What is Pro-Nox?

Pro-Nox is a 50/50 blend of oxygen and nitrous oxide analgesia, self-administered through a valve-activated mask or tube. This safe and effective device provides patients with comfort and pain relief during a host of different dermatological surgeries, cosmetic injections, and laser treatments. Our board-certified dermatologists usually recommend using Pro-Nox independently, or along with traditional local anesthetics for the most effective results. After a few deep breaths from the tube or mask, patients will immediately notice a sense of calm and relaxation, significantly reducing the pain and anxiety of surgical or cosmetic procedures. These effects will wear off in a matter of minutes. You can self-administer more doses when necessary. Furthermore, because Pro-Nox comes in small doses, patients are often able to resume their regular activities immediately after the procedure.

Benefits of Pro-Nox

Dr. Hellman and her expert New York medical team always put their patient’s safety first when considering different options for a treatment. While traditional anesthesiology utilizes potentially dangerous drugs, Pro-Nox is 100% opioid-free and is completely safe for patients. The risk of infection associated with traditional anesthesiology is also mitigated by using a state-of-the-art one-way valve system, blocking any potentially harmful germs that might enter the system. Along with the safety of the device, there are other benefits to Pro-Nox such as:

  • No recovery period or downtime
  • Instant relief of pain before and during a procedure
  • Customizable dosing administered by the patients themselves
  • Easy to use and affordable
  • A non-addictive alternative to opioid-based anesthesia
  • You can drive yourself home following the procedure

Am I a candidate?

Nearly everyone is a candidate for Pro-Nox during their treatment. While it is not an effective replacement for a licensed anesthesiologist during a complex surgery, Pro-Nox is perfect for most treatments we offer at our Central Park South, NYC office. The device is safe to use for both adults and children and is even commonly used for women in labor.
