Does wearing the head wrap help the swelling go down after the first 15 hours?

Dr. Dean Kane Q & A Q. Does wearing the head wrap help the swelling go down after the first 15 hours? A. ​Following surgery, ThermiRF or any injury to the face, neck and other parts of the body a normal healing cascade occurs which initially includes swelling. The more inflammation, the more swelling. Swelling too sets up a vicious cycle of more swelling for days to weeks. Compression, elevation, massage, cooling following by warmth are all helpful in reducing the cycle of inflammation and swelling. ​ ​While each patient is unique and may need more or less care following the procedure, the value of these principles is useful to everyone. ​ ​I hope this helps! All the best!   This information is not meant as medical advice. It is provided solely for education.
