People love to say beauty is pain, but here at Cure in Mystic, we don’t subscribe to that old-fashioned notion. We’re committed to keeping you comfortable and relaxed during medical spa services. That’s why we’re excited to tell you about Pro-Nox. Pro-Nox is a new way to manage pain during procedures, without all the headaches of general anesthesia. There’s a lot to love about Pro-Nox, so keep reading to find out what it is, how it works, and all the benefits it has to offer.
What is Pro-Nox?
Pro-Nox is a pain-management system that delivers a proven, safe mixture of 50 percent nitrous oxide and 50 percent oxygen to a patient. Pro-Nox falls under the category of analgesic pain management, which means, unlike anesthesia, a patient experiences pain relief without loss of sensation or consciousness. Its innovative design allows patients to control the amount of analgesia they inhale, and it typically takes effect in just a few breaths, offering immediate relief.
Benefits of Pro-Nox
- It has a quick recovery time. Since it is an analgesic and not an anesthetic, the recovery time is short, so you’ll be able to drive yourself home after your service.
- It’s safe. Pro-Nox has an internal on-demand valve which offers superior infection control. Additionally, the Pro-Nox system has audible and visual alarms that warn when gas is running low.
- It’s self-administered. You can control when you inhale the analgesic, which allows you to maintain the relief you need throughout the service. If your pain is starting to creep back up in the middle of a procedure, you can inhale more analgesic so you stay comfortable.
- It can relieve anxiety. In addition to relieving pain, Pro-Nox can also help relieve anxiety. If you’re someone who struggles with anxiety during a medical procedure, ask one of Cure’s trained staff members about adding Pro-Nox to your service.
