Pro-Nox is an advanced pain reducing method that can be inhaled by the patient during a procedure to relieve pain. This proven analgesic helps manage anxiety and pain during a cosmetic procedure at Advanced Dermatology. The effective combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen gas relieves pain fast without any complications or downtime afterward. Pro-Nox can be administered by inhaling through a mouthpiece at any time during a treatment. At Advanced Dermatology, with offices in New York and New Jersey, we want our patients to feel as comfortable as possible while helping them meet their cosmetic goals. Pro-Nox helps us increase our level of patient care.
Pro-Nox can be used during cosmetic treatments that may cause pain or discomfort, such as laser procedures, fillers, Botox or liposuction. Standard pain medication (analgesia) like numbing medicines or oral medication may have the disadvantage of downtime, side effects or a sedated feeling afterwards. Other pain-relieving methods such as numbing cream or ice packs may not reduce the pain sufficiently during treatment. The big advantage of Pro-Nox is that our patients have complete control over their pain because they can administer it themselves during the procedure. Another advantage is after using Pro-Nox patients can drive home, as it does not cause drowsiness. Pro-Nod is used in other medical fields as well, including during childbirth.
Cosmetic procedures can make you feel uncomfortable, anxious or in pain. With Pro-Nox you will have complete power over your pain. During treatment the Pro-Nox equipment will be by your side, ready to administer a perfect 50/50 blend of nitrous oxide and oxygen. When you need it, you can breathe into the Pro-Nox mouthpiece to instantly relieve any pain or discomfort. When you take a couple of breaths without the mouthpiece, the nitrous oxide will quickly move out of your system. This means that you can drive back home or to work after your treatment at one of our Advanced Dermatology practices in New York or New Jersey.
Pro-Nox has no drowsiness, “fuzzy feeling” side effects, or downtime associated with its use. Pro-Nox effectively relieves pain during a cosmetic procedure, but you will feel completely normal within 5 minutes after using it. This means you can drive your car or even go back to work after using Pro-Nox.
Pro-Nod has very few side-effects. During use, you can move and see normally. Some people feel slightly nauseous after use, but this can be easily eliminated by taking a few deep breaths of fresh air without the mouthpiece.
You can administer Pro-Nox at the start of the procedure to feel comfortable and relaxed. Pro-Nox pain relief works fast and should relieve discomfort within about 20 seconds. The analgesic effect wears off typically between 2 and 5 minutes after, leaving no residual effects. Depending on the limitations of the procedure, you should be able to drive home or return to work after using Pro-Nox for pain relief.
