The VIVAER® Procedure
Do you ever feel like you just can’t get enough air?
That’s The First Symptom of Nasal Airway Obstruction.
Nasal airway obstruction feels like you have a congested or blocked nose, and it can significantly affect the quantity of air you can inhale.
What Causes Nasal Airway Obstruction?
There is a triangular area in your nasal passage called the “Nasal Valve.” The nasal valve is made up of three parts:
- The Septum is the narrow ridge of bone and tissue between the two nostrils.
- The Turbinates are fingerlike areas of tissue that warm, humidify, and direct air as it enters your nasal cavity.
- The Lateral Wall is the side tissue that forms the outer wall of your nose.
When one of these parts becomes enlarged it will decrease the area in the nasal valve and lead to a Nasal Airway Obstruction that reduces the airflow through the nasal passages.
Signs And Symptoms Of Nasal Airway Obstruction
- Chronic nasal congestion
- Persistent nasal blockage or obstruction
- Difficulty breathing through the nose
- Difficulty Sleeping
- Snoring and Fatigue
- Inability to get enough air during activities
Traditional Nasal Obstruction Treatments
Home remedies for nasal airway obstruction include breathing strips, nasal dilators, and sprays that may work in the short term but will not provide a permanent solution.
You could choose traditional nasal surgery but it will involve pain, an extended recovery, and results that may not even be satisfactory.
It is a non-invasive procedure that is performed in our office. It does not involve any cutting or long recovery times. During the VIVAER® procedure, your nasal valve area is gently and permanently reshaped using radiofrequency energy. You will begin to experience noticeable improvement with your breathing immediately after treatment.
