Different Types of Mattresses and Their Qualities

November 18, 2013 in Uncategorized

A Sarasota mattress store will have mattresses of all kinds from many different manufacturers. There are air mattresses, green mattresses, latex foam mattresses, innerspring mattresses, and memory foam mattresses. An air mattress for your bed is not the same as the air mattress you use when you are camping that you pump up with air and throw your sleeping bag on. Some air mattresses can be adjusted to over 60 different levels of firmness. They come with a built-in air pumps, one for each side so that each of the sleepers on the bed can adjust their side separately from the other side. Air mattresses can be topped with latex foam or memory foam, and people find these mattress very comfortable.

There are green mattresses that are made from natural, sustainable materials. Most of the mattresses that are green are made with 100% rubber latex. There is usually a layer of firm foam in between two layers of softer foam. Green mattresses will usually cost much more than your standard mattresses, but for those who purchase them, they report that they are really good at contouring to the body and minimizing pressure points. Latex foam mattresses tend to be more firm than squishy. They are really good at conforming to the body and stopping movement in the mattress. 

Innerspring mattresses have coils that are individually wrapped so that when someone lies down on them the individual coils are compressed and the other coils in the bed remain in their original shape. These mattresses usually have nice mattress toppers on top of the coils, which makes them a very comfortable mattress to sleep on. Memory foam mattresses mold themselves to the body and create a comfortable and supportive place to sleep.

If you are going to bed without pain, and waking up in pain, you might need a new mattress. If your mattress is sagging in the middle, you definitely need a new mattress. The employees at a Sarasota mattress store can answer your questions about mattresses and you can try all of them out before you buy one. It is highly recommended that you lie down on each of the mattresses long enough to know which one suits you the best.

Is Liposuction Right for You?

October 9, 2013 in Uncategorized by Teresa

Liposuction is a popular form of cosmetic surgery designed to remove pockets of excess fat from the body. Although it shouldn’t be seen as an alternative to diet and exercise, it can be effective in removing areas of fat from fairly healthy people. It is a tool intended for sculpting the body, not for extreme weight loss, and the advertisements you may see on television or the Internet are often exaggerated. Many people who practice good diet and exercise habits still retain “problem areas” of fatty tissue despite their best efforts. These are generally the best suited for liposuction. Because it has become a popular procedure, liposuction is available all over the country at facilities like RejuvaYou Medical Spa. It’s typically performed on an outpatient basis and you should be able to return to your normal routine within a few days or weeks.

 

Preparing for Liposuction

 

Because there are many factors that can affect the liposuction procedure, it’s important to talk to your doctor and follow his directions to the letter before your surgery. Let him know about any serious illness you have or have had in the past, and inform him of any medications you’re currently taking. Certain medications, such as anticoagulants, can interfere with surgery or the recovery process, and should not be taken for several weeks before your surgery. Similarly, you shouldn’t smoke for about two months before your procedure, since this can interfere with your circulation and cause complications. Your doctor will let you know if you will be under general anesthesia during the procedure; if this is the case, you will be required to fast the morning of your surgery.

 

The Liposuction Procedure

 

During the surgery, the doctor will target specific areas of fat on your body to be removed. He may simply use suction to remove the fatty cells, or he may use additional techniques like laser or ultrasound to loosen the cells and make them easier to remove. Fatty deposits can be removed from just about anywhere on the body, but the procedure is most common on the abdomen, buttocks, arms, and legs. It is important that the doctor not damage the surrounding tissues during the procedure, which is one reason that large deposits of fat cannot be removed at once. The body must also retain a certain balance of water, which can be disrupted by the removal of too much tissue.

 

The Recovery Process

 

Most people who undergo liposuction go home the same day, although they should be confined to bed rest for a day or two. After your liposuction procedure, your doctor at RejuvaYou Medical Spa will wrap the area of the body that was treated. This helps prevent infection and reduces discomfort, but you will likely be sore for at least a week after your surgery. You will probably also continue to see fluid drain from the openings where the liposuction was performed. Doctors often leave these incisions open to allow the fluid to drain, even though this may create more of a scar after it heals. During this time, you’ll have to constantly change your bandages to keep the area clean and dry. Your doctor may also give you antibiotics to prevent infection at the incision site. It may still take several months for your skin to tighten over the treated area, since liposuction only removes fat—it doesn’t tighten the now loose skin above it.

How to Choose a Comforter for a Bed

August 27, 2013 in Uncategorized by Teresa

When the day has been long and the night is cold, a bedspread can be a great source of comfort as you lay down to rest. It’s little wonder why it’s called a “comforter.” It provides warmth and softness that your sheets cannot provide, so as soon as soon as your head hits the pillow, you can drift off into a soothing slumber. A bedspread is also a good place to rest on as you snack, talk with your friends, read a good book, and catch up on your latest shows. If you’re wondering what sort of comforter you should put on Burlington beds, follow these suggestions for bedspread shopping.

