Knee fat and Coolsculpting
As long as there is pinchable fat, then may be possible to treat this area with the CoolMini hand piece . I advise to have an in person consult with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
Inner knee cool sculpting
Yes, the cool mini can be used here, it just depends on the goals you have. I have found that most clients are glad to have tried it however it doesn't get the results that a liposuction surgery would get. The cool mini is small and made for the chin but used on other areas like this. I would seek a consult, ask about their experience and decide if you think the money is worth trying it. Best of Luck
The CoolMini applicator is a great option for for subcutaneous fat on areas with smaller pockets of fat. Orginally created for submental fullness, the Cool Mini is now being used to treat other areas of fat.

CoolSculpting fat on inner side of the knee
CoolSculpting has FDA approval for fat reduction since 2010. CoolSculpting freezes the fat cells. Fat cells are more susceptible to damage by freezing than the other cells, (nerve, vessel, bone, etc.), around them. The fat cells die via a process called apoptosis, (programmed cell death). The number of fat cells are therefore reduced. This happens over a period of time, so the body is not overwhelmed with dead fat cells. The body will take these cells up, process them and excrete them, just as any other cell. The remnants are filtered through the liver, and then excreted eventually via stool. Knees can be a challenge with any modality. CoolSculpting has a specific applicator that has been used in this area with good results. We have had good experience with the skin snapping back. Each individual is different. See an experienced CoolSculpting practice, they will determine if you are a candidate. Moreover, would also consider seeing a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, who can give advice on both CoolSculpting and Liposuction.
