Pain and Anxiety Relief (Pro-Nox™) in Akron, OH

Do you get anxious during your cosmetic treatments and wish there was a way to calm yourself? Dr. Carp at Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center is available to help you! Located in Akron, Ohio, Dr. Carp provides Pro-Nox™ for patients seeking to alleviate their pain and anxiety throughout their treatments.

What is Pro-Nox™?

Pro-Nox™ is a nitrous oxide delivery system that uses a mixture of nitrous oxide and pure oxygen to safely control your pain and ease your anxiety throughout your cosmetic procedure. The use of nitrous oxide and oxygen to provide pain and anxiety relief has been used all over the world. This pain management alternative eliminates the need for an IV or pill. Simply breathe in the Pro-Nox™ gas through the specially designed mouthpiece for a relaxing, pain-free cosmetic experience.

How Much Does Pro-Nox™ Cost?

Pro-Nox™ is considered to be an elective addition to your treatment, so most insurance providers won’t cover the costs. To help make Pro-Nox™ more affordable and accessible for everyone, Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center offers Pro-Nox™ with a minimal charge.

How Does Pro-Nox™ Work?

Pro-Nox™ works by distributing a blend of 50 percent nitrous oxide and 50 percent oxygen through a mouthpiece or mask. By keeping the mouthpiece or mask up to or nearby your face, as directed by Dr. Carp, you will be breathing in the blend of gasses. Pro-Nox™ will then get to work offering immediate relief of your pain and anxiety.

When Can Pro-Nox™ Be Used?

Pro-Nox™ is best used for a variety of cosmetic procedures and treatments, including:

  • Dermal filler and injectable treatments
  • Laser treatments
  • Small surgeries

While Pro-Nox™ is available for a wide range of procedures, we most often recommend using it for dermal filler and injectable treatments. Pro-Nox™ helps to manage the pain and anxiety that patients often experience with needle-based treatments. With Pro-Nox™, we can assure you will stay calm, comfortable and worry-free.

Does Pro-Nox™ Have Side Effects?

Because Pro-Nox™ is 50 percent oxygen, side effects are mild and temporary. Some patients report experiencing mild nausea following their use of Pro-Nox™, however, taking a few deep breaths without the mouthpiece typically helps this feeling subside. If you have any specific questions or concerns about using Pro-Nox™ during your cosmetic treatment, talk to Dr. Carp during your one-on-one consultation.

Can I Drive Myself Home After Procedures Using Pro-Nox™?

Yes, unless directed otherwise by Dr. Carp or one of our staff members, you will be completely safe to drive yourself home after using Pro-Nox™. After just a few minutes without using Pro-Nox™, the nitrous oxide will be expelled from your body and you will be able to go back to your normal daily activities.
