Rhinaer Q & A

What is the RhinAer Stylus?

The RhinAer Stylus is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment for chronic rhinitis and postnasal drip. 

The board-certified ENTs at Ear, Nose & Throat Care, PC, are excited to offer this innovative in-office treatment to relieve your chronic rhinitis symptoms. It’s the only device for the treatment of postnasal drip. 

What is chronic rhinitis?

Chronic rhinitis affects the normal function of your nose. Symptoms include:

  • Nasal obstruction
  • Nasal congestion
  • Runny nose
  • Postnasal drip
  • Itchy nose
  • Sneezing

Though allergies are a common cause of chronic rhinitis, you can also develop the condition without a history of allergies. This is called nonallergic rhinitis.

Am I a good candidate for the RhinAer Stylus?

When you see the experts at Ear, Nose & Throat Care, PC, for help with your chronic rhinitis, they conduct a thorough evaluation to determine the best treatment. 

They may consider you a candidate for the Rhinear Stylus if your chronic rhinitis symptoms are moderate to severe, and you fail to get relief from traditional treatments. 

The RhinAer Stylus works for both allergic and nonallergic chronic rhinitis. The doctors at Ear, Nose & Throat Care, PC, also use the device on allergy patients who continue to experience drainage after completing their immunotherapy.

The ENT experts may also recommend the innovative procedure for functional endoscopic sinus surgery (FESS) patients who suffer from uncontrolled rhinitis.  

What happens during the RhinAer Stylus procedure?

Your ENT specialist at Ear, Nose & Throat Care, PC, performs the RhinAer Stylus procedure at the office under local anesthesia to minimize discomfort.

During the procedure, your provider inserts the RhinAer Stylus device into your nose and uses radiofrequency energy to disrupt the function of the posterior nasal nerve (PNN), which is the nerve that triggers your rhinitis.

The doctors at Ear, Nose & Throat Care, PC, monitor you at the office for at least an hour after the procedure before sending you home with post-procedure activity and care guidelines. 

Most patients experience a significant improvement in symptoms within six months after the procedure, and the results are long-term.
