The latest patch won’t help you stop smoking or alleviate menopause symptoms, but it may make recovery after surgery more comfortable.
The ActiPatch emits a pulsing electromagnetic field that, when applied to areas treated by facial, breast and other plastic surgery procedures, helps reduce swelling-and possibly pain. Studies have shown improved wound healing in animals treated with the patch, and a human study of 21 patients revealed less swelling after eyelid surgery, prompting the FDA to clear ActiPatch for this use.
Another study of 60 facial plastic surgery patients shows 30% to 50% fewer days of swelling. Additionally, surgeons have started using ActiPatch after tummy tucks and breast procedures.
Ask your doctor if ActiPatch is appropriate after your surgery, and for more information, visit the maker’s website at bioelectronicscorp.com.
