Patient-controlled comfort and calm with PRO-NOX™

Many of the most effective and long-lasting cosmetic procedures are also the treatments that cause the most anxiety. In some cases, it’s because the procedure can cause discomfort or pain; in other cases, there might be a fear of needles or lasers or an expectation of pain that causes such apprehension. 

There is a wide range of anesthetics and techniques to ease pain and anxiety, but many of them carry their own set of risks and side effects, including long recovery times, grogginess, headaches or nausea.  

PRO-NOX™ offers short-term anesthetic relief directed by the patient, giving them control that helps alleviate anxiety. PRO-NOX™ uses a mix of nitrous oxide and oxygen that allows a patient to be fully relaxed and in control of their pain relief during cosmetic procedures.   

What is PRO-NOX™?

The PRO-NOX™ system delivers a 50% oxygen and a 50% nitrous oxide mixture that is inhaled by a patient to relieve pain and anxiety. It is commonly used during many medical and dental procedures and is safe for most patients.

Oxygen allows the patient to breathe normally, while the nitrous oxide induces feelings of relaxation and numbs pain receptors. Patients inhale the mixture of the two gases before the beginning of the procedure to trigger pain relief and minimize stress.

When a patient feels discomfort, they can inhale the gas mix for immediate pain and anxiety relief. The patient can then continue inhaling and getting pain relief as they need it for the duration of the procedure, at their comfort level.

What Are the Benefits of using PRO-NOX™?

Is there downtime after using PRO-NOX™?

Once PRO-NOX™ is discontinued, patients feel clear-headed and steady after a short time and typically have no long-term side effects. 

What are the side effects of PRO-NOX™?

After a procedure with PRO-NOX™, patients may experience some short-lived side effects, including headache, dizziness or nausea.
