Kybella Under-Chin Treatments

Neck jowls sagging treatments

No More Sagging "Jowls" Chin

Dermatologist Charles E. Crutchfield III, M.D. will be the first in Minnesota to offer Kybella treatments, a new FDA-approved treatment to reduce the appearance of unsightly "double chins." There's no reason you have to have sagging jowls, a sagging chin, or sagging skin along your jaw line. You can have facial jowls that are firm and not sagging. Best of all you can get them without surgery.

First Kybella Provider in MN

Clinical professor and board-certified dermatologist, Charles E. Crutchfield III, M.D., announced that Crutchfield Dermatology in St. Paul-Minneapolis, Minnesota will be the first to offer the new FDA-approved Kybella, a drug that will eliminate double chins without surgery. Kybella is a revolutionary, injectable treatment that safely and effectively dissolves unwanted fat under the chin.

First Provider In MN

Charles E. Crutchfield III M.D., Medical Director of Eagan, MN-based Crutchfield Dermatology will be the first to offer the latest non-surgical treatment to reduce the appearance of underchin fullness. Dr. Crutchfield is board-certified in dermatology and is a clinical professor of dermatology at the University of Minnesota Medical School. He has more experience using injectable medications to dissolve unwanted under chin fat than anyone in the United States and has published a landmark scientific paper on "lipodissolve," a safe, effective technique using injectable medicines for the treatment of double chins and other areas or unwanted fat. Lipodissolve utilizes phosphatidyl choline and deoxycholate, the FDA-approved active in Kybella, to to dissolve unwanted under-chin fat. The important paper details the safe and effective results in the treatment of thousands of patients. In fact, Dr. Crutchfield has modified the injection technique and uses the term Kybella Ultra.

The Best At Kybella

Dr. Crutchfield is the first in Minnesota to offer such treatments and will again be the first to offer the new, FDA-approved Kybella treatments to treat the dreaded 'double chins.' In the past, patients could only seek surgical intervention or liposuction to treat under-chin fullness. Since Crutchfield Dermatology informed Kybella that Dr. Crutchfield was prepared to be the first in Minnesota to utilize the treatment, the clinic phones have been ringing off the hook. The 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.

What Is Kybella?

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.

The New Lipo

"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.

Kybella Side Effects

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 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."

Patient Testimonials

I had these deep lines on my cheeks for several years. They made me look much older than I am and were a source of embarrassment. In a matter of minutes, with a Restylane treatment, they almost disappeared. I am getting married in February of 2004 and I can't express how happy I am- call the photographer!
R.L., St. Paul, MN

I had been looking at this deep groove between my eyebrows for 12 years. I absolutely hated it. Botox made it better, but did not eliminate it. One quick Restylane treatment and it was all gone, a dream come true!
L.H., Minneapolis

For years I had deep wrinkles at the corners of my mouth. It made me look like I was constantly frowning. When I found out there was a quick and easy treatment, I could hardly believe it. I came into the office feeling bad about how my mouth looked, and left the office feeling great about myself and my new look
