The soft palate is the key to snoring relief. When there is an obstruction in the airway, breathing causes the back of the tongue, the uvula and the soft palate to vibrate… loudly.
Stiffening the soft palate can reduce this vibration and therefore reduces snoring intensity—all in as little as 20 minutes!
How Does Palate Reduction Work?
Reduction of the Soft Palate is a safe, effective procedure that uses radio frequency (RF) energy to form channels in the tissue of the soft palate. The body’s natural response is to form scar tissue in these channels, which stiffens the soft palate as it heals over the coming weeks.
Because Palate Reduction uses low-RF energy, it typically provides results with less discomfort than laser devices and other more invasive procedures.
Does It Work?
Most patients experience a significant reduction in snoring within 6 weeks of the procedure. While not a permanent solution, reduction typically offers years of relief from disruptive snoring, at a fraction of the cost of other popular procedures.
Am I A Candidate For Soft Palate Reduction?
Our Board Certified Physicians will tell you if you are a good candidate for reduction. If our physicians determine you are a candidate, the procedure can be performed during the same office visit in less than 20 minutes, and you can return to normal activities immediately.
