Does metal inside one's body permit for Exilis, Coolsculpting or Vanquish treatments?

Flow of energy
As you have some metalwork so close to the spine, I would avoid having any radio frequency treatments i.e. Exilis or Vanquish. Coolsculpting may be an option but you won't be able to tighten the skin.
Your other options include;
- Focused ultrasound - a trained practitioner would have to advise you in regards to this and your retainer
- Fat dissolving injections - this may reduce your double chin without requiring any energy emitting treatment
Hope this helps
