ClariFix Frequently Asked Questions
What is ClariFix cryotherapy?
ClariFix® cryotherapy is a treatment that utilizes cold temperatures to stop the source of chronic rhinitis symptoms.
How does ClariFix work?
Chronic rhinitis symptoms are caused by out of balance nerves, which may be sending too many signals to your nose, telling it to drip, run and swell more than necessary. Using cryotherapy, the ClariFix® device delivers cold temperatures to these out of balance nerves in the back of the nose, interrupting the signals and reducing your symptoms.
How long until I will see an improvement?
Most patients begin to see improvement between 2 and 6 weeks post-treatment.
What kind of results can I expect from ClariFix Cryotherapy?
In a clinical study, patients reported a significant decrease in runny nose and nasal congestion with 4 out of 5 patients reporting long-lasting symptom relief.
How long does the treatment take?
You can typically expect to spend about an hour in our office.
What can I expect during the treatment?
Dr. Swerdlin will start by numbing the nose with anesthetic. The ClariFix® device is then placed in the back of the nose, and the cold therapy is applied.
Is there a downtime?
Most patients typically return to normal activity the same day. As with any nasal treatment, you may experience increased sensitivity, congestion, and some discomfort after the treatment.
