I didnt use any head band, they said ice but i used it like 1 time a day only. Well i looked like a baloon after 1 day but all swelling disapered after 2 days and i looked ok after that. The swelling doesnt hurt but you look like shit, was funny thought to look like a baloon.

The headband must be used to prevent edema in your forehead and around your eyes as it applies pressure onto your forehead. Applying icepacks on the forehead area help relieve any swelling as well...

I dont use headbands. My swelling prevention instructions are:

1. Ice

2. Elevation (includes sleeping in a somehow reclined position for 5 days.

3. Avoidance of forward head tilting (phone, laptop use unless reclined)

4. Reducing dose of steroids orally for the first 5 days.

5. Injected steroids mixed in the tumescent fluid. 

Swelling usually peaks day 3/4. So it is important to stick to the above for the first 5 days really.
