Get Relief from Nasal Congestion – VivAer is a simple, non-invasive, and in-office procedure that takes less than 30-minutes to complete. We use low-energy radiofrequency to gently reshape your internal nasal valves to help you breathe better. It’s easy, inexpensive, and covered by most insurances. 97% of patients experienced significant improvement in nasal breathing.
How it works
With VivAer, your ENT physician will first apply local anesthesia to numb the inside of your nose and then insert a small wand into your nostril to precisely target and treat the blockage. The tip of the wand uses low-temperature radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently remodel your nasal passage to improve airflow. The treatment has minimal discomfort, and once it’s finished, you can typically get right back to your normal daily activities.
