Product Description & Benefits: A convenient alternative to using leaky ice packs, messy frozen peas, or dripping hot gauze pads and towels, the lightweight, reusable Swiss Therapy Sheet is unlike any other cold compress on the market with its ultra flexible design that enables the compress to conform to your body's shape. The Swiss Therapy Sheet is so light and thin, it feels like a second skin. Unlike other compresses that may leak, this Swiss Therapy Sheet is non-sticky and stays only moist, not wet. The Swiss Therapy Sheet can be used on the body for cold therapy to reduce post-operative swelling and discomfort, decrease healing time, and enables the patient to return to his/her normal activities more quickly. Made with hydrogel and coming in a sterile package, the Swiss Therapy Sheet can also help relieve headaches, fatigue, and be used for general relaxation. Beyond its post-surgery and therapeutic applications, the compress can also be used to enhance your daily personal beauty routine by alleviating tired or puffy eyes, softening wrinkles and pores, and refreshing a tired complexion.
The sheet may be used for a variety of plastic surgeries and cosmetic treatments as it can be cut to appropriate sizes (see full list below). 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.
This reusable Compress provides up to 15-20 minutes of cold relief. With simple refrigerator storage between uses, this reusable compress can be applied again and again for cold therapy.
Instructions For Use: For best results, since the Swiss Therapy Sheet comes in a package of 5 sheets, it is recommended to have a cold compress ready and cooled while the other is being used. For convenience, place the tray with the sheet that is not being used on a bed of ice cubes or crushed ice next to your bed.
Before using, the trays containing the sheets should be placed inside a ziplock bag and cooled in a refrigerator - not the freezer - for a period of 15 minutes. Alternatively, you can also cool the sheet by placing the tray with the sheet on a bed of ice cubes or crushed ice. Using a Tupperware container filled with crushed ice and then placing the tray on top of it is a popular solution. In any case, do not freeze the sheet as it will permanently damage it.
For post-surgery purposes, it is recommended to apply the sheet for 15-20 minutes (or as directed by your doctor), and then off the affected area for 40-45 minutes (or as directed by your doctor).
When not in use, store the sheet in a ziplock bag and return to the refrigerator after every use (see care instructions below for full details).
Swiss Therapy Sheet Care: After use, the sheet can be rinsed with tap water. For best results, store the sheet in a ziplock bag and return to the refrigerator after every use. Additionally, place a few squirts of saline solution (contact lens solution) inside the ziplock bag to help prevent spores from germinating. When stored in the refrigerator, do not place any heavy objects on top of your sheet.
Healthy Tip: For best results, since the Swiss Therapy Sheet comes in a package of 5 sheets, it is recommended to have a cold compress ready and cooled in the refrigerator while the other is being used.
