Compression mask for postoperative cooling patient's soft facial tissue

FIELD: medicine.

SUBSTANCE: invention relates to a medical technique, namely to a compression mask for post-operative cooling of the soft tissues of a patient's face. Mask body with slots for the eyes, mouth and nose of the patient is made of 0.5–2.0 mm thick from a biocompatible and non-toxic polymeric material. Configuration of the mask body is modeled on the results of a pre-made computed tomography, a 3D photographic image of the patient's soft tissue, and also on the basis of the model created and produced using printing on a 3D printer with the boundaries of the postoperative area of the patient's face soft tissues. Mask is equipped with the means of fastening and fixing it on the head of the operated patient in the form of an elastic fastening strap, which is regulated by the degree of compression pressure on the surface of the soft tissues of the patient's face. Inner body surface of the compression mask is equipped with a cooling system of the surface of the operated patient's face soft tissues. Cooling system is made in the form of a continuous and curved mask placed vertically on the inner surface of the body without intersecting the serpentine branches with rounded passages of the cooling tube with the supply inlet and outlet of the cooling liquid or gaseous. Cooling tubes are made of biocompatible and non-toxic polymeric tubular material with an outer diameter of 2–3 mm with the distances between two adjacent branches of the cooling tube from 5 to 8 mm.

SUBSTANCE: method includes carrying out general hydrodynamic massage (GHDM), hydrodynamic massage of the hair surface of the head, gut lavage, psychotherapy. GHDM and hydrodynamic massage of the hair surface of the head are carried out by means of a nozzle, which provides the supply of water by a water funnel principle. GHDM procedures are carried out 3 days running with the following one-day break. During massage the entire body surface, including the face, is treated by massage movements. Procedures of hydrodynamic massage of the head hair surface, including the zones with impaired hair growth, are carried out before GHDM and the gut lavage procedure. During massage, first, the entire area of the head hair surface is massaged, then point influence on alopecia zones is performed, holding the nozzle in these zones for 5-10 seconds. Duration of the influence on one zone of alopecia during one procedure constitutes not less than 20 seconds. Massage is carried out before GHDM and the gut lavage procedure. The procedure of gut lavage is carried out on the days, when GHDM is not performed. Psychotherapy is carried out in the form of music therapy, realised at the background of GHDM, hydrodynamic massage of the head hair surface and gut lavage. Carrying out GHDM is accompanied by music therapy of a relaxing nature, and carrying out hydrodynamic massage of the head hair surface and carrying out gut lavage is accompanied by music of a tonic nature. The course of the complex influence is carried out for not less than 18 days, starting from hydrodynamic massage procedures.

EFFECT: recovery of hair-covering due to the improvement of microcirculation of the hair part of the head, increased trophism of hair follicles, acceleration of reparative processes, and an increase of the immune system activity.
