Pro-NOX Anesthesia for Plastic Surgery Procedures – Ridgeland, MS
At Faces, PLLC in Ridgeland, MS, your comfort and safety are among our top priorities. We take pride in providing our patients with the highest standard of care available in the Jackson metro area. That’s why we are pleased to offer the Pro-NOX Nitrous Oxide System for pain relief and anxiety during surgical procedures in our clinic. When combined with oral sedation and supplemented by local anesthesia, Pro-NOX can offer our patients a safer and more comfortable surgical experience.
What is Pro-NOX Anesthesia?
The Pro-NOX System contains a blend of oxygen and nitrous oxide, a colorless, non-flammable gas. Nitrous oxide is usually more well known as “laughing gas.” For over a century, it has been used as a safe and effective method of pain relief during medical and dental procedures.
How is Pro-NOX Used During a Surgical Procedure?
The Pro-NOX System allows a patient to self-deliver the gas as needed to alleviate discomfort and any anxiety. Using a mouthpiece, the patient inhales the gas, quickly inducing a warm, euphoric feeling. The effects of nitrous oxide typically last between 3-5 minutes. The patient then continues to manage their own treatment by inhaling additional doses as needed.
What are the Benefits of Pro-NOX?
- Quick onset – taking effect within seconds
- Short duration of effect – clears from the body within minutes
- Easy to administer
- Empowers patients to respond to pain or anxiety as needed
- Can be safely used for the duration of a procedure
- Completely non-addictive
Can Pro-NOX Be Used with Other Procedures and Services?
At Faces, we understand more than anyone that people have different tolerances for discomfort. Sadly, the anxiety this causes may discourage some patients from considering the use of injectables, such as BOTOX® and fillers, as a means of achieving their aesthetic goals. Therefore, we do offer the addition of Pro-NOX during other procedures and services outside of the surgical setting.
If you are interested in trying Pro-NOX during your next injectable or skin resurfacing treatment, simply let us know when scheduling your appointment.
