In-Office VIVAER® Nasal Airway Remodeling

  • Do not pinch or manipulate treatment area.
  • Use nasal saline spray, 2 sprays in each nostril as needed. This spray can be used at any time to help moisturize your nose. Try to use it at least 4 times a day for a few days for improved healing.
  • Use the Bactroban® ointment in the morning and at night after the above routine. Apply a small amount to a Q-tip and apply just inside nostril, moving in a circular motion.
  • If you need to sneeze, sneeze with your mouth open.
  • If you need to blow your nose, do so gently until your follow-up.
  • If you have a nosebleed, saturate a cotton ball with Afrin® and then place it snugly in the bleeding nostril. Leave it in place for 30 minutes and then gently remove it.
  • If you have any difficulty breathing through your nose, you can use Afrin, 1 spray in each nostril for a total of 5 days.
  • For the first 3-4 days after the procedure, you may use Tylenol® or ibuprofen every 4 hours for pain while awake.
