Vivaer Treatment fixes troubled nose breathing
  • Trouble breathing through your nose, feeling “blocked?”  
  • Nasal congestion “Stuffy” feeling?
  • Frequent mouth breather?
  • Fatigued during the day?
  • Struggle to breathe through your nose during exercise?


You may have a common and often undiagnosed condition called nasal airway obstruction, or NAO. While not being able to breathe fully through one nostril can seem like it's not that big of a deal, it can cause underlying health conditions. Over time, limited air intake through the nose can impact your quality of life and sleep, causing you to have less energy during the day. 


You don’t have to continue living your life with nasal obstruction.

  • Nasal breathing strips may help but look ridiculous at work and at the store.
  • Using decongestant nasal sprays longer than seven days can create complications.

Get lasting relief without sinus surgery.

How Does VivAer® Work?

Your Sinus & Nasal Specialists of Louisiana Rhinologist will first apply local anesthesia to numb the inside of your nose and then insert a small wand tip slightly into your nostril. The VivAer wand uses low RF energy to shrink excessive nasal tissue and permanently improve airflow. The quick office treatment creates minimal discomfort. You can typically get right back to your normal daily activities.

You don’t have to continue living your life with nasal obstruction!
