What is ClariFix Cryotherapy?
ClariFix Cryotherapy is a treatment that utilizes cold temperatures to stop the source of chronic rhinitis symptoms.
How does it 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. The ClariFix device uses cryotherapy to deliver 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?
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.7,8
How long does the treatment take?
Typically, you can expect to spend about an hour in your doctor’s office.
What can I expect during the treatment?
Typically, an anesthetic is used to numb the inside of your nose. Then, the ClariFix device is placed in the back of the nose and the cold therapy is applied. You may experience slight pressure, a cooling sensation in the nose and/or around the molars, or some discomfort during and/or after the treatment.
Does it hurt?
In a clinical study of 27 patients, the treatment was well-tolerated and patients reported an average pain rating of 1.19 on the Wong-Baker FACES pain scale (0 = minimum score, 5 = maximum score).8
Is there downtime?
Most patients return to their normal activity that same day. In general, there is minimal downtime and recovery. As with any nasal treatment, you may experience increased sensitivity, congestion, and some discomfort during the healing process.
What are the side effects?
