Patient Comfort Q & A

When is patient comfort a priority?

Patient comfort is always a priority at Esther Chen MD, but it is of particular concern when aesthetic treatments have the potential to be slightly uncomfortable. 

Aesthetic treatments that may benefit from additional steps to ensure patient comfort include:

  • Laser skin resurfacing
  • Ultherapy
  • Laser hair removal
  • Application of Botox® and dermal fillers
  • Preparation and injection of Eclipse PRP®

Many people find these procedures quite tolerable without needing extra steps to ensure comfort. But, if you’re concerned about pain or anxiety, talk to Dr. Chen about your options. You can also call for a complimentary virtual consultation to discuss your concerns about sensation and options to achieve more comfort.

How does Pro-Nox provide patient comfort?

Pro-Nox delivers fast relief from pain and anxiety that is sometimes associated with aesthetic treatments. Offering a safe mixture of 50% nitrous oxide and 50% oxygen, Pro-Nox is great for any potentially painful aesthetic treatment. When you breathe in the Pro-Nox oxygen and nitrous oxide combination, it offers immediate relief from discomfort or anxiety.

You’re in control of the delivery of your relief at all times. Pro-Nox is patient-initiated (you turn it on) and patient-controlled (you choose when you need it). You respond to your body’s pain signals, so you get the relief you need when you need it.

Pro-Nox is non-invasive, non-addictive, and delays, or even eliminates, the need for other pain medications, even during recovery. Plus, Dr. Chen uses a disposable filter with the system that removes 99.9% of germs - because your health and safety are always a priority.

Are there side effects?

Pro-Nox takes effect in seconds and clears your body within minutes. That means you can go about your business after your appointment. Because Pro-Nox clears from your system quickly, you’re able to drive yourself. There’s no need to arrange for a friend or family member to transport you home. That makes it even easier to schedule your aesthetic service. 


If the fear of pain and anxiety keeps you from getting the aesthetic treatments that can help you feel and look your best, call the office of Esther Chen MD to learn about the team’s commitment to patient comfort. Set up an in-person or telehealth appointment.
