Vivaer – Non-Invasive Nasal Remodelingdelreysinus
Del Rey Sinus & Allergy Institute is proud to announce the latest technology for people who suffer from nasal airway obstruction, which limits the airflow through the nose. It’s not easy to enjoy life when your nose is constantly blocked. Good sleep is next to impossible; vigorous exercise is out of the question. Your attitude is affected, and it feels like your health is at stake. Vivaer is a one-time non-invasive nasal remodeling procedure that can be performed in minutes in our Del Rey Sinus & Allergy Institute office by Dr. Farhad Sigari. Vivaer Nasal Airway Remodeling uses a low-temperature process that gently reshapes tissue of the nasal airway to help you breathe easier right away.
Nasal Airway Obstruction, also known as a congested or blocked nose, can dramatically impact the quality of the air you breath in. Chronic nasal congestion or stuffiness, persistent nasal blockage or obstruction, difficulty breathing through the nose, difficulty sleeping, snoring and fatigue, inability to get enough air during activities are all indicators that you might be experiencing a lower volume of air.
Clinical studies have shown significant improvement in nasal obstruction, symptoms, similar to more invasive surgical treatments.
Aerin Medical’s non-invasive Vivaer Nasal Airway Remodeling device, permanently addresses chronic nasal congestion without the need for surgery. This a quick outpatient procedure performed in our Del Rey Sinus & Allergy Institute office, in which radiofrequency energy is applied to cartilage using a wand that is inserted up the nose. This technology reshapes the internal nasal valve region, where your cartilage on the side of your nose meets your septum, changing its shape just a bit to open up the valve and improve airflow.
Our in-office CT Scanner is used to take images before and after the procedure, in order to see how the air flow through the nasal cavity is affected.
