CoolMini is indicated for the submental or under the chin fat. From looking at your photos, you would not be a good candidate. I would recommend some liposuction to the jowl area and some mid face filler.
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 is great for double chin but not for treatment of jowls .
Coolsculpting is an excellent form of non-invasive fat reduction for the right patient. Some applicators take 1 or 2 hours but the new advantage applicators take only 35 minutes and have significantly less risk for delayed onset pain (especially in the abdomen). Results are seen at 2 months and typically 1-3 treatments will be necessary on each area to achieve ideal results. The number of treatments depends on the amount of fat there and the patient's goals. There is not downtime and the results can be impressive in the right patient. We also use the Zimmer Z-wave for improved patient comfort and added results. The best candidates are those who are in pretty good shape with areas of stubborn fat that won't go away no matter what.

Cool mini or Kybella
I have used both the Cool mini and Kybella for young patients such as yourself. Both work very well to help treat this condition. Both will provide some tightening as well. The best skin tightening will happen from Thermage and not Ulthera. I suggest you consult an expert in the field. Best, Dr. Green
Cool mini - not best treatment for jowls
A lower facelift would be the most effective treatment to help address this region. Your alternatives would be to combine fillers with other energy devices like Profound, a micro needling radiofrequency treatment that also restores some elastin into the tissues.
