Pro-Nox Breathe Away Pain and Anxiety

 

The Pro-Nox Nitrous Oxide Delivery System empowers you to safely control your pain relief during in-office procedures.

 

The fixed mixture of 50% Nitrous Oxide and 50% Oxygen uses a specifically designed on-demand valve that only delivers the medical gases when you inhale. You manage when to use it and for how long while still being able to recognize and respond on your own terms. This diminished sensation to pain without loss of consciousness is also known as analgesia. 

 

The effects are typically felt within just a few breaths through a mouthpiece or mask offering immediate relief of pain and anxiety. No needles or pills. When the pain subsides, take a couple of normal breaths without the mouthpiece or mask and the N2O is expelled from your body quickly.

 

Is Nitrous Oxide safe?

The 50/50 mix of Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen has been used around the world for decades. Studies have shown that it is non-addictive and even decreases the need for other pain medication, like pills. This pain management alternative has been used in a variety of facilities including aesthetics, labor and delivery, orthopedics, plastic surgery, urology, dermatology, hospitals and surgery centers for many years.

 

How does Pro-Nox work?

The equipment is calibrated to ensure a perfect 50/50 blend delivered with each breath. Inhaled while holding your own mouthpiece or mask. Keep the mouthpiece or mask up to your face, or nearby, as directed by your provider. Breathing in and out will help relieve pain and anxiety.

 

Does Pro-Nox have side effects?

Some patients report nausea, but taking a few deep breaths without the mouthpiece or mask to your mouth should eliminate this feeling. 

 

Can I drive myself home after the procedure?

Yes! Effects from the Pro-Nox fade after approximately seven minutes by taking deep breaths without the mouthpiece or mask.

 

What treatments and procedures can I use Pro-Nox for?

Pro-Nox can be used as an add-on to any of your treatments or procedures. Examples of these would be filler, Botox, lasers, mole removals, and more! Call us with any questions about how Pro-Nox can make your next visit easy and painless!
