Your comfort and satisfaction are top priorities at Southern Surgical Arts, and we continually invest in the latest technology and most effective techniques possible in order to serve you best. Adding the new Pro-Nox nitrous oxide system to our practice is the latest example of our commitment to exceptional patient care. The Pro-Nox system uses nitrous oxide as an analgesic agent to safely and effectively eliminate pain. Not to be confused with traditional anesthesia, where the requisite anesthesiologist serves as driver and nurse anesthetist as chaperone, the Pro-Nox system is patient controlled analgesia. Now you can sit in the driver’s seat as fast-acting, dissociating nitrous oxide prevents any pain. Best of all, within 5-10 minutes there is absolutely no trace of chemical in your body, so you can drive safely with no risk.
The Pro-Nox system offers state of the art comfort for procedures like Ultherapy, Halo, ProFractional, Infini, PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal, Fractional CO2, Platelet Rich Plasma, injectables like Botox and Juvederm. During your treatment, you will be able to determine the amount of pain relief you need as you hold a disposable mouthpiece and hose and gently breathe nitrous oxide into your lungs. Because you know your body and your pain threshhold better than anyone, you can now effectively control how much or little pain relief you require.
Important to note, Pro-Nox is different than the nitrous oxide administered by your dentist. Dentists administer up to 70% nitrous oxide which is considered anesthesia and the patient has no control over how much they breath in. While Pro-Nox is considered analgesia and the patient has complete control over the amount they breath in. Just to be safe we ask patients to wait 10 minutes after the procedure and then they are safe to hit the road. Just think, greater comfort and no driver needed.
Southern Surgical Arts is thrilled to offer patients The Pro-Nox system — the latest addition to our repertoire of top-notch techniques and services aimed at improving your experience and overall satisfaction.
