After jaw surgery or oral surgery, you often need to apply ice packs to your face on a regular basis for several days to help reduce swelling. This is especially true after wisdom teeth are removed.
These handy, well-constructed face wraps do the trick. They are made of stretchy satin spandex material that is very soft to the touch. A special built-in pocket on each side holds an ice pack, so that you can ice both sides of your face while remaining hands-free. They come in a choice of three colors: light blue, white, or black. (The black color is best to hide blood stains).
The split top and tailored chin ensure a comfortable, slip-free fit, no matter the length of your hair. Two velcro closures at the top ensure a secure fit and offer a custom amount of compression to help reduce pain and swelling. The ice packs are large enough to cover the entire cheek area. The gel packs are reusable and the face wrap is machine washable (we suggest putting it in a bag for delicates -- if you don't have one, then wash it by hand).
The Cool Jaw wrap (similar to the Jaw Bra) comes with 4 white 3" X 5" clear gel packs, which stay frozen and cold for about an hour when worn on your face. Keep 2 on your face, and 2 in the freezer, to ensure that one pair is always frozen and ready to use. (Please note that the product comes with the clear gel packs and they cannot be substituted).
Additionally, you may buy the blue flexible hot/cold gel packs (sold separately).
The blue ice packs may be used frozen or heated and remain flexible and pliable when frozen to conform to the shape of the face. They stay frozen for about 30 minutes when worn on the face. They're perfect for "hot/cold" therapy, if your doctor recommends it.
Instructions: Freeze the ice packs for at least 2 hours before the first use. Keep two on your face and two in the freezer for continuous cold therapy.
