ClariFix is the first and only FDA-approved medical device used to treat chronic rhinitis in adults. It helps treat runny/stuffy nose, nasal congestion, sore throat, and postnasal drip.

What Is Rhinitis?

Rhinitis is similar to hay fever but is caused by something other than an allergen. It produces cold-like symptoms that can make you feel miserable and worn down.
Symptoms of non-allergic rhinitis are similar to those you experience with a cold: runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, and postnasal drip. These conditions may occur indefinitely or come and go.

How Does ClariFix work?

ClariFix uses a treatment method called cryotherapy to reduce symptoms while addressing the root of the problem—the inflamed nasal tissue and underlying nerves.

The device delivers targeted cold temperature blasts to balance the nerves in the nose. Four out of five patients have seen long-lasting improvement.


  • How long will it take before my symptoms improve?
    Patients typically see improvement between two and four weeks after treatment.
  • Can I feel the device?
    Some patients report feeling slight nasal pressure, a cooling sensation around the nose, molars, and other mild discomforts.
  • Are there any side effects?
    The most common side effects are temporary worsening of congestion and brief pain or discomfort.
  • How long does treatment take?
    Most patients spend about an hour at the doctor’s office when getting ClariFix.
