Snoring treatments

Stop Snoring Surgery specialises in radio frequency treatment.

If you have tried over-the-counter snoring remedies and amending your habits without success, radio frequency snoring treatment could be a life-changing solution for you.

It is the most painless and efficient method available to help stop snoring.

In fact, we do more than just recommend radio frequency treatment… we have so much confidence in it that it is the only type of treatment we offer.

It also effectively tackles a blocked nose, which can be a cause of snoring or a separate problem.

 

ADVANTAGES

Radio frequency 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.

Radio frequency treatment is…

  • Quick
  • Affordable
  • Relatively painless
  • Free of 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 RADIO FREQUENCY TREATMENT

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

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

Stop Snoring Surgery’s radio frequency 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?

Radio frequency is a form of energy and 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. Radio frequency snoring treatment directly tackles these features.

Radio frequency snoring treatment

Radio frequency treatment addresses 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, radio frequency 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 radio frequency treatment can solve.

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

Radio frequency blocked nose treatment

Radio frequency blocked nose treatmentRadio frequency 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, radio frequency 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), radio frequency treatment can be used to reduce the turbinates.

Nasal congestion is a common cause of snoring; and is also an uncomfortable problem of its own.

RADIO FREQUENCY - BEFORE TREATMENT

Is it right for you?

A free consultation with Stop Snoring Surgery will determine whether radio frequency treatment is the right solution for your condition.

This takes the form of a 15-minute telephone appointment with a clinician, in which a question-and-answer session takes place – then an initial assessment is made.

This consultation is always carried out with a highly-qualified Stop Snoring Surgery clinician. We don’t employ sales people.

To book a free consultation, please visit our Contact page.

What does it cost?

The initial telephone consultation is free.

The pricing of the following treatment will depend on which course of action is most appropriate for you.

For information on pricing, please visit our Snoring FAQ page.

 

RADIO FREQUENCY - THE PROCEDURE

How long does it take?

Radio frequency treatment takes just 20 to 30 minutes – with the application itself taking approximately 10 minutes.

How does it happen?

The consultant conducts an endoscope 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 radio frequency current at selected points, manipulating the tissue.

 

RADIO FREQUENCY - 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 duties.

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 radio frequency 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.
