The PRO-NOX Nitrous Oxide Delivery System is an innovative type of gas anesthesia developed to make cosmetic procedures more comfortable. The system is pneumatically driven and provides a mixture of 50 percent nitrous oxide and 50 percent oxygen to provide relief from pain or anxiety during an aesthetic treatment.
What is PRO-NOX?
PRO-NOX is a pain management system that you control – and only you know the actual level of discomfort you feel. The delivery system safely provides a nitrous oxide mixture through a handheld mouthpiece to ensure total comfort during your cosmetic procedure. Unlike traditional anesthesia, PRO-NOX does not need to be administered by an anesthesiologist, and you are in control of the amount you need during your treatment.
How is this better than others?
One of the benefits of PRO-NOX over other pain management solutions is that you are the one in control, not someone else. Since every person reacts differently, only you are aware of the amount of nitrous oxide mixture needed for your comfort. PRO-NOX allows you to increase or reduce the amount of relaxing, pain-reducing gas you inhale, based on how you feel.
Are there any side effects?
Since the gas mixture clears quickly from your system, the side effects are minimal. You may experience a slight headache, dizziness, or nausea, but most people experience zero side effects and are ready to go back to their usual activities within minutes.
Am I a candidate?
PRO-NOX is a good option for almost anyone. If you have wanted to undergo certain aesthetic procedures but have been worried about your tolerance for pain or that you may become anxious during the treatment, PRO-NOX can offer relaxation and comfort for the duration of your procedure. If you have any pre-existing medical conditions, talk to Dr. Cerni to make sure PRO-NOX is right for you.
