ClariFix Minimally Invasive 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. ClariFix is an effective remedy for people dealing with chronic rhinitis offering significant relief.
What is Clarifix?
Clarifix is a minimally invasive procedure designed to provide long-lasting relief from nasal congestion caused by a condition called chronic rhinitis. Chronic rhinitis refers to the inflammation of the nasal passages, leading to persistent symptoms such as nasal congestion, postnasal drip, and sneezing. This condition can significantly impact your quality of life, affecting your ability to breathe freely and enjoy daily activities.
How Does Clarifix Work?
Clarifix utilizes a procedure known as cryotherapy, which involves the controlled cooling of specific nerves within the nasal passages. The goal of this treatment is to interrupt the overactive signals sent by these nerves, thereby reducing the inflammation and congestion associated with chronic rhinitis. By targeting the source of the problem, Clarifix offers a more targeted and effective solution compared to traditional medication-based approaches.
Treating Chronic Rhinitis Through Clarifix Procedure
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 hit with cold temperature, 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.
How The Clarifix Procedure Works
During the Clarifix procedure, a specialized applicator is used to deliver precise cooling to the targeted nerves within the nasal cavity. This applicator is inserted gently, and the cooling process is performed for a short duration. The treatment is typically well-tolerated, and local anesthesia is applied to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.
What Are The Benefits of Clarifix?
- Long-lasting relief: Many patients experience a significant reduction in nasal congestion that can last for months or even years.
- Minimally invasive: Clarifix is performed in an office setting and does not require any incisions or general anesthesia, resulting in a relatively quick recovery period.
- Enhanced quality of life: By effectively reducing nasal congestion, Clarifix can improve your ability to breathe freely, sleep better, and engage in daily activities without constant discomfort.
- Potential reduction in medication dependency: Some patients who undergo Clarifix may find that they require fewer nasal sprays, antihistamines, or other medications to manage their symptoms.
