How does VivAer work?
With VivAer, Dr. Lapco will first apply local anesthesia to numb the inside of your nose, then insert a small wand into your nostril to precisely target and treat the blockage. The tip of the wand uses low-temperature radiofrequency energy to gently remodel your nasal passage to improve airflow. The treatment has minimal discomfort and once it's finished, you can typically get right back to your normal daily activities.
