Metro Atlanta Treatment for Sinus Conditions
Let Us Help You Find Lasting Relief in Metro Atlanta
At the Center for Allergy and Asthma of Georgia, our highly experienced team specializes in treating not only asthma, allergies, and other pulmonary conditions, but also in treating sinus conditions. Sinus conditions are often caused by an allergic reaction or a recent upper respiratory illness, and typically produce symptoms similar to the common cold.
Our highly trained specialists at the Center for Allergy and Asthma of Georgia work closely with patients to determine the underlying cause of their sinus conditions, and develop a treatment plan that suits their needs. In our Metro Atlanta offices, we treat many sinus conditions, including:
- Sinusitis - We treat severe infections caused by inflammation of the sinus and nasal cavities, and determine the cause of sinusitis.
- Sinus Headaches - We offer relief from excessive pressure in the sinus and nasal cavities, which causes extreme sinus headaches.
- Chronic Sinus Infections - Our board-certified doctors determine underlying causes for chronic sinus infections, and offer individualized treatment plans.
In June 2019, the FDA approved Dupixent® (dupilumab) to be used for the treatment of moderate to severe asthma and pediatric eczema with chronic sinusitis. This type of medication works by blocking a protein called an interleukin from binding to cell receptors, which contributes to a well-working and functioning immune system. Dupixent combats harmful bacterial viruses found inside our bodies and is administered once a week as an injection under the skin. You will need to be monitored by our specialists during your first hour to ensure no complications. Click here to learn more about Biologic Treatments.
Immunotherapy Can Bring Relief to Your Sinus Problems
Our allergy shot (immunotherapy) program can provide you with lasting relief from sinus infections, year-round and seasonal allergies, and reduce problems related to allergic asthma. Immunotherapy can be highly advantageous for relieving some of the worst symptoms related to your allergies, including sinus problems.
Our patients can expect to experience an 80-90% reduction in:
- Sinus infections
- Allergy symptoms--year-round and seasonal
- Sick visits for allergic illnesses
- Missed work or school
- Asthma problems and need for medications
How is this possible? Immunotherapy gradually introduces the allergens into your system, acting almost like a vaccination. You and your allergist will work out a schedule to receive your shots, which may depend on how your body responds to treatment. Ultimately, the goal is to get your body used to the allergen that you will no longer be affected by it if you come into contact or breathe in the allergen in the future. If you are interested in seeing how well immunotherapy can work for you, do not hesitate to visit our Georgia allergy center! Let us get you well, and keep you free from allergy related problems.
How long does it take for immunotherapy to show results for sinus problems?
The timeframe for noticing improvements with immunotherapy for sinus problems varies among individuals. Some patients may experience relief within a few months, while others might require a year or longer to observe significant benefits. Consistent adherence to the treatment plan is essential, and regular follow-ups with our Metro Atlanta allergy and asthma specialists can help monitor progress and adjust the therapy as needed.
