Introducing Penthrox: Breathe away pain and anxiety

If you’ve ever felt nervous or apprehensive about undergoing certain aesthetic treatments, we have great news for you! Penthrox is now available at Synergy Medical Aesthetics in Nanaimo.

What is Penthrox, and how does it work?

Penthrox, also known as the “green whistle”, is a fast-acting and non-invasive analgesic. It’s a self-administered inhaler that provides rapid pain and anxiety relief when you need it most. Once inhaled, Penthrox quickly takes effect, helping you relax and feel at ease during your procedure.

Is Penthrox safe and suitable for all patients?

Safety is our utmost priority, and we’re pleased to say that Penthrox has an excellent safety profile. It has been used globally for decades, with millions of successful administrations. It’s well-tolerated by most patients, but our experienced medical team will assess your medical history and ensure it’s a suitable option for you.
