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.
