Dr. Anna Avaliani MD, strives to deliver a very comfortable and anxiety-free experience to all patients throughout their treatments. To stick with her mission, Dr. Avaliani's office offers not one but two of the laughing gas machines that provide a pain-free solution without the use of narcotics. Here Haute Beauty sat down with a Haute Beauty expert to discuss everything you need to know about the Pro-Nox and NitroNox available.

What are the benefits of receiving beauty treatments with Pro-Nox and/or NitroNox?

The fear of procedures is always due to anxiety and the fear of pain. Laughing gas delivery has finally entered the field of aesthetics and cosmetics to help patients deal with their anxiety and also manage the discomfort associated during treatments when numbing cream is not enough and/or there is a fear of taking heavy or strong pain killers.

Pro-Nox and/or NitroNox allow for increased patient comfort. Decreased discomfort. Quicker treatments and total anxiety alleviation for both men and women.

It is a self-administered, safe and effective system of natural laughing gas which delivers a fixed 50/50 amount of two different natural clear and odorless gases: 50% N2O and 50% O2.

How does Pro-Nox and /or NitroNox work?

It is a self-administered relaxation system, which gives patients full and total control of their degree of relaxation.

PRO-NOX delivers a 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide mixture of odorless and colorless but slightly metallic taste gas to provide short-term relief of pain and anxiety during any cosmetic treatment of your choice. It is self-administered using a disposable single-use mouthpiece. It is different from anesthesia, which requires a doctor anesthesiologist, YOU, the patient, are in control to deliver just the right amount of fast-acting relief you feel that you need.

The key difference between anesthesia and analgesia is that all traces fade from your system within ten minutes, so you won’t need a designated driver or family member to take you home.  You are safe to drive or return to your daily activities with no risk.

Do I need assistance after procedure with Pro-Nox and /or NitroNox system?

Absolutely NOT. In 10 minutes all traces of the gas are out of your system and you are back to normal.

How does Pro-Nox and /or NitroNox make you relax?

The mixture creates a slightly euphoric sensation where you are just super relaxed and don’t care about anything that is happening. It’s not anesthesia where one is totally asleep but rather analgesia, where your pain receptors are so relaxed that you almost don’t feel pain or just don’t react to it.

What is the difference between Pro-Nox and NitroNox systems?

They are the same but simply use different brands. They are both are gas delivery systems that provide a mix of 50% Oxygen and 50% Nitrous oxide gas deliverable via single-use, disposable and patient-controlled tubing.
