For some people, even the thought of a medical procedure is enough to make them anxious – and that includes the thought of a cosmetic procedure as well. We all have different tolerances for pain and anxiety, and if your tolerance is very low it is nothing to be embarrassed about. But if anxiety is stopping you from having a procedure done, you should know that Pro-Nox™ can help!
What is Pro-Nox?
Pro-Nox uses nitrous oxide, much like what is used at the dentist’s office. Nitrous oxide has been used for decades and is completely safe and very effective in alleviating pain and anxiety. But the one thing that separates Pro-Nox from other pain management techniques is that the patient gets to control it. You get to decide how much nitrous oxide you get, and you control it right as the procedure is ongoing. Pro-Nox is delivered through a disposable mouthpiece, and all you have to do is breathe normally. The amount you inhale is up to you, and you can inhale more or less as the procedure continues. Throughout the procedure, though, a medically trained staff member is there to supervise your use of Pro-Nox.
There are other benefits of Pro-Nox as well. It starts acting as soon as you start using it, but the effects wear off very quickly and patients can even drive home because there is no recovery time needed afterward. It is safe and FDA approved. You don’t have to worry about limiting food before your visit. There are very few patients who can’t use Pro-Nox; these include women in the first trimester of pregnancy, people with anemia and/or a vitamin B12 deficiency, and people who have extreme chronic fatigue. Side effects are very rare because the nitrous oxide leaves your system almost as soon as you stop using it. And, Pro-Nox can be used for any treatment.
