Relaxing and Safe
What is Pro-Nox™
At Invigorate Advanced Aesthetics Patient satisfaction is our number one focus. As a result, we take patient comfort very seriously and offer Pronox in addition to traditional cosmetic numbing protocols. We want our patients to achieve the look they desire and don’t want them holding back because of fear or anxiety about pain. For this reason we offer PRO-NOX.
PRO-NOX is nitrous oxide, and it works much like the nitrous oxide that you get at the dentist’s office. This method of relaxing patients has been used for over a century and is completely safe.
At Invigorate Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa All you have to do is breathe normally into an inhalation tube, and the nitrous oxide quickly begins to take effect. A benefit of PRO-NOX is that you can control the amount of nitrous oxide you use. The amount you inhale is totally up to you, and you can easily change this amount as the procedure continues.
Unlike cosmetic surgery, there’s no downtime needed for wrinkle injections. You may go back to work and resume other activities as normal. However, be sure to avoid rubbing the site of your injections so that the active ingredients don’t spread and cause side effects. We suggest taking it easy over the next few hours, no working out, no vigorous exercise within 4 hours of treatment or laying flat.
Some patients report the injections feel like a pinch. You may notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours,
Neurotoxin injections are a temporary treatment. If you discontinue treatment the fine lines and wrinkles will gradually return.
The benefits of the split 50/50 mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen gases, take effect within seconds of inhaling the blend, providing increased comfort and reduced anxiety. These effects last for a few minutes at a time and can be extended by self-administering more of the mixture as needed. When using Pro-Nox, a patient breathes into the mouthpiece when needed. After administering, taking normal breaths allows the nitrous oxide to move out of the system quickly.
Effects wear off in 5-10 minutes. There is no trace of the chemical in the body. The short-lasting effects of Pro-Nox allow the patient to reap the benefits of an analgesic, while still being able to drive before and after an procedure. With Pro-Nox, patients now have the ability to respond to pain or discomfort on their own terms, without disrupting the rest of their day.
