Nursing Beyond the Vital Signs

Nursing is so much more than simply popping a thermometer in a patient's mouth or recording a blood pressure. In my time as a nurse, I have participated in life saving efforts when time was critical, I have held a mother's hands when her newborn baby was being prepped for surgery, and I have looked into the terrified eyes of an elderly person in pain. Nurses literally go into battle, serving in military operations all over the world. They also learn and implement the latest in medical technology. This blog is to highlight nurses and prove that they deserve respect and appreciation for all that they do.

3 Great Places On Your Body To Have CoolSculpting Performed

CoolSculpting is a state-of-the-art technology designed to spot reduce fat--permanently. Using machines that emit a supercooled response, these systems freeze fat under the skin, and the body removes the damaged cells through the lymph system. Here are three great places on your body to have CoolSculpting performed, and why you won't regret investing in yourself. 

1. Thighs

If tend to store a lot of fat in your thighs, it can be difficult to find pants that fit just right, or to squeeze into a work uniform. However, CoolSculpting can be performed on both the inner and outer thighs, making it fast and easy to slim those areas down. 

When having CoolSculpting performed on your thighs, keep in mind that the process may need to be repeated more than once for optimal results. Additionally, remember that it may take weeks to see a result, so be patient with your progress. 

2. Upper Arms 

Fat accumulations along your upper arms can impact your body profile, while also creating a problem with "bat wings." If you waive, raise your hand frequently, or like to wear tank tops, extra fat can create a flabby, aged look. 

CoolSculpting can be performed in this area to give your arms a more refined, toned appearance. When having upper arm CoolSculpting, keep in mind that shirts may start to fit a little looser in the sleeve area. 

3. Under Your Chin 

If you completely cringe at the thought of having a double chin, CoolSculpting may be the answer you have been looking for. After attaching the tool to your lower jawline, the system can work to freeze away the fat, resulting in a more defined jawline. 

Before you go in for jawline CoolSculpting, take a before picture from the front and the side. That way, as you gradually lose fat from those areas, you will be able to see the difference. Take a new photo every week so you can track your progression. 

During CoolSculpting treatment, you will be able stay warm with heated blankets and entertainment like television. Some CoolSculpting centers even offer healthy snacks and drinks, giving CoolSculpting a spa-like experience.

If you are thinking about having CoolSculpting performed, work with a team that has experience performing the procedure. Talk with the technicians and the owners of the business about their track record, policies, and past customer reviews. Only work with a team of professionals who have a great reputation, and always shop around.
