“Patient Comfort and Safety is vital when it comes to any aesthetic procedure, but especially critical for fillers. The ArTek Spot contact cooling system is used routinely in our practice to enhance patient comfort and decrease side effects such as bruising.”

"Patient comfort is one of the most important aspects of any aesthetic procedure. We use the ArTek Spot system routinely in our practice to reduce the pain and bruising normally associated with injectable fillers and a variety of laser treatments. It's very effective and a more professional alternative to ice cubes -- our patients love it."

“We utilize the ArTek Air chiller in our practice nearly every day to minimize pain levels for our patients. This is a great device and is extremely effective at minimizing pain and keeping our patients comfortable during their procedure.”

- Thermoelectric technology is a safer, more convenient and precise method of providing cooling and controlling temperature for dermal cooling as opposed to using icepacks, ice cubes or ice rollers. The ArTek Spot can operate and hold your programmed set temperature (from 33°F to 50°F) 24 hours a day with no need to defrost or shut down.
- No consumables or ice is required
- Ice applied directly to the skin can be painful and potentially damaging to the patient.
- Ice-based coolers begin to warm up and lose their thermal performance the moment they are removed from the freezer.
