What is Pro-Nox?

With Pro-Nox, patients self-administer Nitrous Oxide (laughing gas) through a mouthpiece to help reduce anxiety and discomfort during an aesthetic procedure. Patients are in control and can minimize the intensity of their sessions as needed.

How does Pro-Nox work?

The patient simply holds the device in their mouth and breathes in until they achieve the level of comfort and relaxation they desire. Patients remain conscious and aware; however, they feel more peaceful and at ease during their treatment.

Benefits of Pro-Nox

  • Takes effect immediately
  • Can be undergone before or during a session
  • The N2O is flushed out of the body within minutes
  • Patients can resume their normal activities within 10-15 minutes

What is nitrous oxide? Is it safe?

Nitrous Oxide (N2O) is a naturally occurring gas used during non-invasive aesthetic procedures that can help patients to feel more relaxed and less prone to anxiety. This weak, inhalable anesthetic has been used for over a century in the medical community and is better known as “laughing gas.” Once the gas enters the bloodstream, it acts as a mild sedative to help patients feel at ease during their procedure. Since the gas does not bind with hemoglobin or transform any cells, it can be quickly flushed from the body after a few breaths. This positions Pro-Nox as an excellent alternative to oral pain medications that can impair driving ability and delay a return to normal activities.

Who is a good candidate for Pro-Nox?

Pro-Nox is a good option for patients who desire a simple pain management system that can help them undergo their chosen procedures with minimal anxiety or distress. It can be used in combination with other pain management solutions or for those who are not able to make use of injectable or topical numbing agents. Note that Pro-Nox is contraindicated for those who are pregnant, those with hypersensitivity to Nitrous Oxide, those experiencing decompression sickness, or those with ear blockages or infections.