Practical Purposes

There are a few practical considerations to review before arriving at a decision. For one, you should have a budget thought out before you get tempted by pretty comforters that are out of your price range. Think about if you want to purchase a dust ruffle or pillow shams along with the comforter. Next, decide on dimensions. The bedspread should conform to the mattress size or should be larger than its size if the mattress is thicker or comes with a topper. If you have a memory foam mattress, you may need a lighter material for your comforter. Otherwise, you may become overheated. You should definitely consider your preferred nighttime temperature. Choose a material that’s easy on your skin. A down comforter is known for being soft and comfy, but it is generally more expensive and causes those with down allergies to suffer. Choose a bedspread that breathes well and is known for being durable and can withstand the washing machine and dryer. Covers with higher thread counts are soft but not as durable. Go for a 200- to 300-count comforter. Dense stitching indicates a durable comforter with even distribution of the filling.

Decorative Purposes

Burlington beds are the focal point of a room, so be sure you make a good choice when selecting a bedspread. The comforter can impact the design elements of the entire space. If you have an existing theme or decor already, make sure the bedspread will blend in with the existing design. If your walls are painted a certain color, bring a paint sample or paint card to the store with you so you can find a matching bed set. If you leave this sample at home, it may be difficult to determine an appropriate match. Some designers choose a bedspread that contrasts the existing design so the bed will pop out more. This may be hard to pull off, but if you have a flair for design, you can accomplish this bold look. If you intend to mix patterns, be sure they have a common color or a unifying element. Feel free to mix pieces together for an eclectic look that will be memorable.

The Perfect Mattress for the Perfect Sleep

August 13, 2013 in Uncategorized by Teresa

Sleep is important to your body. In fact, it’s so important that doctors typically recommend 8 hours of sleep every single day. Of course, if you’ve ever slept in poor conditions, you know how hard it is to find good rest. Visiting a Sarasota mattress store is important for that exact reason – because good sleep is hard enough to attain without having to suffer an uncomfortable mattress. 

 

Choosing the Perfect Mattress

 

In order to live a productive and happy existence, your body and brain will both require a certain amount of sleep every single day. In order to get the most effective rest possible, you need to find the absolute perfect mattress, suited specifically to your body, your sleeping style, and your personal preferences. You don’t want to just walk into a store and buy the first mattress that you see. Instead, you’ll want to consider a variety of factors when selecting the surface that you’ll be sleeping on.

 

  • Fitted to Your Body - Obviously, you want a mattress that is at least as tall and as wide as your body. However, fitting a mattress to your body is about much more than height and girth. You want to find a mattress which naturally compliments the curvature of your spine. Bring a friend along with you when you’re mattress shopping. When you lie down on a mattress in your natural sleeping position, ask your friend to check and see if your spine is curves or sags in an exaggerated manner. If it does, then this is not the right mattress for you.
  • Forget Thickness - There is a tendency in American culture to associate bigger with better. However, a thick mattress isn’t always the comfiest fit for your body. Be sure to try out a bunch of different mattress, not just the super thick ones. A thinner mattress might turn out to be the mattress to beat!
  • Take a Test Sleep - When you’re buying a car, you take it out for a little spin before you whip out your wallet. When you’re adding to your wardrobe, you try the clothes on in the store to see how they fit. The same principles applies to the purchase of a good mattress. You want to allow yourself a lot of time when mattress shopping, so that you can take twenty-minute “test naps” on a variety of different mattresses. Doing so will ensure that you don’t bring a new mattress to your home, only to find that you cannot get good rest on it.

 

Replacing Your Mattress

 

Once you have found the mattress that is right for you, the search is over, right? Wrong. Unfortunately, as comfortable and well-suited to sleep as your current mattress may be, these idyllic conditions won’t last forever. After about 8 years, time and pressure begin to take its toll on your mattress. The materials that made up your sleeping surface will begin to degrade and deteriorate. If you’re starting to wake up in pain in the morning, or even just a little grumpier than normal, than it’s time to visit a Sarasota mattress store and get a new mattress.

What to Do When You Need Garage Door Repairs

June 18, 2013 in Home Improvement by Teresa

garage-door-8The garage door is a special thing, the one thing you can count on every single suburban home having. It keeps your car from being stolen or vandalized, it houses your lawn equipment, bikes, and any other storage that can fit between your automobiles. Typically, it functions without much aesthetic use, although sometimes people get very creative, adding various stylistic elements, such as faux-windows or doors, to keep their door looking like the rest of their home. Regardless of what kind of door you have, and how decadent you get with it, when it breaks, it comes a big problem, and very quickly. After all, unless it breaks in a way that keeps the emergency opener intact, you can find yourself without access to your vehicles.
