Discomfort is one of the most common hindrances for patients seeking laser treatments. At Capital Laser & Skin Care, we offer patient-controlled PRO-NOX™ treatments for optimal comfort throughout your procedure. Men and women no longer need to feel apprehensive about undergoing the procedure they want.
PRO-NOX™: What Is It?
PRO-NOX™ is a pneumatically-driven gas system that has been used in delivery rooms for decades to minimize pain, anxiety, and awareness. PRO-NOX™ is non-addictive and has no adverse come-down effects. It’s comprised of 50% oxygen and a 50% nitrous oxide mixture that works within seconds to relieve discomfort.
PRO-NOX™: Less Preparation
Unlike general anesthesia, PRO-NOX™ does not have a long list of pre-appointment instructions. Patients can simply show up to their in-office procedure without dietary or other restrictions beforehand. We’re able to increase patient comfort without the need for extensive protocol.
PRO-NOX™: Maximum Patient Comfort
PRO-NOX™ provides pain and anxiety relief during aesthetic procedures such as laser treatments. It’s patient-driven giving you the ability to control comfort levels throughout the entire procedure. All patients have to do is inhale. PRO-NOX™ takes effect within seconds instantly minimizing awareness. Get the most out of more aggressive treatments that would otherwise not be tolerable without general anesthesia.
PRO-NOX™: Less Downtime
There are no hangover effects associated with PRO-NOX™. PRO-NOX™ will be out of your system within 10-minutes. Patients can drive themselves home after their treatment and go about normal routines without feeling dizzy or nauseous.
PRO-NOX™: Is It Right for You?
