Pronox Q&A

What is PRO-NOX?

PRO-NOX is an inhaled analgesia that you control to ease treatment-related fears. The quick, effective gas system delivers a combination of 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide. 

This combination is commonly known as laughing gas. Breathing in this mixture won’t necessarily make you break into laughter, but it can ease your anxiety and discomfort during treatment at Excel Medicine. 

PRO-NOX is available for a wide variety of procedures and can even be an alternative to general anesthesia in certain cases. Sometimes PRO-NOX is combined with a topical anesthetic to maximize your comfort. 

What procedures use PRO-NOX?

PRO-NOX is available for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures at Excel Medicine. You might want to opt for PRO-NOX if you’re having any of these treatments:

  • Filler injections
  • Botox® injections
  • SculpSure®
  • Laser wrinkle reduction
  • Microneedling
  • Laser hair removal
  • Vampire Facial® 

Talk to your Excel Medicine provider about whether PRO-NOX is appropriate for your treatment.

Why opt for PRO-NOX?

You might be interested in a certain treatment, but you’re nervous because you’re afraid of needles, you don’t like going to the doctor, or you’re worried your procedure will be painful. PRO-NOX eases these fears and others. 

Because you control the gas, you experience a sense of empowerment. You have control over your level of relaxation or alertness. 

PRO-NOX also may be an alternative to general anesthesia for specific procedures. Talk to your Excel Medicine provider about this option, which may save you the expense, inconvenience, and downtime of general anesthesia. 

How do I control PRO-NOX?

You inhale the gas mixture with a hand-held tubelike mouthpiece. It’s simple to use and doesn’t make you fall asleep. 

During the procedure, you take several breaths from the tube and experience the relaxing effects within seconds. In this way, you regulate your degree of relaxation to tailor it to your needs, easing any potential discomfort or nervousness. 

How long does PRO-NOX last?

The effects of PRO-NOX are quick but not lasting. The results of the gas should wear off right away, and you can drive yourself to your procedure at Excel Medicine and back home afterward. PRO-NOX doesn’t limit your activities the way general anesthesia can.
