How ClariFix Relieves Symptoms
To understand how ClariFix Cryotherapy works, it’s important to understand the underlying cause of your symptoms. Out-of-balance nerves may be sending too many signals to the nose, telling it to drip, run and swell more than necessary.
How Does ClariFix Cryotherapy Work?
The ClariFix Cryotherapy device goes straight to the source of the symptoms – the out-of-balance nerves.
Using a minimally-invasive treatment called ‘cryotherapy’, the ClariFix device interrupts the signals from these nerves to reduce your runny, stuffy nose symptoms.
When the cold temperature hits the out-of-balance nerves, the nerve signals are temporarily interrupted. The nerves are no longer telling the nose to drip, run and swell.
*Most patients begin to see improvement between 2 and 6 weeks post treatment.
Planning for Your Treatment
Know before you go
Prior to treatment, you should discuss any current medications you are taking as well as your medical history with your physician. Plan for a 1-hour appointment, and ask your physician if you will need someone to drive you home.
What to expect during the treatment
ClariFix Cryotherapy is typically performed right in your doctor’s office with only a local or topical anesthetic. The ClariFix device and an endoscope are placed into the back of your nose, where the out-of-balance nerves are located. The cold therapy is applied using a cooling probe and takes just a few minutes. You may feel slight pressure, a cooling sensation and some discomfort (though the treatment should not be painful).
What to expect after treatment
In general, there is minimal downtime and recovery. You may experience temporary increased congestion. Some discomfort is also possible, but will typically resolve the same day. Most patients begin to see improvement between 2 and 6 weeks post treatment.
ClariFix is safe
The most common side effects associated with ClariFix Cryotherapy are temporary increased congestion and transient pain or discomfort. In a clinical study, the ClariFix device was found to be well-tolerated with no device or procedure-related serious adverse events.6
