Snoring Treatments

Stop Snoring Surgery Specialises in Radiofrequency Treatment.

If you have tried over-the-counter snoring remedies and amending your habits without success, radiofrequency snoring treatment could be a life-changing solution for you. It is the most painless and efficient method available to help stop snoring. It also effectively tackles a blocked nose, which can also be a cause of snoring.

 

ADVANTAGES

Radiofrequency treatment is quick, minimally invasive and safe.

It achieves fantastic, long-term results and is less traumatic than other surgical snoring treatments, particularly laser methods, which can result in considerable discomfort.

It requires no hospital stay, no general anaesthetic and no lengthy recovery period, meaning the patient can quickly proceed with normal life.

Radiofrequency treatment is:

  • Quick
  • Affordable
  • Relatively painless
  • Free from side effects
  • A long-term solution
  • Effective after just one treatment

It also retains the uvula, which is a piece of tissue in your throat which prevents food and drink being regurgitated through the nose. Laser ablation treatment removes the uvula with a laser beam, which can lead to regurgitation problems.

ABOUT RADIOFREQUENCY TREATMENT

Radiofrequency treatment is officially known as bipolar radiofrequency-induced thermotherapy (RFITT) and is a form of palatoplasty.

It uses the power of radiofrequency to physically alter tissues in the throat or nose - including trimming the uvula, if necessary - to reduce or eliminate snoring.

Stop Snoring Surgery’s radiofrequency treatment is performed by an experienced Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) NHS Consultant and is a quick procedure which causes very little discomfort.

How does it work?

Radiofrequency is a form of energy which can be manipulated to:

  • Cut tissue to reduce it, or change its shape.
  • Heat tissue to create scarring, which stiffens it.

This is effective because snoring results from airflow obstruction, which is often caused by enlarged or floppy tissues in the throat and nose. Radiofrequency snoring treatment directly tackles these features.

Radiofrequency snoring treatment

Radiofrequency treatment addresses the causes of snoring which result from obstructive tissues in the throat. For example, if the cause of a person’s snoring is a floppy uvula, radiofrequency can be used to tighten it, which means it is less likely to vibrate and make noise.

There are several different physical causes of snoring which radiofrequency treatment can solve.

For more information about physical causes, visit our Causes of Snoring page.

Radiofrequency blocked nose treatment

Radio frequency blocked nose treatment Radiofrequency treatment can also be used to tackle nasal congestion caused by obstructive tissues in the nose.

As with snoring treatment that focuses on the throat, for the blocked nose treatment radiofrequency energy is manipulated to physically change nasal tissue. For example, if the cause of a person’s blocked nose is enlarged turbinates (projections of soft tissue which line the nose), radiofrequency treatment can be used to reduce the turbinates.

Nasal congestion is a common cause of snoring and this treatment may alleviate snoring as well as improving nasal breathing.

RADIOFREQUENCY - BEFORE TREATMENT

At consultation, you will be assessed by one of our medical practitioners who will determine the cause(s) of your snoring. They will then discuss appropriate treatment plans with you, give you written information, and allow you to ask any questions about the procedure.

RADIOFREQUENCY - THE PROCEDURE

How long does it take?

Radiofrequency treatment takes just 20 to 30 minutes, with the application itself taking approximately 10 minutes.

How does it happen?

The consultant conducts an endoscopic examination of the patient and explains the procedure.

A local anaesthetic is then injected into the treatment area.

A probe is applied, which emits a low radiofrequency current at selected points, manipulating the tissue.

 

RADIOFREQUENCY - THE RESULTS

How long does it take to recover?

There is a short recovery time of 30 minutes afterwards; and staff check the patient’s condition before they leave the clinic.

The patient can then return immediately to normal activities.

Are there any side effects?

No. Any slight discomfort afterwards can be relieved by standard painkillers.

This level of discomfort is minor compared to that the laser method, which is considerably painful and lasts for several weeks. This is an important motivation for electing radiofrequency treatment instead.

When will results be visible?

This varies between patients, but most people see an improvement within four to six weeks.

Is further treatment required?

A follow-up appointment is arranged to check the patient’s progress. This will determine if any additional improvements could be made.
