Vivaer Procedure

Dr. Johnson will apply local anesthesia on cotton balls to numb the inside of the nose, making the procedure virtually painless. The VivAer Procedure uses cutting-edge technology in the office setting and does not require any incisions. The inside of the nose is gently reshaped using low-temperature radiofrequency energy without altering the outward appearance of the nose. This significantly reduces nasal congestion within weeks and the patient will benefit from long-lasting results. More than 90% of Dr. Johnson's patients report a significant improvement in their nasal breathing in about four weeks.
