Pro-Nox™ Pain and Anxiety Management System

Pro-Nox™ Pain and Anxiety Management System

Pro-Nox™ Pain and Anxiety Management System at Skin & Laser Dermatology Centers of Mclean and Woodbridge

Pro-Nox™ is a pain and anxiety management system, widely acclaimed for its efficacy and safety in various medical and cosmetic procedures.

Pro-Nox™ is often likened to “laughing gas” due to its ability to alleviate pain, stress, and discomfort, inducing a relaxed and euphoric state. It’s a 50/50 mix of Nitrous Oxide and Oxygen, administered through a patient-controlled inhalation system. This unique feature puts you in complete control of your pain management, enhancing both safety and comfort.

How Pro-Nox™ Works:

  • Pro-Nox™ is inhaled using a demand valve that allows for self-administration. This ensures maximum safety, as you can control how much gas you inhale based on your pain or anxiety levels.
  • The system includes interchangeable breathing circuits to prevent the spread of germs and viral bacteria. The additional PharmaMini filter provides up to 99.99% viral protection.
  • Unlike general anesthesia, Pro-Nox™ doesn’t cause total sedation. You remain conscious and able to communicate, but with significantly reduced pain and anxiety.

Benefits and Effects:

  • Within the first few breaths, patients typically experience a significant reduction in stress, procedure pain, and general discomfort.
  • Pro-Nox™ creates a sense of well-being, often described as feeling “on Cloud Nine,” making it easier to undergo various treatments.
  • The effects are temporary, and patients often describe feeling relaxed, happy, or giggly, similar to having a few cocktails.

Ideal Candidates and Side Effects:

  • Originally developed for labor and delivery, Pro-Nox™ is safe and effective for almost anyone, including those who are anxious about treatments or uncomfortable with needles.
  • Side effects are generally mild and can include a feeling of light-headedness or a deepening of the voice. Most patients simply feel relaxed and at ease.

Whether you’re undergoing a minor cosmetic procedure or something more extensive, Pro-Nox™ can help make your experience as comfortable as possible.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Holly

Dr. Bajoghli always has time for his patients, you never feel that he is rushing you and after you leave if you have any concerns he is very responsive to the point of giving out his cell phone number. I can’t say enough about him and his staff.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – John

Nurse Rassmussen answers all of my questions, listens to my concerns, examines my skin, goes over my treatment protocol and gets me out the door quickly, but without feeling rushed, so that I can get on with the rest of my day. I have already recommended this practice to a couple of friends, and I will continue to do so with confidence.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – Riley

I really appreciate the polite and professional service that Dr. Bajoghli’s practice provides in my dermatologic health. All of his staff make you feel welcome and are concerned for your care. Speaking as someone who neglected his skin care when I was young, I appreciate having a physician who is personally concerned for his patients.
