Nitronox Q & A

What is the CynosureⓇ Nitronox™?

The Cynosure Nitronox is a cutting-edge nitrous oxide and oxygen system that helps you relax during aesthetic treatments while reducing any discomfort you may experience. This innovative system combines a fixed mixture of 50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen that can reduce your anxiety almost immediately and keep you calm throughout many minimally invasive procedures.

Unlike being under general anesthesia, the Nitronox allows you to stay awake and conscious during your treatment but acts as a relaxant and distraction to the procedure. What’s more, its unique self-administration system lets you control the flow of the medication, ensuring that you get the anxiety reduction you need to remain comfortable and at ease.

What treatments can I combine with Nitronox?

Dr. Cernaianu performs a variety of short, minimally invasive and noninvasive aesthetic treatments with the Nitronox analgesia system. Some of the most common include:

  • Body contouring
  • Submental fat treatments
  • Laser hair removal
  • Skin revitalization
  • Laser skin resurfacing

During your treatment with Nitronox, you remain awake and responsive. You breathe on your own, and risks are minimal. You aren’t under full anesthesia, but relaxed and calm.

When you begin the self-administration of nitrous oxide and oxygen through the Nitronox, the anxiety-reducing effects start quickly, normally within one to two minutes. Once the treatment is over and you stop the medication, the effects wear off almost immediately. After 5-10 minutes, the medication has completely left your system.

What are the benefits of using the Cynosure Nitronox?

When you opt to have an aesthetic treatment with the Cynosure Nitronox, you benefit in many ways. This state-of-the-art equipment helps you experience:

  • Decreased pain and discomfort
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Shorter treatment time
  • Increased physician efficiency
  • Fast-acting relief
  • Quick recovery

What’s more, at Hera Healthcare, Dr. Cernaianu provides a complimentary recyclable mask and tubing that are required for the Nitronox device. The team asks that you reuse this mask and tubing by bringing it with you for any additional procedures. Failure to do so results in a $50 fee.

To learn more about the Nitronox system or to schedule your next aesthetic treatment, call Hera Healthcare today. You can also book your initial consultation with Dr. Cernaianu online.
