(NBC) -

A drug that will help melt away the fat that causes a double chin gets clearance from the FDA. "Kybella" is admitted by injection and is made up of substances that typically help dissolve fat.

That said, regulators say it should not be used on other areas of the body. The drug not only destroys fat cells, it can kill other cells. Side effects can include nerve damage, jaw problems and trouble swallowing.
