Studies have indicated that about 24% of couples are affected by their partner’s snoring habits. Snoring, however, doesn’t have to be something you always have to live with.
Like all other sounds, snoring results from vibrations that cause particles in the air to form sound waves similar to speaking, where our vocal cords vibrate to create our voice. The vibrations that cause snoring are produced by turbulent airflow due to narrowed airways between the nose and the larynx. The noise arises from efforts to push air through this narrowed passageway.

The latest treatment known as Snore 3 has been introduced to treat snoring. Let’s see how you can put an end to snoring with Snore 3.
What is Snore3?
Snore3 is a non-invasive and pain-free use of lasers that put an end to the misery of snoring. Snore3 is a patented laser protocol from Elexxion, Germany. First designed by Dr. Darius, the science behind the treatment is simple. The laser is aimed directly at the uvula, palate, and pillars of the throat using a specially-designed handset that causes the collagen to shrink at first and then regenerate at a later stage. Consequently, the muscle tone of the tissues increases that allowing more room for airflow. Although the laser used is a high-power laser, the procedure is painless, and patients only feel a bit of warmth during the session.
What are the causes of snoring?
Several factors can obstruct the airway that leads to snoring, such as:
- Long soft palate and uvula: A long soft palate (the roof of the mouth) or a long uvula (the dangling tissue in the back of the mouth) may narrow the nasal airway opening. When these structures vibrate and bump against each other, the airway becomes obstructed, causing one to snore.
- Thick throat tissue: Being overweight can result in bulky throat tissues. Certain cases have been reported in which children who have large tonsils also snore.
- Physically obstructed nasal airways: Disproportion of the nose such as a deviated septum or nasal polyps can cause such obstruction. Some patients only snore during allergy season or when suffering from a sinus infection.
- Poor muscles in the mouth cavity: Sometimes, throat and tongue muscles can be too relaxed, causing them to collapse and fall back into the airway. It is a result of deep sleep, consumption of alcohol or sleeping pills. Aging also causes the further relaxation of these muscles.
Is there a painless solution for snoring?
While there are solutions to cure snoring, they all involve surgical interventions to reduce the soft palate and uvula by cutting off the excess tissue and reshaping what remains. As a result of these interventions, scarring occurs on the palate. However, there is a non-surgical treatment for snoring called snore 3.
Why Opt for Snore3?
Snore3 treatment is conducted over three sessions, each session lasting for about 20 minutes. It is so effective that the opening of airways can be witnessed after the first session itself.
The advantages of Snore3 are as follows:
- You don’t experience any pain
- There is no recovery time
- You don’t have to worry about infection or cross-contamination.
Most impressive of all, Snore3 is going digital. Now with its very own mobile app, patients can monitor their snoring patterns before a session. Also, you can check your recovery during the entire treatment period and track its positive effects.
Who is the candidate for Snore3?
If you snore due to palate, uvula, and pillar issues, you are a suitable candidate for Snore3 treatment. Patients who suffer from a deviated septum, nasal polyps, or enlarged tongue base are not suitable candidates for the Snore 3 procedure.
