clinic recommends three 15-minute sessions done in the course of 2 months for best results.
Luminisce Skin & Laser Clinic is located at 2/F Mercury Drug Building, across St. Luke’s Medical Center-Global City, 32nd Street corner 4th Avenue, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. You can also book your Fotona NightLase treatment through www.luminisce.com or call 5118500/ 09778044601/09159794661.
