If you’re sensitive to pain or your nerves are preventing you from committing to a cosmetic procedure, working with a practitioner like Dr. Hermann is your first step toward a successful, comfortable experience. Dr. Hermann offers Pro-Nox to patients who want to be more relaxed and have less pain during their aesthetic treatment.

Pro-Nox is a patient-controlled pain management system that delivers a blend of 50% oxygen and 50% nitrous oxide to the brain through a plastic mouthpiece.
