Hot compresses are used to treat old injuries, muscle pain, rheumatic pain, menstrual cramps, boils, and toothache. Hot therapy delivered through a warm/hot compress or mask helps break down and disintegrate bruising discolorations and provides moisture or dry heat to areas of discomfort. Hot therapy can also be soothing on sore facial tissues that have been tightened. You may use hot therapy on your bruises from days around days 2-3 post-op (upon your doctor's approval) provided your swelling is not too considerable. A compress is typically heated by boiling water, hot tap water or by heating in a microwave. Beyond using these compresses during recovery from a procedure, these hot compress products can be used to reduce swelling and bruising resulting from any type of injury. Additionally, these compresses are highly effective for puffy eyes treatment, alleviation of tired eyes and headaches, relief from clogged sinuses due to colds and allergies, and first aid for burns and trauma.

But today, one doesn't need to disturb himself heating up water for a compress. One just plug this water compress pillow in, wait for 2-3 minutes and viola! You now have a hot compress, no leaks and very convenient to use. It also comes in different colors and designs.
