Bravia Dermatology is proud to be the first dermatology office in Northwest Ohio to offer Pro-Nox - inhaled nitrous oxide ("laughing gas") analgesia for pain and anxiety control.
The effects are nearly instantaneous, and it wears off within minutes for most patients. This is an on-demand, patient administered treatment that has an incredible safety record. It's even used safely during labor and delivery to reduce labor pain. In fact, even Kate Middleton used nitrous oxide during her delivery of Prince Louis.
While ProNox is usually not necessary for local skin surgery, it is an optional add on for patients who are very anxious. Pro-Nox also helps patients who are anxious or have breakthrough pain during cosmetic injections, laser, or other procedures.
ProNox is only offered at our Toledo location.
