VivAer® Treatment

It's time to breathe easy.

The non-invasive VivAer treatment can help if you persistently experience:

Trouble breathing through your nose

Nasal congestion

Difficulty sleeping

Challenges breathing during exercise

The Clear Choice for Clearing Nasal Blockage

If you have nasal obstruction, finding a long-term solution often meant invasive surgery or continued use of medications. Now Dr. McGraw-Wall can offer you significant, lasting relief with the VivAer treatment.

VivAer uses low-temperature radiofrequency technology to gently remodel your nasal passage and improve airflow. By precisely targeting the source of the nasal blockage, VivAer has been clinically demonstrated to help patients breathe better and improve their quality of life. This treatment is performed right in our office, and patients typically return to normal activities on the same day.

“The sleep alone was incredible after the VivAer. My breathing has improved dramatically. I have more energy. I am more awake in the morning. I’m more focused in the morning when I’m working out. Breathing is easier. I have more air in my lungs... It was a great experience for my entire physical and mental health.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How does VivAer work?

Nasal obstruction is caused by an anatomical narrowing or blockage in the nasal airway that can hinder airflow and make it feel difficult to breathe through your nose. 

Using low-temperature radiofrequency technology, VivAer gently remodels the nasal passage, precisely targeting the narrowing or blockage, to improve airflow. The treatment has minimal discomfort, and once it’s finished, you can typically get right back to your normal activities.
