Do you regularly feel like you can’t breathe easily through your nose? Maybe it’s affecting your sleep quality, or you find it hard to exercise. If so, you may have a common and often undiagnosed condition called nasal valve insufficiency.

Common Symptoms Include:

  • Trouble breathing through your nose, or a “blocked” feeling
  • Nasal congestion
  • Difficulty sleeping, leading to fatigue
  • Struggling to breathe through your nose during exercise
  • Frequent “mouth breathing”

How VivAer Works

Your physician will first apply local anesthesia to numb the inside of your nose and then insert a small wand into your nostril to target and treat the blockage precisely. 

The wand's tip uses low-temperature radiofrequency (RF) energy to gently remodel your nasal passage and improve airflow. 

The treatment has minimal discomfort, and once it’s finished, you can typically get right back to your normal daily activities.
