PRO-NOX™ Nitrous Oxide Delivery System

Carlyle Dermatology is proud to provide our patients with a safe and effective way to control discomfort and anxiety during dermatologic surgeries and cosmetic procedures: PRO-NOX™ Nitrous Oxide Delivery System.

PRO-NOX™ is an inhaled gas system designed to deliver a 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide mixture. It has been used around the world for decades and has been proven to be safe and effective.

How PRO-NOX™ Works

PRO-NOX™ is an inhaled analgesia controlled by the patient during dermatologic procedures. You breathe in the oxygen and nitrous oxide mixture, and it takes effect in seconds. This offers you immediate relief from pain and anxiety and allows for quick recovery.

Patients love the control that PRO-NOX™ allows them to have over their own comfort levels during treatment. Studies have shown that this non-addictive alternative for pain management can delay or eliminate the need for other pain medications.

Benefits of PRO-NOX™

The many benefits of using PRO-NOX™ during dermatologic procedures include:

  • Patient control. You are in charge! You are empowered to respond to your body’s own discomfort when you need to.
  • Immediate relief from pain and anxiety.
  • Short duration of effect. The nitrous oxide clears the body within minutes.
  • Ability to drive. Because of the short duration of the effects in your body, you can drive yourself to and from your procedures.
  • Non-invasive and easy to self-administer.
