How it Works:
How ClariFix Can Relieve Your Runny Nose
What is ClariFix®?
ClariFix® is an FDA approved, clinically-proven, minimally invasive cryotherapy tool that uses a cooling probe to freeze a small, inflamed area in the back of the nose. By freezing this tissue, ClariFix® helps relieve inflammation and interrupts the signals from the out-of-balance nerves that are causing your symptoms.
The process takes less than 5 minutes and can be performed in our office.
Does ClariFix® hurt?
No! ClariFix® is painless. We apply topical anesthetic to the inside of the nose before beginning the procedure. While the ClariFix® device is being used you may feel some slight pressure and a cooling sensation.
Occasionally, a patient may have a slight “ice cream headache” for a minute or so after the procedure. You can return to normal activity the same day.
Will I still need nasal medications after the surgery?
For most patients, ClariFix® completely eliminates or dramatically decreases the need for continued medications and nasal sprays. Of course, this can vary by patient, but clinical studies indicate that 4 out of 5 patients reported long-lasting relief of their chronic rhinitis symptoms. It usually takes between 2 and 6 weeks post-treatment to reach maximum improvement.
