With Ultherapy technology and the PRO-NOX nitrous oxide delivery system, we can gently tone and tighten loose skin with absolutely no discomfort. Our team understands that some patients avoid cosmetic treatments because they are nervous about soreness and irritation, and that is why we are proud to offer an advanced nitrous oxide system that is both safe and effective. You will hardly feel anything during your appointment, and the results could easily last for a while with the proper aftercare.
Ultrasound machines are used thousands of times a day in hospitals and medical centers throughout the world. These devices usually take digital images of the inside of the body, but a handful of researchers discovered that ultrasonic waves might have other uses as well. When ultrasonic waves are set to a specific frequency, they can stimulate new collagen growth. This procedure doesn’t affect any of the nearby soft tissue, and that is one of the reasons why the side effects are so minimal. Most patients walk out of our office with nothing more than some redness around their treatment sites.
A Look at PRO-NOX
Ultherapy is considered to be non-surgical, but some patients are still very sensitive to heat. PRO-NOX is a patient-controlled anesthetic system for outpatient treatments such as Ultherapy. Unlike general anesthetics that leave you feeling groggy for hours, the effects of PRO-NOX fade away within just a few minutes. In addition to reducing discomfort, this technology also puts you at ease. Many patients avoid cosmetic treatments because of nervousness, and PRO-NOX helps to alleviate those fears. You will be able to respond to any discomfort or anxiety that you are feeling in a matter of seconds.
Before and After Your Appointments
With this combination treatment, your appointment is going to be quick and pain-free. If you decide to use the PRO-NOX system, then you will be able to drive yourself home immediately after each appointment. Any side effects that you experience should fade away within a few hours of the treatment. To learn more, contact Torrey Pines Dermatology today to schedule an appointment!
