Nasal Airway Remodeling With VivAer®
Scotch Institute of Ear Nose & Throat in Wesley Chapel and Trinity, Florida, is pleased to offer VivAer®—a non-surgical, in-office nasal airway remodeling procedure that can provide lasting relief to individuals with chronic nasal obstruction. This progressive nasal obstruction treatment gently reshapes tissues and opens the inside of the nostril with low-energy radiofrequency heat, allowing patients to breathe more easily. VivAer does not require incisions and is associated with minimal discomfort, and patients can return to their daily routine immediately after treatment.
When Is Nasal Airway Remodeling Necessary?
Nasal congestion is an extremely common problem with multiple causes, but not all stuffy noses are the same. For some, nasal congestion is an everyday occurrence that results from an anatomical blockage. While nasal decongestants may offer temporary relief, chronic nasal obstruction can only be remedied when blocked nasal passageways are opened.
Nasal airway remodeling may be a viable treatment option for you if:
- You have trouble breathing during physical activity
- Your nasal congestion makes it difficult to for you to sleep
- Your nasal congestion negatively impacts your quality of life
- The Cottle’s maneuver improves your breathing (place two fingertips on each cheek near your nose and gently pull outward, opening the nasal passageways)
