Continue reading to learn all about PRO-NOX for pain-free cosmetic procedures, including how it works and treatment benefits.
What is PRO-NOX?
PRO-NOX is a gas system that delivers a combination of 50 percent oxygen and 50 percent nitrous oxide to alleviate pain and anxiety during cosmetic procedures.
In fact, PRO-NOX can be used during a wide variety of treatments including Ultherapy skin tightening, fractional skin resurfacing treatment, and small liposuction and fat transfer cases.
How Does PRO-NOX Work?
One of the key advantages of PRO-NOX is that it is patient administered. During treatment, patients control inhalation through a disposable mouthpiece that is connected to a hose.
PRO-NOX takes effect within seconds of inhalation – providing quick, safe, effective, and on-demand pain management for the duration of the procedure.
What Are the Benefits of PRO-NOX Analgesia?
PRO-NOX offers a number of advantages over other analgesia options.
To start, the oxygen and nitrous oxide combination clears the patient’s system within 10 minutes and allows them to drive home and return to normal activities right away.
What’s more, PRO-NOX leaves you clear-headed and avoids grogginess and fuzziness that are common with general anesthesia and oral pain medication.
Additionally, PRO-NOX is proven safe and effective; patient administered; and has a quick onset and short duration of effect. These benefits improve patient comfort and anxiety as well as increase patient and provider satisfaction.
Is There Any Downtime Associated with PRO-NOX?
There is absolutely no downtime with PRO-NOX, and patients will feel back to normal within 10 minutes.
