The Hilotherm machine is basically a machine to cool water to a specific temperature. The water is then circulated in small tubes like capillaries around a pad that is applied to the skin over a surgical site. The temperature of the circulating water can be adjusted for comfort. Around the face these special pads are disposable
The machine requires distilled water in its reservoir to work. The reservoir will be topped up as it is given to you by the practice staff. You should not need to top up the water reservoir but if you do, please only use the water provided in the carry bag.
The practice staff will also attach the special pad onto the machine to check it and show you how to apply it, you should not need to detach the pad. If you do it can be reconnected onto the blue tubes with the click fit connector.
