For Dr. Kwak and his staff at his clinic in Manhattan, patient comfort is a priority. From the moment you walk into our office, we want you to feel comfortable and at ease. We make it our mission to invest in the latest technological and surgical advances, so we may provide the best experience to each person who walks into our Manhattan clinic.
The latest example of how we prioritize your comfort and care is our addition of the Pro-Nox nitrous oxide system to our facility. We understand that our patients may feel some anxiety before your aesthetic procedures. Now you can receive your favorite treatments in complete comfort with the assistance of Pro-Nox.Get Started
What is Pro-Nox?
Pro-Nox is a patient-controlled delivery system for nitrous oxide. Nitrous oxide is an analgesic that can be used to ease pain and provide comfort during procedures such as chemical peels, laser resurfacing, injections of dermal fillers, or microneedling. Unlike traditional anesthesia, Pro-Nox does not need to be administered by an anesthesiologist. Rather, you are the driver of the Pro-Nox system.
How is Pro-Nox Used?
Pro-Nox is administered through a mouthpiece and hose, allowing you to gently inhale nitrous oxide during treatment from Dr. Kwak. During its use, you hold the mouthpiece and hose allowing you to inhale as needed. Since you know your body and your threshold for pain better than any other person, this allows you to be in charge of how much nitrous oxide you receive. Your ability to control how and when you receive nitrous oxide with the Pro-Nox system is often enough to relieve anxiety and stress associated with aesthetic procedures at our clinic.
The Pro-Nox system is completely unlike the nitrous oxide you receive at your dentist’s office. During dental procedures, you do not have control over the amount of nitrous oxide you receive. Furthermore, the levels of nitrous oxide you receive at a dentist’s office qualify as anesthesia since they can reach levels of 70 percent.
The Pro-Nox system delivers a 50 percent nitrous oxide, 50 percent oxygen stream to be inhaled during times of discomfort or anxiety. With Pro-Nox, you have complete control over how much nitrous oxide you breathe in. Once inhalation has stopped, it only takes 10 minutes for the nitrous oxide to completely leave your system.
Why it is Beneficial
Pro-Nox allows you to administer nitrous oxide as needed during treatment to control pain or anxiety. Receiving aesthetic treatments can be free from psychological stress. This fast-acting form of administering nitrous oxide allows you to be in control of your comfort during treatment. There is no need to worry that you might fall asleep during the procedure. The Pro-Nox system allows you to be comfortable and pain-free during aesthetic procedures.
Am I a Candidate?
If you are seeking aesthetic enhancements but are worried about pain or increased anxiety during treatment at our Manhattan clinic, Pro-Nox can provide relaxation and ease for the duration of your treatment. It makes nervous patients able to undergo non-invasive procedures with greater comfort than ever before. There is no need to feel nervous about your treatment procedures as Pro-Nox can ease your nerves and allow you to receive treatment stress-free.
How Long Does it Last?
Unlike the nitrous oxide traditionally administered at a dentist’s office, this 50 percent nitrous oxide 50 percent oxygen mixture leaves the body just as quickly as it is delivered. You will be able to drive yourself both to and from your aesthetic appointment or resume your regular activities. Following your treatment, we simply ask that you wait 10 minutes to allow the nitrous oxide to leave your system. Then you are free to drive or any other normal activity.
As one of the safest methods of in-office sedation, nitrous oxide has been used in medical offices for decades. It works quickly to provide relaxation and is completely safe when used under the supervision of Dr. Kwak and his trained and qualified staff.
