Many patients experience extreme anxiety before or during a cosmetic procedure. Our team at FacesFirst Cosmetic Surgery want to help relieve our patients of any feelings of anxiety and make them feel comfortable during their procedure. That is why we are now using the Pro-Nox™ System.

What is the Pro-Nox™ System?

This Pro-Nox™ System is a medical nitrous oxide system that is completely administered by the patient for when they are feeling any pain or anxiety during the procedure. It is completely safe to use, and the effects wear off shortly. It contains 50% Nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen, helping you to feel pain and anxiety relief while giving you a sense of control.

How Does the Pro-Nox™ System Work?

This system is self-administered, much like some tools used in a dental office. A long tube is hooked up to the machine containing the nitrous oxide and oxygen when the patient is feeling any signs of pain or anxiety, they inhale the mixture from the tube and instantly feel relief. There are alarms on the machine that let you know when the gas is low as well as a safety shut off the system when the gas pressure is too low. This system has been helping patients with pain and anxiety for decades during all types of procedures.
