The revolutionary treatment, currently in the testing phase, promises to get rid of unsightly fat around the jaw line without have to resort to surgery or dieting, ABC News reported.

The procedure involves injecting a specially-formulated chemical, known as ATX-101, into the skin to kill off fat cells, known as "submental fat," or double chins.

The drug was a version of deoxycholic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the body to help destroy fat.

Manufacturers Kythera Biopharmaceuticals Inc said more than 90 per cent of those who tried the drug maintained a meaningful reduction of fat after two years.
