Product Description & Benefits: A practical alternative to leaky ice facial packs, messy frozen peas, and hot gauze pads or towels, the reusable, doctor-recommended Face Masque Hot & Cold Pack Compress can be used on the face for hot or cold therapy to help in reducing post-operative swelling, bruising, pain, and discomfort and to speed your healing. Beyond its post-surgery applications, the compress can be used to enhance your daily personal beauty routine by softening wrinkles and pores, refreshing a tired complexion, and alleviating tired or puffy eyes. With hot therapy, aside from improving post-operative bruising, it can also alleviate sinus pressure due to common colds and allergies. Developed by dermatologist Dr. Tina Alster (Founding Director, Washington Institute of Dermatological Laser Surgery), the Face Masque Hot & Cold Compress stays cold longer than comparable products (up to 2 hours) and its unique soft outer casing feels good on the skin and enhances patient comfort for extended use. A form-fitting Velcro fastening system ensures that the Masque firmly stays in place around your head. The coolant gel within the compress is distributed evenly throughout this sturdy product, allowing the compress to contour to the shape of your face as you heal. The patented gel formula keeps the masque flexible and not hard at freezing temperatures. This quality item is also lightweight, hypo-allergenic, non-toxic and hygienic. The compress comes packaged in a handy plastic tote to take with you on extended trips from your home or the hospital.
The Compress may be used for a wide range of cosmetic procedures, including chemical peel, botox, collagen, restylane, and other injections, eyelid surgery, face lift, laser skin resurfacing, rhinoplasty, and other procedures (see full list below). Beyond using the Masque during recovery from a cosmetic procedure (see full list below), this product can enhance your personal beauty routine by softening wrinkles and pores, and reducing tired or puffy eyes. The compress is highly effective for puffy eyes treatment, alleviation of tired eyes and headaches, relief from clogged sinuses due to colds and allergies, rosacea, and first aid for burns and trauma.
The immediate application of cold therapy is beneficial for reducing post-operative swelling by constricting the capillary vessels and slowing down the flow of blood and other fluids to the injured or operated area. Patients also benefit from cold therapy’s anesthetic effect on the nerves, which helps reduce the sensation of pain and provides a soothing, refreshing, and relaxing feeling to the injured or operated area. Further, cold therapy reduces the risk of hematoma formation. Because cold therapy helps to restore strength, mobility and range of motion more quickly, patients may reduce their hospital stay, heal faster and feel better sooner. Hot therapy is beneficial in reducing post-operative bruising by helping break down bruising discolorations (i.e. black, blue, purple, green, gray, yellow and other discolorations). Hot therapy can also help increase comfort and relaxation for sore, achy skin and muscle tissues that have been operated on.
This reusable Hot & Cold Full Face Compress provides up to 2 hours of cold or heat relief. With simple freezer storage between uses, this reusable face compress can be applied again and again. The flexible polyurethane casing conforms gently to the area where the application of therapy is needed. The compress's patented non-freezable, non-toxic gel remains flexible even at freezing temperatures. The design of the compress keeps the gel distributed evenly over the treatment area for better cold or heat therapy treatment. Both the non-freezable gel and the material used to make the compress are non-toxic, making the compress safe for all applications.
