I bought the medium size Stages 1 & 2 according to the sizing chart. I will be using the Stage 1 for about another week. Its construction is sturdy and comfortable and the compression feels evenly distributed, which is important. I have been using an extra abdominal binder for additional support but that's a personal preference and not a serious objection

It is excellently engineered. Its selling point is that it has many times the number of micro-needles than other products of its kind, and along with the vibratory mechanism it feels gentle. As for the ultimate result, the smoothing out of my acne scars, well, only time will tell that.

Comfortable, soft without sagging. It was perfect for my post-op cosmetic surgery. I would however recommend that pillows or something similar be put under the knees to counteract the slight shear force that occurs when the body is at a slant

The fit of the compress to my face was quite good. I was worried the holes for eyes and nose would be in the wrong spot, but that wasn't a problem. I used it for post brow lift and rhinoplasty. The compress felt comfortable and soothing. Length of adequate coldness was about 20 minutes, which is par for the course for similar devices with the "blue gel". The smell of the plastic is a bit strong, but that may go away after a few uses, I hope. The plastic should not be placed directly on the skin. I used a paper towel, cutting out holes in the same places as the compress. The problem I had was with the velcro straps. Because my head and neck are not large, there wasn't enough velcro overlap. When lying down it did not matter, but on getting up I had to hold on to the compress to be sure it didn't fall off my face. SUGGESTIONS: 1) Either put a soft, gauze-like backing on the surface of the mask that is applied to the skin or sell the backing as separate gauze sheets with the holes cut out just like the compress. 2) Make the velcro strips longer so there is a large range of sizes that the strap will fit.

I got these a week after rhino and wish I had had them the moment I came out of surgery. The consistency of the gel is unique: soft, pliant, conforming and oh, so soothing. I agree with some of the other reviewers - there just has to be a better way than frozen peas! The trouble with peas is that you never know how many to use, they apply uneven pressure, and you have to secure them. This Swiss compress goes on evenly and immediately takes to the eye area and will not fall off even if you are upright, yet they do not squeeze. In addition, the compress has some therapeutic effects with the normal saline and imidazolidinyl urea.
