Chronic rhinitis is inflammation of the nose which causes watery runny nose, nasal congestion, and post-nasal drip. Out-of-balance nerves in the nose are one of the major contributing factors to Chronic Rhinitis. When the nerves become overactive they cause the nasal lining to become inflamed and this increases mucus production.
Nasal sprays, pills, and allergy shots attempt to reduce the inflammation and nasal drainage; however, they require daily use, sometimes are ineffective, and can cause other side-effects.
Using cryotherapy, the ClariFix device can interrupt the signals and reduce your running and stuffy nose. 4 out of 5 patients report long term symptoms improvement.
ClariFix is a minimally invasive office procedure, performed under local anesthesia, and takes about 5-10 minutes. The majority of people have no pain the day of the procedure or afterwards. A small portion of people will develop headaches immediately after the procedure, which last only for 1-2 hours. Patients typically have increased nasal congestion 1-2 weeks. They will typically see improvement in 2-6 weeks post-treatment.
