Compression will help you reduce dynamic range, at least that is the intended function of compression.

Beyond that, each compressor has its own sound. Once you know the sound of your compressors you can employ them in a way that adds creative “color.”

Compression will not add warmth/body where there is none; that should already be present in the recorded tracks. But if you take the time to learn how to use compression, it is a powerful tool and can help you craft more polished sounding mixes.
