Rhinitis affects 30 million Americans who suffer from a persistent runny nose, sinus infections, and many other troublesome symptoms. If you’re one of the many people who are suffering from concerns, from post-nasal drip to broken sleep, RhinAer may be an ideal treatment to provide long-lasting relief.
What is RhinAer?
The RhinAer device is a small, flexible tube device that emits low-temperature radiofrequency energy. This device is gently guided into your nasal passageway through a nostril. When it is in place, the radiofrequency energy is applied to the nerves in the back of the nasal passage. These nerves signal the nose to run, swell, itch, and manifest other symptoms. The radiofrequency energy targets the nerves alone, without impacting the surrounding tissues.
Am I a candidate for RhinAer treatments?
Men or women whose rhinitis symptoms do not respond to medication or other methods are candidates for RhinAer treatments. Candidates for RhinAer are experiencing any of the following chronic symptoms:
- Persistent runny nose
- Nasal itching
- Continual sneezing
- Post-nasal drip
- Chronic cough
- Nasal inflammation and swelling
- Nasal pain or pressure
- Persistent congestion
- Poor, broken sleep
What happens during the RhinAer procedure?
Your RhinAer procedure begins with local anesthesia to ensure the treatment is painless. Once the anesthesia has taken effect, your doctor will gently guide the RhinAer device through your nostril and into your nasal passageway. You may experience some minor discomfort during this short procedure.
The device, a small, flexible tube, will emit low-temperature radiofrequency energy that is applied to the nerve fibers at the back of your nose. These nerves are what trigger the persistent runny nose, congestion, inflammation, and other symptoms.
