Salzman Cosmetic Surgery is proud to be the very first physician’s office in Kentucky to implement Pro-Nox™ to its aesthetic plastic surgery practice. Pro-Nox™ is a novel system that delivers a 50% mixture of Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oxygen through a patient controlled inhalational mouthpiece. This mixture of gases is used to provide anxiety and pain relief from commonly performed in office cosmetic procedures. Pro-Nox™ can be used in cosmetic procedures such as lasers, micro needling devices, tattoo removal, injectables, laser liposuction, Kybella™ and many others. Just about any procedure we do in our cosmetic practice in which there can be some discomfort or anxiety can be made more comfortable by using the Pro-Nox™ system. This 50% mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen has been proven safe and effective and has been used by dentists and obstetricians for decades. The patient administers the gas under their control by simply breathing in with the device inside the lips. The onset is within seconds thereby providing immediate relief. The effect is of short duration and is out of the body within minutes. This will eliminate in some patients the need for oral anxiolytic medications such as Valium. The patient can then drive themselves both to and from the appointment. We think this will drastically improve our patient experience for many of the procedures done for aesthetic improvement in the Salzman cosmetic surgery and spa office. Should you have any questions about Pro-Nox™ please call the office and speak to one of our associates.
