Over the years, Dr. Amy A. Vaughan’s patients have said that they wish they could undergo minimally invasive cosmetic procedures under local anesthesia or awake. That is why Dr. Vaughan has made the decision to bring PRO-NOX™ into her practice, providing a state-of-the-art level of comfort to meet her patient’s wishes.
What is PRO-NOX™?
PRO-NOX™ is a pneumatically driven gas system designed to deliver a 50% oxygen and a 50% nitrous oxide mixture to adult and pediatric patients for the relief of pain and anxiety during their cosmetic procedures. It is a Patient-Controlled Inhaled Analgesia for in-office use and takes effect in seconds, offering immediate relief of pain and anxiety. PRO-NOX™ is ideal for aesthetic procedures such as Clear+Brilliant, Ultherapy, Collagen PIN, laser treatments, any cosmetic injection such as Botox, dermal fillers and more.
This device will allow patients to undergo procedures under local anesthesia with minimal awareness, which in turn will allow patients to be more comfortable and to also receive optimal results due to having a higher tolerance from their level of comfort to maximum treatment efforts.
How Does it Work?
PRO-NOX™ is administered by the patient, and works to decrease pain, anxiety, and awareness during the procedure. Following the procedure, the patient will be able to drive themselves home, and will be fully aware within 10 minutes after the procedure is completed. This device will allow for more cosmetic procedures under local anesthesia and will allow Dr. Amy Vaughan Dermatology to provide the highest level of comfort for our patients to receive procedures at ease.
