What kind of mask do you recommend using after ThermiTight?
Doctor Answers 2
Bandages around the neck and lower face are usually placed after thermitight in order to help reduce swelling. We generally have our patients wear a dressing for 2 days only. After that we allow our patients to shower and get their face wet in the shower. Some doctors prefer that their patients where compression garments for longer. I have not seen any benefit in doing so, which is why we recommend the above.
I always suggest that you follow your surgeon's recommendations for post-operative care.
I like snug garments over the areas I perform ThermiTight for several days after the procedure. After 3-4 days they wear them optimally just at night. The purpose is to reduce swelling, bruising and discomfort. I believe that the results are better when you follow these guidelines and you will see the results sooner. After any swelling, bruising or soreness is gone you no longer need to wear the garments.
