What is Pro-Nox?

Pro-Nox, also known as “laughing gas”, is a blend of 50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen. It is a safe and effective analgesic (pain reliever) and anxiolytic (anxiety reducer) that can be administered during procedures in our office.

is Pro-Nox Laughing gas safe?

What are the benefits to using it with a procedure?

Using Pro-Nox during a procedure offers several benefits. Firstly, it helps reduce anxiety and stress, promoting a more comfortable and relaxed experience. This can be particularly beneficial for anyone who may feel nervous or apprehensive about the treatment. Additionally, nitrous oxide provides pain relief, making the procedure more comfortable. Pro-Nox is inhaled through a specially designed tube that you hold and can control how much of the nitrous oxide is administered. You are in full control!

Are there side effects, is it safe?

Pro-Nox is safe for use during cosmetic and medical treatments. It has a rapid onset of action and wears off quickly once the inhalation is discontinued. Some temporary side effects may include mild dizziness, nausea, or lightheadedness, but these are rare and subside completely after the treatment.

Is there anyone who should not consider this?

Pro-Nox is not recommended for pregnant women or individuals with a history of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Additionally, anyone who has had cataracts surgery within 3 months should avoid Pro-Nox.

How long do the effects last, can I drive home?

Nitrous oxide usually takes a few minutes to take effect and lasts as long as the gas is still flowing. Once the gas flow is stopped, it takes only about 5 minutes to fully recover to feeling completely normal. You can walk out after the procedure and drive home safely!

We hope this information gives you a better understanding of nitrous oxide and its benefits if you would like to use it for your treatment!

Kim has been our family dermatology PA for 10 yrs.  Skin and doctors, in general, are a sensitive topic for me due to some traumatic past experiences.  Once a year, I happily have a skin check with Kim to care for my 1950’s sunbaked skin.  After my first appointment with Kim, I knew I had found a skilled, trustworthy PA.  I feel at ease no matter what she is helping me with and trust her gentle guidance.  She is kind, calm, sensitive, enthusiastic, compassionate, honest and treats us as family.  Usually I work hard to relax at any doctor’s appointment but am calmed just by her presence.  Kim is loved and appreciated by all her patients.  I have referred many grateful friends who understand how precious it is to find a health practitioner who is skilled, listens and understands people.  Gratefully yours.

“Pauli Morrow is a gem of a human being and dermatologist. As an ex-sun worshiper, I really appreciate her thoroughness on skin checks and assistance around sun damage. Pauli is also a true artist with the needle. I walk out of her office knowing I’m going to be super fresh faced in a naturally enhanced way. I owe Pauli so much when it comes to keeping my skin healthy and looking amazing. I am very lucky to be in such amazing knowledgeable hands for the last 10 plus years. I feel beyond cared for – Pauli is simply the best!

“I have been a patient of Pauli Morrow’s for over 20 years. Words that come to mind when thinking of Pauli are talent, passion, skill, experience and trustworthy. Pauli loves her work and that shows in the way she treats her patients—with an exceptional curiosity, focus, and real interest in caring for others—and in the incredible results I see in my skin after every office visit. It may be slightly over-the-top, but even though I now live several states away, sometimes I still fly across the country for treatments with Pauli because I trust her so much and know her skills are worth the effort and will make a difference every time.”

“Pauli Morrow keeps me looking 10 years younger … oh yeah, and she saved my life. Literally. I’ve been a patient of Pauli Morrow for over 20 years. Cosmetic treatment was my primary goal and she is an ARTIST. She saw me for my general derm checks. She brilliantly zeroed in on a spot on my arm which turned out to be melanoma. Without her seeing this, I would never have had it looked at! I owe her my life. Plus I look fabulous while living it, all thanks to her!!!”
