What is Nitronox?
Nitronox is our proven treatment for safely and effectively managing patient pain and anxiety. The Nitronox system delivers a fixed 50% N2O and 50% O2 directly to patients on an as needed basis – providing control and a distraction to the patient through self-administration.
It is used during short, minimally-invasive and non-invasive procedures and aesthetic applications, including:
- Botulinum injections
- Dermal fillers
- Non-invasive body contouring
- Laser hair reduction
- Skin revitalization
- Tattoo removal
- Laser liposuction
How Does Nitronox Work?
An equal measure of 50% O2 and 50% N2O is directly delivered to the patient on an “as needed” basis. The Nitronox system will actually be controlled by you. During your appointment, we will wheel in the system on a 2-cylinder cart. It has built-in wheels so that we can easily move it around our office. Oxygen and nitrous oxide are delivered via mask, and with oxygen-driven pressure control, the system is designed to immediately shut off the N2O in the event of O2 depletion. Exhaled gas is properly vented with the Nitronox Scavenger tube, which connects to a vacuuming system. There is also a built-in oxygen fail-safe to prevent the delivery of nitrous oxide without oxygen.
What Can I Expect During My Appointment?
When you come in for your appointment, you will have the option of using the Nitronox system. It is fast-acting and takes effect within minutes. The effects of the system only last a short duration, too, so you will be able to drive home after your appointment. Nitronox’s demand flow ensures that you only receive what you inhale. During your aesthetic treatment, you will hold a handheld supply valve in order to self-administer the mixture of N2O and O2. If you have any questions or concerns about Nitronox before your treatment, please let us know.
