Maximize Your Comfort With Nitronox™

Nitronox is our proven treatment for safely and effectively managing patient pain and anxiety during some aesthetic and dermatological procedures. The Nitronox system delivers a fixed 50% N2O and 50% O2 directly to patients on an as needed basis – If you experience any discomfort or anxiety during your treatment, you are able to inhale the gas mixture through a mask or mouthpiece, as needed. You’ll be fully awake, responsive, and breathing on your own through the entire process.

What to Expect:

When you come in for your dermal filler appointment, you will be given the option of using the Nitronox system. It is fast-acting, taking effect within minutes. The effects of Nitronox last a short duration so you will be able to drive home after your appointment. Nitronox’s demand flow ensures that you only receive what you inhale.

Nitrous oxide is a “drug” with contraindications for use. There are also occupational concerns and risks to be aware of. Contraindications are very well documented and easy to assess. Occupational risks can be monitored and managed effectively. Additional risks could include combining N2O/O2 with other drugs and medications. Be sure to ask your skin expert at the time of you appointment about any concerns you may have with using Nitronox.

For most patients they will feel the effects of nitrous oxide with in a minute or two. As with any medication the effects may vary from patient to patient. For some it will work great and others it may either not be enough or they will not like how it is making them feel. Once the patient stops inhaling the gas mixture it will be completely out of their system within 5-10 minutes. They will start feeling back to normal almost immediately.
