Injections are never enjoyable. But they’re a standard procedure for many medical spa treatments that involve Botox or other injectable fillers. As a result, many people dread coming in for treatments and may even avoid appointments altogether.
Pro-Nox takes the pain and fear out of minimally invasive procedures. It’s a self-administered nitrous oxide system that allows patients to manage their own pain and reduce anxiety levels during treatments.
What is Pro-Nox?
Pro-Nox is a 50/50 mixture of nitrous oxide gas and oxygen. Nitrous oxide is commonly known as laughing gas, but Pro-Nox uses a much lower ratio of nitrous oxide to oxygen than the laughing gas you may have experienced at the dentist. This means it’s safe for patients to administer themselves. It also doesn’t leave any lasting side effects.
Other oral pain medication or more powerful drugs can take several minutes to be effective and often take several hours to recover from. In contrast, Pro-Nox takes effect almost instantly and has no recovery period. So it’s a perfect option for those who need to get straight back to work or drive themselves home.
Do you want to avoid powerful medications, stay alert during procedures, and manage pain without lasting side effects? Then Pro-Nox may be the right option for you.
What is Pro-Nox Used For?
Pro-Nox is best suited to minimally-invasive procedures like Botox treatments, filler injections, PRP injectable treatments such as our PRP hair treatment or PRP face lift, our non-surgical Sculptra Butt Lift treatment, and much more. While these injections are not generally painful, some patients have an aversion to needles or may experience higher pain levels.
Others may simply be nervous about undergoing any sort of medical spa treatment. Whatever the reason, Pro-Nox can make any treatment a more relaxing, comfortable experience.
It can also be used during non-invasive treatments. For example, some patients experience discomfort during deep chemical peels, so Pro-Nox may be an appropriate option to relieve anxiety around the procedure.
How Does Pro-Nox Work?
The gas is administered through a hose with a disposable mouthpiece, which the patient can hold throughout the procedure. When a patient feels any anxiety, pain, or discomfort during the treatment, they can inhale the Pro-Nox gas to experience relief within seconds.
Since it’s a safe method of pain management without any lasting side effects, the patient is given complete control over their own comfort.
Once a patient breathes in the Pro-Nox gas, it quickly enters the bloodstream and induces a sedative effect within seconds. However, the effects of Pro-Nox go away almost as quickly as they come – typically only lasting between five to ten minutes. After that, the gas exits your body as you breathe in regular air. This makes it ideal for aesthetic treatments that don’t require long sessions or invasive procedures.
What Are the Benefits of Pro-Nox?
Pro-Nox offers several benefits compared to other pain management systems. Some of these benefits are:
- Instant effect. You can either use Pro-Nox just before treatment or whenever you experience discomfort. The sedative effect will kick in almost instantly.
- No lasting side effects. Since the gas mixture leaves your body within a few minutes, there are no long-term side effects. Furthermore, using Pro-Nox won’t extend your recovery time post-treatment, and you don’t need another person to drive you home.
- Reduces anxiety. You are in control. Having a pain management system at your fingertips puts your mind and body at ease.
- Affordable treatment. Compared to other systems, Pro-Nox is an affordable option.
- Simple delivery system. When you feel pain or discomfort, all you have to do is breathe through the mouthpiece. There are no extra needles involved, and you stay conscious throughout the procedure.
