On the medical horizon, there are brilliant teenagers working on treatments for cancer and arsenic poisoning. But we also now have a drug that can dissolve your double chin. Yay?

The Dermatologic and Ophthalmic Drugs Advisory Committee recommended this week that the drug-a deoxycholic acid (DCA) injection-be approved by the FDA. If it is actually approved, it will be the first of its kind.

When injected, DCA can be used to destroy fat cell membranes, even in that familiar area of "submental fat," a.k.a. the classic double chin. When DCA-which our bodies make naturally in our intestines-is used in this way, the FDA considers it a new molecular entity. In two phase-three trials, participants received injections every four weeks for a maximum of six sessions, with 50 injections total. [For the full story head to Refinery29!]
