Maximizing Comfort by Eliminating Pain
At Elamar we pride ourselves on providing a luxury experience from the moment you walk through our doors all the way through treatment.
We believe that one key element to an exceptional experience is comfort, so we provide a variety of options to eliminate pain during our treatments and to help you overcome any anxiety you may feel.
Topical Numbing Cream
We provide topical numbing in the form of a cream for many of our treatments, such as microneedling, laser treatments and some injectables. Topical numbing requires 30 to 45 minutes to take effect. We’ll always let you know when a treatment calls for this.
We use lidocaine as a local anesthesia. It can be injected beneath the skin to numb the target area prior to treatment. We use lidocaine in many treatments such as dermal filler, hormone pellet insertion, and others.
Pro-Nox is a self administered analgesic that provides quick pain relief and eases anxiety.
It’s a 50/50 mix of Oxygen and Nitrous Oxide. This combination has been used around the world in labor and delivery for decades, so it’s very safe.
One of the wonderful aspects of Pro-Nox is that you control the amount of analgesia. During your treatment, you hold on to the disposable mouthpiece and hose as breathe in the nitrous oxide as needed.
Benefits of Pro-Nox

Patient-administered: empowers you to determine the amount of pain and anxiety relief you need.
Quick onset: takes effect in seconds.

The Zimmer is a cold air devices intended to minimize pain and thermal injury during laser and other skin treatments. It can also be used to provide temporary topical anesthetic relief for injection sites.
The Zimmer works by blowing cooled air on the skin, and since there is no skin contact it will never burn you. It’s very efficient for pain treatment, swelling reduction and muscle relaxation.
Oral Pain Medication (Prescribed by Dr. Gill)
At Elamar we also have the ability to offer oral pain medication via prescription. Dr. Gill will discuss this option with you if necessary depending on the treatment and your level of concern. Please keep in mind that all clients who choose oral medication for one of their treatments will be required to bring a driver with them to their appointment.
