Palate radiofrequency is performed in the office using local anesthesia. This procedure stiffens the soft palate using a controlled cauterization to create scar tissue. The soft palate tissues tighten, creating more space for breathing and reducing tissue vibration. There are multiple technologies available for palate radiofrequency, including bipolar (Coblation and Celon) and monopolar (temperature-controlled or Somnoplasty) radiofrequency. Palate radiofrequency usually requires two to three treatment sessions.
