Forget No-Pain, No-Gain with Pro-Nox
Radiance is proud to offer our patients a safe, effective method – inhaled nitrous oxide — for controlling anxiety and pain sometimes associated with cosmetic treatments.
Pro-Nox delivers a patient-controlled amount of 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide that works in seconds and leaves the body in minutes, enabling the patient to transport herself or himself home safely.
Our patients love that they can control when and how much to breath in, thus avoiding longer-lasting narcotic pain medications that can interfere with activities the rest of their day.
FAQ’s About Pro-Nox:
Which treatments can I use Pro-Nox with? Virtually any that you wish to but especially liposuction, Co2 laser, laser hair-removal, microneedling, hair PRP, liquid facelifts, profound laser treatments and Injectables of all kinds.
Will I be able to drive home afterwards? Depending on the length of your Pro-Nox use, you may be asked to remain at Radiance for a few extra minutes. Pro-Nox usually leaves your tissues in 15 minutes or less, and you can easily and safely drive home.
Is Pro-Nox safe? How long has it been in use? Pro-Nox has been used around the world for years in labor and delivery. It is NOT the same concentration – 70% nitrous oxide — used at your dentist’s office. Because you hold and control the inhaler yourself, you cannot inhale too much.
Will there be a fee for using Pro-Nox? In our more-extensive procedures like liposuction, Co2 and a laser hair-removal series, Pro-Nox is complimentary. For injectables like fillers and less-complicated procedures, there is a nominal fee for its use.
What are the side effects of Pro-Nox? For some people, minor side effects can include euphoria, transient nausea, dizziness or headache. In rare instances, hallucinations or rapid heart rate can occur. These effects are usually of short duration after treatment and wear off quickly once Pro-Nox is discontinued.
Is there anyone who should not use Pro-Nox? You should not use Pro-Nox if you have a history of substance abuse or mental health problems, are in the first trimester of pregnancy, have a history of COPD or other respiratory illness, have a current deficiency of B12, or have methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase deficiency (elevated homocysteine levels).
