Pronox for painless cosmetic procedures is a safe and effective way to make your treatment more comfortable. Here’s what you should know!
What is PRO-NOX?
PRONOX is a pain relief system to help relieve anxiety and discomfort during cosmetic procedures. While a procedure may not necessarily be painful, it can still cause patients to feel anxious or uncomfortable.
Pronox is a patient-driven pain management system. It allows patient to be awake and comfortable using a mix of nitrous oxide and oxygen. Nitrous oxide, AKA laughing gas, has been used in the dental and medical industry for years.
Here are Cronin Dermatology, our number one concern is patient safety, comfort, and results. While we already use local anesthesia for minimally invasive procedures, PRONOX offers added comfort and anxiety relief.
How PRONOX Works
When your treatment begins, the provider will give you a mouthpiece. If, or when, you feel like you need it, you simply breathe through the mouthpiece until you are at a desired level of pain relief. You stay completely awake, but your discomfort and anxiety will drop significantly. Relief is instant, helping you feel relaxed and calm. This feeling will last a few minutes. then, you can repeat it as often as you want during your treatment.
Benefits of PRONOX
To begin with, it is FDA approved as an analgesic (pain relief) even though it is not classified as anesthesia. Furthermore, is nonaddictive, and since it doesn’t have lingering effects, you are free to drive yourself home after your procedure.
Nitrous oxide occurs naturally and acts as a weak anesthetic when inhaled. It has been safely used for over a century in surgical, childbirth, and dental procedures. Relief is nearly instant since the gas quickly enters your bloodstream and triggers a sedative effect. However, after a few breaths of normal air, it completely leaves your system. There are no lingering effects.
Another benefit is that a calm and relaxed patients can sit still better. This allows the provider to achieve the best results possible.
