From congestion and difficulty breathing to disruptions in sleep and overall well-being, nasal breathing issues can significantly affect your quality of life. Chronic nasal breathing and congestion problems can show up in a variety of ways. Some people experience congestion when laying down, but improves when standing up.

Using some topical and local anesthesia, your doctor will use a laser to shrink these tissues and create a permanent improvement in your breathing.

This procedure takes just 15 minutes, requires no downtime and causes minimal discomfort.

After just a couple of weeks of some congestion, you'll see a noticeable improvement in your breathing.

What causes


Chronic nasal breathing problems are often due to problems with swollen tissues in your nose called turbinates or swell bodies on the septum.

These tissues can get larger over time due to chronic allergies or other conditions, which can lead to chronic nasal blockage.

Common symptoms of chronic nasal breathing problems include:

  • Congestion in general
  • Congestion when laying down compared to standing up
  • Congestion on one side when laying on side
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Snoring
  • Disrupted sleep
