Millions of people suffer from nasal airway obstruction, which makes it difficult to breathe through the nose. Until now, your only options were medications or breathing strips that offer temporary relief, and surgeries that are invasive, painful, and often have a long recovery period. Vivaer® Nasal Airway Remodeling is a treatment that can be performed in your ENT physician’s office or clinic to help you breathe more easily.

No Incisions

Controlled energy to targeted areas to shrink and reduce tissue inside the nose to improve breathing.

In-Office Procedure

Procedure can be performed in a physician’s office under local anesthesia in 30 minutes or less with minimal disruption to a person’s schedule.

Clinically Proven Results

Clinical studies have demonstrated 94% of patients breathe better with associated significant improvements in nasal airflow, NOSE scores (Nasal Obstruction Symptom Evaluation), and quality of life.
