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.
CoolSculpting and Ultherapy for Double Chin / Turkey Neck?

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!
CoolSculpting and Ultherapy for Double Chin Combo Treatment!
I love this as a combination treatment!
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.

Coolsculpting & Ultherapy
The combination of Coolsculpting and Ultherapy is highly recommended as they each play a role in slimming and rejuvenating the neck.
The CoolSculpting Mini is designed specifically to target the double chin or submental fat. This is a very stubborn area that may not be reduced by diet and exercise. Once the fat has been frozen the cells die and are gone forever.
If there is laxity after the fat has been removed under the chin - then Ultherapy is the perfect treatment to tighten the skin.
Coolsculpting freezes away the fat, while Ultherapy tightens and lifts the area that may have potentially sagged after the fat removal.

Coolsculpting and Ulthera combo...
CoolSculpting and Ultherapy is a good combination in the right candidate
Kybella is the best option for double chin
Kybella injection, also known as ATX-101, is the first and only FDA-approved injectable drug that contours and improves the appearance of submental fullness due to submental fat. Kybella is indicated for improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe convexity or fullness associated with submental fat in adults. The safe and effective use of Kybella for the treatment of subcutaneous fat outside the submental region has not been established and isnot recommended.
Double chin options
Non surgical options include:
1) Kybella to dissolve the fatty tissue in the submental area
2) Cool-mini treatment from Coolsculpting to target the same area
3) Adding a skin tightening device such as Ulthera or Profound to the neck tissue in conjunction with the one of the above to further tighten the skin.
Surgical options include:
1) Straight liposuction which would reduce the pinchable fat under the chin
2) Anterior neck lift with liposuction which would also allow for tightening of the platysmal muscles in the midline to allow for tighter neck contour
3) Traditional neck lift which does the same as 2) but also removes some excess skin in the neck.
I would recommend that you visit with a board certified plastic surgeon who offers the various options above to discuss the pros/cons of each option and help you decide which is the best for you.
Treatment for double chin with 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.
