Do you suffer from rhinitis? You may be able to find relief with ClariFix® treatments at Bakersfield Sinus Center. We offer this effective treatment to patients living in Bakersfield, Porterville, CA and nearby cities.
What is ClariFix®?
ClariFix® is a minimally invasive cryotherapy treatment that is designed to relieve symptoms of rhinitis. Rhinitis and its symptoms are linked to nerve activity, which trigger inflammation and a runny nose as if you were fighting an infection. Of course, if you are affected by rhinitis, you are not sick – you just have to suffer from these symptoms! ClariFix® targets the nerves that trigger these symptoms in order to provide patients with long-lasting and effective relief.
Why Choose Satish R. Vadapalli, MD for Your ClariFix®?
Dr. Vadapalli specializes in procedures involving the nose and the surrounding areas of the face. With this expertise, he is an ideal candidate for performing ClariFix® and related procedures. No matter what treatment you are receiving, you can always expect the attentive and personalized care for which we are known.
What is the ClariFix® Treatment Like?
The ClariFix® treatment is performed in-office with either a local or topical anesthetic. Since it’s a minimally invasive treatment, you can expect to be comfortable for the duration of the procedure. As treatment begins, the ClariFix® device will be inserted into the nose until it reaches the nerves that are responsible for rhinitis symptoms. At this point, the ClariFix® device will emit cooling energy that blocks nerve signals in the treated area. You may feel a cold sensation during this process, but it is not a painful treatment. A typical ClariFix® treatment takes about 30 minutes to complete.
What is the ClariFix® Recovery Like?
After your ClariFix® treatment, you will be able to return home without any significant side effects. Depending on the type of anesthesia used, you may need somebody to drive you home. Most patients only experience increased congestion and minor discomfort, which tend to fade within a day or two of treatment.
What Results Can I Expect from ClariFix®?
You will begin to notice the benefits of your treatment within a few weeks. You can expect a reduction in nose running and congestion as these results become evident. Most patients enjoy long-lasting relief from their rhinitis symptoms, with results lasting for several months or longer. If your symptoms should return, ClariFix® treatments can be repeated in order to extend the duration of your results.
