CoolSculpting for Double Chin?

CoolSculpting is not yet for the face or neck
Addendum, Sep 2015.
CoolSculpting Mini is now done on the neck and has gained FDA clearance! This small applicator fits perfectly on the neck, and in one treatment, or two, signficant fat can be reduced in the neck. Some patients need only one applicator, while others can benefit from three applicators per session. EAch applicator takes one hour of treatment, but unlike Kybella, there is no need for injections of local anesthetic. This is a very well tolerated procedure.

As always, proper diet and exercise will help produce good and lasting results.
CoolMini has been out now since the end of 2015

CoolSculpt Mini provides long lasting reduction of submental fullness
We offer the Cool mini as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for the right candidate. We also offer Kybella and often use the two to develop customized surgical alternative to surgical options. We are currently offering a package of 2 CoolSulpt Mini treatments for $2000.00. The treatments are separated by 4-6 weeks. If there is mild to moderate skin laxity, combining the treatment with Ultherapy is an option. I would visit with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area who offers all these options to discuss what is best for you.

Double Chin - non-surgical options
If you are looking soley for a non-surgical solution, I am finding that the combination of Kybella or Coolsculpting Mini to reduce the sub mental fullness and an energy device to tighten the skin are among the best non-surgical combinations to help your neck concerns.
Kybella is an injection procedure that dissolves the fat an may require between 2-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. There is some swelling and bruising potential, with the greatest amount with the first treatment.
The Coolsculpting mini procedure cools the fatty tissue under the submental area and also reduces the fatty tissue under the chin.
As far as energy devices, I would recommend Ulthera if you are looking for something with no downtime, or Profound if you could tolerate some downtime. Ulthera is an ultrasound based energy that heats the underlying tissue and stimulates collagen in response. Profound is a radio frequency microneedling device that allows for the creation of Elastin, collagen and hyaluronic acid and hence restores some of the lost elasticity in the neck. It has more visible downtime with the possibility of some swelling and bruising that diminishes in about a weeks time.
Surgical options are also very rewarding and include liposuction or neck lift. I would recommend visiting with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to help you discuss your options in more detail.
