Off label Coolsculpt mini use
I would not use Coolsculpt mini in areas it is not indicated. Most patients with jowls need skin tightening treatments not fat removal. Please see an experienced physician to discuss your options.
Cool Mini treats fat necks / double chins not jowls
I would not recommend jowl or cheek treatment with the CoolMini as the applicator is not designed architecturally to fit those areas and there can be temporary nerve weakness possibly despite it not being a surgical treatment or liposuction.

Off with the chin!
The Cool mini applicator has been around for a while now and results are stunning. The submental area can be done from jowls on each side, to simply the 'double chin' pocket, and yes with minimal side effects. Very few risks with using the mini when compared to other jaw/chin treatments, and no downtime following the procedure. Consider finding a Certified Preferred Crystal CoolSculpting Practice – the Preferred ‘Crystal’ distinction is given to select physicians based on the number of patients treated with CoolSculpting. Talk with others online who have had the procedure done, and ask questions such as you have done here. Hope this helps, goodluck in your decision.
Coolsculpting Mini Produces Improvement in Your Double Chin That Lasts
We offer the Cool mini as a non-surgical alternative to liposuction for the right candidate. For optimal results, 2 treatments are generally required. The treatments are separated by 4-6 weeks. If there is mild to moderate skin laxity, combining the treatment with Ultherapy is an option. We also offer Kybella and often use the 3 technologies to develop customized surgical alternative to surgical options. Coosculptin can not be used in the cheek or jowls. Although I would anticipate that you will have a significant improvement in you profile with Coolsculpting Mini, you may consider a neck lift for optimal improvement. I would visit with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area who offers all these options to discuss what is best for you. Best regards,Andrew Lyos MD, FACS
Cool mini off label uses
A physical exam would be needed to discuss the suitability of this as option for you in more detail.
A submental device will be out later this year
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
best of luck!

Coolsculpting for Neck
Coolsculpting is working on a mini-adaptor for the submental area of the face - the fat under the neck. This piece should address the areas that bother you. The applicator cannot fit into the other areas that you described. Kybella can be used in connection with these areas. In addition, Thermage is fabulous at tightening the skin under the neck, particularly the lower jaw, cheeks, and jowl area.
