Treating Rhinitis Through Clarifix Procedure
Approximately 24 million Americans suffer from a constant runny nose, continuous sneezing and congestion. Patients suffering from such symptoms of chronic rhinitis are usually prescribed medications, nasal sprays, and solutions. Unfortunately, none of these options provide any lasting relief.
The Clarifix procedure is an innovative, minimally invasive, and FDA-approved treatment to freeze an inflamed area at the back of the nose that contains the nerves to mucus-producing glands. These out-of-balance nerves signal mucus-producing glands to release more mucus, causing symptoms such as runny nose and sneezing. With the help of a small handheld device that has a cryotherapy balloon, the out-of-balance nerves are treated with freezing temperatures, as low as minus 60 degrees. Freezing those nerves disrupts their ability to make mucus. The best part of the procedure is that it works well on allergic and non-allergic patients with equally good results.
