Laughing gas, formally known as nitrous oxide, is America’s oldest anesthetic.
It is on the World Health Organization’s List of Essential Medicines for its efficacy, safety, and the important role it plays in healthcare. It was first demonstrated at Harvard in 1844, and has been in use in operating rooms and dentist offices across the world ever since.
Laughing gas remains a component of anesthetic cocktails today because of how well it reduces pain.
Laughing gas is also an excellent anxiolytic, analgesic, and hypnotic. It has stood the test of time because it is low risk and very safe.
In fact, it quickly became the party drug of the 19th century because of its euphoric qualities!
It works by rapidly moving from the lungs to the brain via the blood stream. Its effects are felt in just a few breaths and it is completely removed from the system in just a few more.
It is potent enough to mitigate the pain of a pregnant woman’s labor contractions or a dentist’s drill. Laughing gas is therefore the perfect anesthetic for safe and comfortable hair removal!
N2O. It is also commonly referred to as just “nitrous.”
While each patient will have their own personal experience with the gas, nitrous oxide is called laughing gas for a reason. People prone to laughing may giggle. Others have described the experience as a little woozy and goofy, or even the “two-martini effect.” Most people find nitrous entirely pleasant, but those unfamiliar with any form of intoxication may disagree.
At BALD we put your safety first! Hair removal is a cosmetic procedure and therefore it is performed on an elective basis. People with severe systemic diseases should proceed with caution. Our licensed anesthesiologists or physicians will consult with you and check your medical history, and individuals with the following conditions will not be given anesthetics or waxed:
Patients with a complex medical history will need to have clearance from their primary care doctor prior to proceeding. If you think you might not be eligible for the anesthetic, please feel free to contact us in advance to discuss your medical history.
At BALD the patient is in control. Each patient will be able to self-administer up to a 50% concentration of nitrous oxide during hair removal. This is enough to dull the pain, but not enough to make a patient fall asleep or experience unconsciousness. When you feel you have had enough, you can stop the nitrous oxide and just enjoy the temporary effects of laughing gas.
3-5 breaths. It’s that quick!
Nitrous oxide has a rapid onset and offset, so you will naturally also breathe off its effects very quickly. This is usually the same number of breaths as it took for the effects to set in.
The doctor will initially take your vitals with a stethoscope and blood pressure cuff. During the waxing you will wear a simple device that clips onto one finger, called a pulse oximeter, that measures your blood oxygen levels and is non-invasive.
We promise no poking! No IVs and no IV drugs will be administered!
Most people suffer no adverse effects from nitrous oxide and actually find it to be enjoyable. Some people can have a drunk-like feeling that can be associated with nausea or even vomiting. They will be treated immediately by stopping the flow of the nitrous and provided an antiemetic (anti-nausea drug) to counteract such effects.
We also offer Botox, Dermaplaning, Facials, Kybellia, and Juvaderm fillers as walk ins with nitrous oxide.
