Kybella Under-Chin Treatments

Dermatologist and Clinical professor Charles E. Crutchfield III, M.D. will be one of the first physicians in Minnesota to offer Kybella treatments, a new FDA-approved treatment to reduce the appearance of unsightly “double chins”. Kybella is a revolutionary, injectable treatment that safely and effectively dissolves unwanted fat under the chin without surgery.

Our clinic is currently taking contact information to notify interested patients as soon as it is available. Crutchfield Dermatology is excited that patients in the Twin Cities can now take advantage of this simple, in office, minimally-invasive procedure using Kybella to melt away their unwanted double chins.

According to the manufacturer of Kybella, Kythera Biopharmaceuticals, “Kybella is a naturally occurring molecule in the body that aids in the breakdown of dietary fat.” The Kybella medicine is injected into the submental area (fat below the chin), which allows the medicine to rupture the fat cell membranes and permanently destroy unwanted chin fat.

“In the past, I had specialty compounding pharmacies prepare the mixture for each patient as needed. Now I am very excited to offer this commercially-available preparation to patients who want to reduce their double chin without surgery. If my vast experience with over 16,000 lipodissolve treatments is any indication, this should be a convenient, safe, and effective treatment to significantly improve the way patients look and feel about themselves, “ says Dr. Crutchfield.

Side effects are mild and include brief swelling, bruising and tenderness. Downtime is not required. Each treatment session involves multiple small injections and the treatments are repeated monthly for 2-6 months for best results.

“The successful results in my lipodissolve patients were permanent. Since this contains the same active ingredient, I am optimistic the results will be long-lasting with Kybella, too.”
