Minimally Invasive Nasal Procedures
More than 24 million Americans suffer from frequent inflammation of the nose called chronic rhinitis.1 This can be caused by out of balance nasal nerves sending too many signals to the nose, telling it to drip, run and swell more than necessary. The nerves may be stimulated by allergens or irritants in the air, changes in weather, medications, certain foods, or chronic health conditions.2
The ClariFix® solution is the first and only FDA cleared device for adults with chronic rhinitis. ClariFix® cryotherapy goes to the root of the problem – the inflamed nasal lining and the underlying nerves – for lasting symptom relief.
The device delivers freezing cold temperatures to the out of balance nerves in the back of the nose, interrupting the signals and stopping the source of runny, stuffy nose symptoms.
A clinical study demonstrated a significant decrease in runny nose & congestion symptoms with 4 out of 5 patients reporting long-lasting relief after ClariFix® cryotherapy.3,4
The most common side effects associated with ClariFix cryotherapy are temporarily increased congestion and transient pain or discomfort.
