Avi Weisfogel’s Contributions to Sleep Disorders

Many people love staying awake late at night. However, this behavior can be detrimental, as it denies the body the chance to repair and rejuvenate itself for the seven to nine hours recommended. According to sleep experts, sleeping for less than six hours can affect the appearance and health of a person.

Some signs reflect inadequate sleep which includes drooping of the mouth corners, dark circles, sagging among others. Just to explain a few, the soft tissue that surrounds the eyes experience puffiness leading to sagging. Dark circles occur when the blood flow is not normal around the eyes due to sleep deprivation.

Moreover, a person may experience hair loss as lack of sleep decreases blood flow which causes hair follicles to get less nourishment. Therefore, it causes weak hair which breaks quickly. Collagen, a protein that provides the skin with elasticity is produced by the body to repair the skin during sleep. If there is sleep, collagen will be limited thus a person experiences wrinkles and eyes sagging.

There are complex issues that can cause lack of sleep, such as sleep apnea, a disorder where breathing is interrupted during sleep. Dr. Avi Weisfogel is an expert in treating sleep apnea, where he provides a device that supports the jaw opening the upper airway thus providing a good sleep.
