Pain Management – We Have Penthrox!

Pain Management - We Have Penthrox!


Dr. Lubitz and the staff at Art of Skin Dermatology are focused on patient care and comfort. With advancements in medical technology and a dedication to staying at the forefront of innovation, we’re thrilled to announce the addition of Penthrox.

Pain management is key to the success and comfort of dermatological procedures, whether it’s a minor skin treatment or a more involved cosmetic procedure. Penthrox, also known as the “green whistle” or “methoxyflurane,” represents a revolutionary approach to pain relief that aligns perfectly with our patient-centric philosophy.

So, what exactly is Penthrox, and why are we so excited about it?

Penthrox is an inhaled analgesic that offers rapid pain relief with a simple, non-invasive delivery method. Its effectiveness, ease of use, and versatility make it a great tool in dermatological procedures. Whether it’s numbing the skin for a biopsy, reducing discomfort during laser treatments, or alleviating anxiety before a cosmetic procedure, Penthrox has proven to be a game-changer in pain management.

One of the key advantages of Penthrox is its fast-acting nature. Within minutes of inhalation, patients experience significant pain relief, allowing us to proceed with procedures more efficiently while minimizing any unnecessary discomfort. This rapid onset is great for patient comfort and streamlines the procedure process, enabling us to deliver exceptional care with precision and speed.

Dr. Lubitz believes in a personalized care model which is tailored to each patient’s unique needs. With the addition of Penthrox, we now have another tool to customize pain management strategies according to individual preferences and sensitivities. Whether a patient prefers a lighter sedation or requires more profound pain relief, we can adjust the dosage and administration of Penthrox to ensure optimal comfort and safety.

Furthermore, Penthrox offers a safer alternative to traditional sedatives and narcotics, reducing the risk of adverse reactions and complications. Its non-narcotic nature and minimal impact on respiratory function make it suitable for a wide range of patients, including those with underlying health conditions or a history of adverse reactions to other medications.

As advocates for continuous improvement in the dermatology field, we’re thrilled to integrate Penthrox into Dr. Lubitz’ practice at Art of Skin Dermatology. Our commitment to providing exceptional care extends beyond achieving clinical excellence; it encompasses creating a supportive and comfortable environment where patients feel valued and cared for every step of the way.
