Nasal Airway Remodeling

What is Nasal Airway Remodeling and Why Would I Need It?

There are millions of people who suffer from nasal airway obstruction, a condition that limits airflow through the nose and makes breathing difficult whether you are awake, asleep, at rest or performing activities where you exert yourself.

Living with a persistent nasal blockage leads to chronic congestion, snoring, fatigue, and the inability to enjoy an active lifestyle.  Nasal Airway Remodeling can be a solution for certain types of nasal obstruction. 2

What Causes Nasal Obstruction?

The nasal septum, lateral nasal wall, and nasal turbinates form a triangular area just inside your nose known as the Nasal Valve. If any of these structures is enlarged, the area in the nasal valve is reduced and incoming airflow is restricted. 1

Nasal Obstruction Treatment

Nasal obstruction has been treated in various ways over the years: 1

Nasal Valve Collapse

Ongoing Home Remedies
These include nasal dilators, nighttime breathing strips, and nasal sprays, some of which may not work, and none of which are a permanent solution.

Traditional Nasal Surgery
This is a radical treatment that is invasive and involves cutting and removing tissue, pain, and substantial recovery time.  The results are not always consistent, and sometimes even unsuccessful at solving the problems of blockage caused by narrowing at the nasal valve.

But now, you have a choice that can go beyond traditional treatment.It’s called VIVAER® Nasal Airway Remodeling

Benefits of VIVAER® Nasal Airway Remodeling

The VIVAER® procedure, performed in our office, is non-invasive, quick, and involves no cutting or general anesthesia.  Your nasal valve area is gently and permanently reshaped.  Immediately after treatment, you’ll begin to experience a noticeable improvement in nasal breathing. 1

Small Changes Make Large Improvements in Nasal Breathing 3

Because the nasal valve area is the site of more than two thirds of total nasal airflow resistance, changes to this valve area provide large improvements to airflow and nasal breathing.

Breathe Easier with a Better Solution3

The VIVAER® procedure makes treatment easier and more acceptable for a very large group of people.

  • There are no incisions – The procedure is performed by simply treating at the surface of the narrowed area.
  • There is no exterior change – The gentle, proprietary technique shrinks tissue, including cartilage, to relieve nasal obstruction without affecting the exterior appearance of the nose.

Proven Clinical Results2

Clinical studies have shown significant improvements in nasal airflow, patient evaluation of nasal obstructions symptoms, and quality of life similar to results of more invasive surgical treatments.
