What is “Pronox” and how is it used for minimally invasive procedures?

shutterstock 1316380772 Dr. Thomas Romo III of Romo Plastic Surgery in New York, NY is a dedicated professional who offers a wide range of facial procedures for both men and women. In addition to plastic surgeries, he also provides a myriad of nonsurgical and minimally-invasive alternative treatments for the facial skin, including laser skin rejuvenation and cosmetic injectables such as Botox. Because some of these procedures may cause anxiety or minimal discomfort for patients, he is pleased to offer the administration of Pronox. 

What is  Pronox? 

Dr. Thomas Romo III describes Pronox as a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen that work as a sedative during short, outpatient procedures. Nitrous oxide is the same odorless, colorless gas that is administered to patients during dental procedures and is more commonly known as “laughing gas.” It allows for almost instant relaxation for the patient and is administered through the nose. Dr. Thomas Romo III can use Pronox in conjunction with many different types of treatments, and may recommend it for patients seeking ultimate comfort during any procedure or treatment performed at the office. 

How long does the analgesic effect last? 

Pronox is administered to the body and monitored throughout the treatment to ensure proper levels and safety. It takes effect quickly, and after the procedure, when oxygen is administered, it can be quickly reversed. Patients who use Pronox will not need to arrange for transportation as they can drive after their treatment is performed. 

Are there any side effects associated with the use of Pronox? 

One of the primary benefits of Pronox is that is does not have any side effects, and it is effective and safe for all ages.
