VivAer® Treatment for Nasal Obstruction in Auburn, WA

What is nasal obstruction?

Nasal obstruction is often caused by anatomical blockage in the nose, hindering airflow. As a result, you may feel congested or “stuffy”. Other symptoms include difficulty breathing through the nose, habitual snoring, interrupted sleep, and fatigue. Home remedies and medications may offer temporary relief. It’s only when your nasal airway is opened that you can expect to find real, lasting relief.

Common symptoms of nasal obstruction:

  • Trouble breathing through your nose
  • Nasal congestion
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Difficulty breathing during physical exertion
