CoolSculpting and Ultherapy for Double Chin / Turkey Neck?

Would a Combination of Zeltiq and Ultherapy Be a Good Option for a Non-surgical Double Chin/turkey Wattle Reduction? Looking for the best nonsurgical combination of treatments for a turkey wattle/ non-defined jawline. 25 year old female that is 30 pounds over weight.

Ulthera is effective but liposuction is even more effective!

zeltiq or coolsculpting cannot be used on the neck.  Ulthera and thermage canboth be used but I favor Ulthera.  liposuction under the chin is still the most effective procedure.

Ultherapy and SmartLipo for Double Chin / Turkey Neck

There is no handpiece available with either Zeltiq (Coolsculpt) or Liposonix to treat the neck area. The best combination would be Ultherapy first to kick start muscle and skin tightening followed by SmartLipo neck liposuction to finish off the excess fat pads and to maximize skin tightening and neck contouring.

Ultherapy and zeltiq coolsculpting

ultherapy may help but there is no applicator currently on the market from Zeltiq that would allow CoolSculpting on the neck area. It may be forthcoming, but I have not heard details from a reliable source as to the applications of the next applicator.

addendum, Sep 2015
We now have a CoolSculpting applicator just for the double chin of the neck fat ! It works very well. Some patients may need three applicators if their fat extends sideways markedly, while focal fat pads that are concentrated in the midline of the neck may only need one applicator.  Treatment may consist of only one treatment, but some patients may benefit by having a second treatment with CoolSculpting in two months. There is very little, if any, downtime with this procedure.

Zeltiq and the neck

There is no current handpiece for Zeltiq to be performed on the neck, so this is not an option.  Zeltiq is currently performed on the abdomen, back, love handles/muffin top.

At age 25, please lose the extra 30 pounds before considering any cosmetic therapies

The treatments you have mentioned tend to be unimpressive in my opinion but they are expensive and painful.  If you have good skin, are young, and know you are 30 pounds overweight, the only reasonable thing to do is to lose the weight.  You might be surprised how much you like your neck!

Treatment for double chin with ATX 101

Soon, the FDA will clear a chemical for clearance of double chins - ATX 101

Ultherapy has advantages as it uses imaging to deliver targeted high intensity 'focused' ultrasound.

The results of skin tightening will be most apparent at 6 months.

We have performed hundreds of Ultherapy procedures in our Williamsville, NY office.
