Clarifix is a minimally invasive procedure designed to provide long-term relief for individuals suffering from chronic runny nose and/or congestion. If you suffer from these rhinitis symptoms and are wondering if Clarifix could help you, schedule a consultation with your NJ ENT doctor for an evaluation.
Rhinitis refers to the inflammation of the nasal passages, which can lead to a variety of bothersome symptoms. Common symptoms of rhinitis include nasal congestion or stuffiness, runny nose, sneezing, itching of the nose, postnasal drip, and frequent or persistent sneezing. Additionally, individuals with rhinitis may experience itching or watery eyes, coughing, sore throat, headaches, fatigue, and impaired sense of smell. These symptoms can significantly impact daily activities, sleep quality, and overall well-being. If you are experiencing persistent rhinitis symptoms consult with your NJ ENT doctor for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment options.
What is CLARIFIX®?
The Clarifix procedure utilizes cryotherapy, a technique that involves freezing specific nerves in the nasal passages to disrupt the signals responsible for excessive nasal drainage. During the Clarifix procedure, we insert a small catheter into the nasal cavity and deliver controlled cold therapy to the affected nerves. This targeted approach helps to reduce the inflammation and hyperactivity of the nasal lining, alleviating the bothersome symptoms associated with chronic rhinitis.
Benefits of CLARIFIX®
Some key benefits of Clarifix include:
- Long-term Relief: Clarifix provides long-lasting relief from chronic rhinitis symptoms by targeting the underlying cause. By freezing specific nerves in the nasal passages, it disrupts the signals responsible for excessive nasal drainage, reducing the symptoms associated with chronic rhinitis.
- Minimally Invasive: The Clarifix procedure is minimally invasive, meaning it involves only a small catheter inserted into the nasal cavity. It is performed in an outpatient setting, typically with local anesthesia, making it a convenient and relatively comfortable option for individuals seeking relief from chronic rhinitis.
- Improved Quality of Life: Chronic rhinitis symptoms can significantly impact daily activities, sleep quality, and overall well-being. Clarifix aims to alleviate these symptoms, providing individuals with improved quality of life and the ability to engage in activities without the constant burden of nasal drainage.
- Non-Drug Solution: Clarifix offers a non-drug alternative for managing chronic rhinitis. Some individuals may prefer this approach to avoid potential side effects or drug interactions associated with medications commonly used to treat rhinitis.
- Proven Effectiveness: Clarifix has been clinically proven to effectively reduce nasal drainage and improve symptoms in individuals with chronic rhinitis. It has demonstrated positive outcomes in studies and has been approved by regulatory authorities for use in the treatment of chronic rhinitis.
