Nasal Airflow Resistance

  • Nasal valve is the narrowest area of nasal airway1
  • Most common site of nasal airway obstruction1
  • Accounts for 2/3 of nasal resistance1

Small Changes Make Large Improvements to
Nasal Breathing


Bernoulli’s Principle: Increase in airflow velocity leads to a decrease in pressure

Poiseuille’s Law: Airflow is proportional to the 4th power of the change in radius

Non-Invasive Treatment with VivAer

  • Single solution to treat lateral wall, turbinate and septal swell body 
  • Durably remodels soft tissue, including cartilage, in the nasal valve 
    • Increases the radius of the nasal valve to improve airflow 
    • Shrinks submucosal tissue of the inferior turbinate 
    • Reduces soft tissue obstruction on the septum 
  • Treatment does not alter patient aesthetics 

Clinically Proven Durable Results
and High Patient Satisfaction


Significant NOSE Survey Results in Prospective, Multicenter Study 2

  • 89% of patients reported improved sleep quality
  • 94% of patients reported improved ability to breathe through their nose during exercise or exertion
  • Improvements shown in patients with static and dynamic valve collapse

*97% Responder rate for ≥15 point improvement in NOSE Scale score over baseline at 2 years.

Which Patients Can Benefit Most From VivAer?


  • Patients who have a NOSE score >60 and experience improvement with the modified Cottle’s maneuver
  • Postsurgical patients who have undergone nasal obstruction surgery and still have difficulty breathing
  • Patients seeking a low-risk, effective, non-surgical option for front-line treatment
  • Adjunct to surgery patients who are candidates for traditional surgery (e.g., septum, turbinates) and respond well to modified Cottle’s maneuver
