WHAT IS PRO-NOX?
Many are familiar with “laughing gas” from decades of use with dental procedures. Pro-Nox then became very popular in Labor & Delivery and Birthing Centers across the country and it is now moving into the Aesthetic world.
This self-administered system allows patients to breathe in a safe, low dose mixtur of 50% Nitrous Oxide and 50% Oxygen at our office before their procedure. It takes only minutes to kick in as the nitrous oxide dulls the brain’s pain receptors, which is calming, relaxing, and stress-free. Instant relief from pain means narcotics are not needed and patients can drive themselves home from office procedures.
