PRO-NOX: The Relief You Need Before Undergoing Aesthetic Treatments

If you’re about to undergo an uncomfortable aesthetic treatment, such as a chemical peel or injectable fillers, you can take advantage of the PRO-NOX™ system to relieve pain and anxiety.

At Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics, board-certified dermatologist David A. Bushore, MD, offers the PRO-NOX system to help you relax and stay comfortable throughout a variety of aesthetic treatments.

How PRO-NOX works for pain and anxiety

The PRO-NOX system delivers a 50/50 mix of oxygen and nitrous oxide to your body to quickly relieve pain and keep you calm and relaxed during a nonsurgical aesthetic procedure.

Nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, has been used in a wide range of medical settings as a mild sedative. The analgesic takes effect after just a few breaths and clears completely in just a few minutes.

The system is safe and easy to use. The biggest benefit of the PRO-NOX nitrous oxide system is that you control how much gas you receive. Patients often ask, “Is it on?” This is because it doesn’t make any noise. The gas is only delivered when you put the mouthpiece to your mouth and inhale. According to one patient, “It’s like a hooka.”

The PRO-NOX system is completely quiet until you hear your inhaled breath through the tubing, because there’s no plug or moving parts.

What to expect during your aesthetic treatment

If you’ve been putting off aesthetic treatments ― such as injectable fillers, botox cosmetic injections, or deep chemical peels ― because of pain or discomfort, you can now rely on the anesthetic benefits of the PRO-NOX system for use during your procedure.

The aesthetic team at Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics will make sure you know how to use the PRO-NOX system prior to the start of your procedure. 

Whenever you feel pain or anxiety, you’ll just inhale the gas, and enjoy the full benefit of the gas within seconds. There are no needles with the PRO-NOX system, and you can continue using the system for the duration of your procedure to keep you relaxed and pain-free.

No downtime is needed

After using the PRO-NOX system, you can even drive yourself home. And you aren't required to limit any of your other activities following your treatment.

The nitrous oxide used by the PRO-NOX system will leave your body within minutes of your last use.

Additionally, the Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics team will provide you with your own mouthpiece to use during your procedure and future treatments.

PRO-NOX makes it easy to undergo the aesthetic treatments you’ve been thinking about without fear or pain. The Balcones Dermatology & Aesthetics team will work with you every step of the way to ensure that you use the PRO-NOX system safely and that through your aesthetic procedure, you can be comfortable as possible.
