If there was ever a time of year when you feel you've got that extra unwanted chin, it's around the holiday. A solution could be on its way.

French ingredients manufacturer, Sederma, has come up with something that it calls Ovaliss that it claims will reduce a double chin. In a trial, 25 women applied a serum containing 2.5% Ovaliss over 56 days. Apparently 88% noticed a significant reduction in fatty tissue.

Sederma has yet to sign up a cosmetic company to make a product based on this ingredient.
