Do you have trouble breathing through your nose and often feel congested? Are breathing strips needed to open up your nasal airway so that you can breathe normally? You may be suffering from nasal blockage. VivAer is an in-office, non-invasive procedure to treat this frustrating problem.

Nasal Reshaping Technology

This simple, non-invasive, in-office procedure takes only 15 minutes. Most patients experience immediate relief from nasal congestion and can return to work the same day.

What Is VivAer?

The VivAer procedure uses temperature-controlled radiofrequency (RF) technology for the treatment of nasal obstruction. By treating the narrowest parts of your nasal airway, the VivAer procedure opens up the nasal passage to allow more air in. The VivAer procedure is intended to help patients suffering from nasal obstruction, often caused by an anatomical blockage in the nose and hindering airflow. 

Who can this procedure help?

People who have difficulty breathing through their nose and feel like they “aren’t getting enough air.”
