What is RhinAer?

RhinAer is a minimally invasive procedure designed to treat chronic rhinitis with radiofrequency energy to modify the nasal nerves responsible for symptoms such as a chronic runny nose or congestion. RhinAer is a significant advancement in treating chronic rhinitis, promising a higher quality of life for those with this condition. With its innovative approach, minimal downtime, and lasting results, RhinAer stands out as a preferred treatment for those struggling with persistent nasal symptoms.

Chronic Rhinitis and RhinAer

Chronic rhinitis causes persistent symptoms like runny nose, sneezing, and nasal congestion, affecting millions globally. While various factors, including allergies and environmental triggers, can contribute to the overproduction of nasal discharge, the challenge has always been finding a lasting solution. RhinAer is a groundbreaking treatment option for those living with this problem.

The RhinAer Difference

RhinAer utilizes radio frequency to precisely target and ablate the posterior nasal nerves responsible for the overproduction of mucus and other chronic rhinitis symptoms. This outpatient procedure is quick, performed under local anesthesia, and requires minimal downtime. If you are looking for a treatment that will bring you real-world relief from chronic rhinitis, we urge you to speak with one of our ENT specialists at Southern ENT Associates about this option.

The entire process is quick, typically completed within a single visit, and patients can expect to resume their normal activities with minimal downtime, experiencing significant improvement in their symptoms.
