Before & After Photos

What is CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting was developed using the science of cryolipolysis, which was first discovered by Harvard Scientists in 2008. Their study revealed that fat cells die off when exposed to freezing temperatures. The cold of the CoolSculpting treatment affects subcutaneous fat stores, but leaves surrounding tissues unaffected. This makes it an ideal option for people who struggle to shrink their stubborn fat  without undergoing an invasive procedure, like liposuction surgery.

CoolSculpting is an amazing non-invasive fat elimination technology.

The average CoolSculpting session lasts for less than 45 minutes and successfully breaks down roughly 25 to 50% of fat in a targeted area.* Once the fat cells are broken down, the body disposes of them naturally through the lymphatic system. 

The body breaks down your fat over the weeks following your CoolSculpting treatment. There is no downtime, no uncomfortable recovery, and no risk of scarring with CoolSculpting. You simply come into ArtfulSurgery and relax!

What is Neck CoolSculpting?

CoolSculpting has been FDA-approved to treat the upper neck and chin area. CoolSculpting is becoming an increasingly popular solution for patients who are frustrated by stubborn submental fat.*

If you have an active lifestyle and balanced diet, but still have fat under your jaw and chin, CoolSculpting will diminish your submental fat and deliver a slimmer, smoother jawline.*  

A double chin will detract from anyone’s appearance! As we age, gravity can pull the fat cells in the chin lower. This will make any weight gain in that area especially prominent and problematic. Once this fat develops, it is often stubborn and unresponsive to traditional weight loss efforts. CoolSculpting will target and reduce the fat cells under your chin to improve your profile and facial contour.* Now you can get rid of your double chin, in less than an hour, thanks to CoolSculpting!*
