Planning to undergo a cosmetic procedure can still induce feelings of anxiety, especially when there is a possibility of experiencing discomfort. Southwest Plastic Surgery is thrilled to offer patients PRO-NOX™ sedation services to alleviate the worries associated with their upcoming MedSpa treatment. PRO-NOX™ is a safe and effective pain management technology that is designed to improve a patient’s experience during minimally invasive procedures. By opting for sedation during a MedSpa treatment, patients can enjoy stunning rejuvenation and enhancement results without fear.
PRO-NOX™ is a patient-controlled pain and anxiety management system that can make nearly any cosmetic procedure comfortable and relaxing. This advanced technology allows patients to undergo many different types of treatments without worry or discomfort. During your consultation at Southwest Plastic Surgery, Dr. Agullo will evaluate your needs and review your medical history before determining if sedation with PRO-NOX™ is right for you.
PRO-NOX™ is a 50:50 mix of nitrous oxide and oxygen that is administered through a mouthpiece. You can control the delivery yourself, and the analgesic effects are immediate. Once you are completely relaxed and ready for your treatment, your chosen procedure can begin.
Unlike general anesthesia, which can take up to three hours to wear off, the sedation effect of PRO-NOX™ dissipate within only 15 to 20 minutes after the treatment has been completed. You will feel normal again, be able to drive yourself home, and return to your usual routine at that time.
Yes, PRO-NOX™ will give you a calm, euphoric feeling throughout your procedure, but you will remain awake. Some patients experience tingling in their extremities in addition to the analgesic benefits of using nitrous oxide sedation.
Patients rarely experience significant complications during or following their PRO-NOX™ service. Some of the potential side effects include:
No, the effects of PRO-NOX™ wear off very quickly, and you will be able to drive yourself afterwards.
The cost of PRO-NOX™ sedation depends on the type of treatment you desire, the length of the procedure, and other factors. A price estimate that reflects your treatment and sedation service will be calculated during your consultation.
