Pro-Nox for Cosmetic Procedures
Breathe away pain and Anxiety with PRO-NOX (TM)
What is Pro-Nox?
The Pro-NoxTM Nitrous Oxide Delivery System empowers you to safely control your pain relief during any medical procedure.
The fixed mixture of 50% Nitrous Oxide (N2O) and 50% Oxygen (O2) uses a specially 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.
How does Pro-NoxTM work?
The equipment is calibrated to ensure a perfect 50/50 blend delivered with each breath. Inhale 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-NoxTM have side effects?
Some patients report nausea, but taking a few deep breaths without the mouthpiece or mask to your mouth will eliminate this feeling. Speak to your provider about any contraindications.
Do I breathe from the Pro-NoxTM during the entire procedure?
No, breathe from the system as you need it for relief or as directed by your provider.
Are there any special preparations to use the Pro-NoxTM?
No, there is nothing you need to do prior to, or in preparation of, using the system.
Can I drive myself home after the procedure?
Yes, unless directed otherwise by your provider. The N2O effects subside in a few minutes of breathing without the mouthpiece or mask.
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.
How is recovery after using Pro-Nox?
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 breaths without the mouthpiece or mask and the N2O is expelled from your body within a few minutes so you can drive yourself home.
