Experience a relaxed aesthetic treatment using laughing gas

Is anxiety keeping you from scheduling your next aesthetic or cosmetic treatment?

Dr. Derron Spikes at Allure Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is now offering Pro-Nox, which uses nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, for all in-office procedures. These procedures include, but are not limited to laser treatments, Botox, fillers, BodyTite, chemical peel, or liposuction.

Nitrous oxide has been used in dental offices and other medical settings for years, and has proven to be just as effective in the cosmetic and aesthetic office setting. Pro-Nox is designed to deliver a 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide mixture to reduce the perception of pain and anxiety in a medical setting.

“This innovative tool is a patient-controlled inhaled analgesia for easy in-office use that takes effect in just a few breaths, offering immediate relief. Our patients have enjoyed being able to have this option during procedures,” said Dr. Spikes. “It doesn’t take away the pain or discomfort that may occur, but it makes it to where you aren’t aware of it.”

Here are some benefits of nitrous oxide:

  • Anxiety and perception of pain is reduced quickly
  • You are in control of how much Pro-Nox you receive; just breathe it in when you need to feel comfortable
  • Quick recovery; unlike traditional anesthesia, Pro-Nox allows you to leave the office soon after your procedure is completed
  • Minimal to no side effects

Our patients have reported reduced anxiety and a more comfortable experience during procedures. One patient said, “I couldn’t believe how easy it was to use and how quickly it took effect. It was enough relief to get me through my BodyTite procedure. I can’t recommend it enough!”
