Dr.Demetri Arnaoutakis is an active member of the American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He frequently travels to attend national conferences to perpetually advance his education and present his research. To date he has authored over 30 peer-reviewed publications and book chapters. Dr. Arnaoutakis chats with Haute Beauty about his new treatment for fat burn and skin tightening called FaceTite.

 

HB: What is FaceTite?

FaceTite is the latest breakthrough in non-surgical technology. It is an FDA-approved minimally-invasive treatment that burns fat and tightens sagging skin. This is a perfect treatment for those who are too young or just not quite ready for aggressive surgical rejuvenation.

HB: How does FaceTite work?

FaceTite can provide ‘mini-facelift’ results without the downtime and associated scars that come with surgery. It uses radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis to destroy fat cells under the skin. When performing FaceTite, Dr. Demetri inserts a small probe just underneath the surface of your skin. By activating the probe, he can then “melt” away excess fat with radiofrequency energy and then can suction it all away.

At the same time, radiofrequency energy is applied to the outside of the skin to offer skin tightening. The skin resurfacing tightens skin and enhances your overall complexion by reducing skin irregularities. It can also significantly improves acne scarring if present.

HB: Who is the best candidate for this procedure?

Both men and women who want the effects of a facelift, but are not quite ready to undergo major surgery are good candidates for FaceTite. If you have skin laxity and underlying fat tissue, then you are likely a good candidate. We have also seen significant improvement for patients who have acne scarring and poor skin texture. FaceTite can help you look your very best!

HB: What does recovery look like?

Recovery from FaceTite is much quicker than surgery. You can expect to need just a couple of days of downtime following the procedure.  All our patients go home right after the procedure and resume regular activities within about two to three days.
