What is Laughing Gas?

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!

Our Painless Waxing Process

Your BALD painless wax experience begins with a brief consultation with one of our licensed anesthesiologists. We’ll take a quick look at your medical history and your basic vitals to make sure you have no conditions or factors that prevent you from having an anesthetic.

You will then be given Tylenol and Ibuprofen for additional pain reduction. A simple finger monitor will also be applied to ensure that everything is good with your body during waxing and use of the laughing gas.

You will breathe in the laughing gas through a handheld dispenser. Once the nitrous starts to take effect, warm wax will be applied to the areas of your body you want hair-free. As the wax is removed, the hair underneath is fully removed as well, with far less pain than traditional waxing, thanks to our unique approach.

Once the waxing is complete, we will turn off the nitrous, and as you breathe in normal air you will quickly return to normal. Usually within seconds!
