What is ProNox?
Rather than offer our patients general anesthesia for their procedures, our practice is one of the only practices in the area that offers ProNox. This state of the art system delivers patients a mixture of 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide. Also known as laughing gas, ProNox is a patient-administered system that helps to relieve pain and anxiety during a variety of medical procedures, including the aesthetic procedures offered at Dr. Finder’s practice. Best of all, it begins working almost immediately, and there’s no downtime after you stop treatment!

Candidates for ProNox
ProNox has been safely administered to patients around the globe undergoing a variety of medical procedures for years. Because it’s an oxygen and nitrous oxide mixture and doesn’t deliver medication, it’s a very safe alternative to oral and IV anesthesia. Most patients at our practice who want to reduce discomfort and anxiety during their cosmetic procedure are candidates for ProNox.
How Does it Work?
The ProNox system is a portable machine that can be brought into your treatment room for your aesthetic procedure. It includes a tube that you place in your mouth. While inhaling through your mouth, the mixture of 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide will be delivered to you at your level of comfort. You can start and stop the delivery of the laughing gas by simply inserting or removing the tube in your mouth.
ProNox is proven to make patients feel more relaxed and comfortable for their procedures. The nickname “laughing gas” is used because the delivery of the oxygen and nitrous oxide mixture often makes patients feel so relaxed that they laugh, regardless of the procedure they are undergoing.
There is no downtime for ProNox. As soon as the patient stops inhaling the mixture, the effects wear off within minutes. You can schedule a cosmetic procedure with ProNox and then drive yourself home or back to work after your treatment is complete.
