When it comes to surgery, most patients want to know how it feels. More specifically, they want to know how they will feel during and after their procedure. Historically, the only option has been for surgical patients to put their comfort into the hands of their medical team. This is a safe and effective option—but it is no longer the only one. With PRO-NOX™, New York's Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh is introducing an advanced pain-management method to his patients.
PRO-NOX™ puts pain management directly in the hands of the person undergoing any number of procedures. A popular choice for women in labor, the technology has also proven effective in a range of cosmetic settings, with applications possible for non-surgical treatments and surgical procedures alike.

PRO-NOX™ delivers a gas to be inhaled by the patient, who holds the delivery end of the device and breathes it in as needed or desired. The gas is a 50/50 mix of nitrous oxide and oxygen. Nitrous oxide works as a sedative in the human body, given its ability to produce pleasurable feelings of relaxation. For this reason, it can both calm anxiety and dull the sensation of medical procedures themselves.
When inhaled, the 50/50 gas mix begins to work within seconds. The effects will stop shortly after the patient decides to no longer breathe the mixture. Unlike many other anesthetics, the duration of the effects of PRO-NOX™ can wear off in a matter of minutes. The speed at which PRO-NOX™ allows patients to regain full use of their faculties speeds recovery, lowers stress during any recovery period, and can even create more opportunities for patients to drive themselves to and from their appointments.
The applicator's mouthpiece is changed out for each patient, making this a hygienic option for anyone seeking to make their procedure or treatment as comfortable as possible.
Because there are no injections, needle-related side effects—such as redness and swelling—are not just minimized, but avoided.
A better question is: What can't PRO-NOX™ be used for? The effects of PRO-NOX™ are ideal for nonsurgical treatments that can cause discomfort, as well as surgical procedures, such as liposuction. PRO-NOX™ has been used for breast augmentation, tummy tucks, facelifts, butt lifts, fat transfer, and more.
