Here at Southern Plastic Surgery, we strive to provide every patient we see with the smoothest, most comfortable experience possible. So, when a new advancement in cosmetic technology becomes available, we’re always curious to see if this is something our patients can benefit from. This is why both Southern Plastic Surgery and Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center are excited to announce that we are now offering the Pro-Nox™ N2O system for pain management.


Pro-Nox™ is a cutting-edge nitrous oxide delivery system designed to help make certain cosmetic procedures more comfortable for patients. The system uses a safe mix of 50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen. Unlike traditional anesthesia, Pro-Nox™ allows the patient to control the amount of pain relief they need with a simple mouthpiece and hose.

Pro-Nox™ can assist patients in managing pain, discomfort, and anxiety that occurs during their procedure. It can be used during a wide variety of procedures ranging from liposuction to cosmetic injections to laser treatments. Once the mixture enters your system, you will begin to feel its calming effects within seconds.

This outstanding system is considered to be among the safest and mildest forms of sedation available. Patients can adjust the level of relief they experience based on their specific pain threshold. The Pro-Nox™ system is needle-free, does not have any known side effects, and wears off immediately after treatment. This means you will be able to safely drive home after your procedure.

Hear from some of our patients who have experienced the difference Pro-Nox™ can make:

“When my daughter had filler injections for her lips, her results were so good. I became obsessed with having it done myself. I had Botox® done many years ago, and although I was happy with the results, a severe needle phobia had prevented me from returning for repeat or maintenance treatments. The Pro-Nox™ machine has changed my life! I went for a filler treatment and was so excited that I was able to basically sleep through it while feeling absolutely nothing. I have since returned a second time for Botox® (using Pro-Nox™, of course) with the same stellar results! This machine rocks!”

“I had such a positive experience with my recent liposuction procedure with Dr. Whiteman. The procedure was quick, the recovery was simple, and thanks to the Pro-Nox™ machine, my anxiety was drastically reduced. I have already recommended this procedure to friends and family!”

Our goal for every appointment is to provide each patient with the best possible experience, and we’re proud to offer Pro-Nox™ as one more step toward this goal.
