Skin loses elasticity with age, which is what allows lines, wrinkles and sagging to appear. Crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes, laxity around the jowls and drooping under the chin are common first signs of aging facial skin. While you cannot stop the aging process, there are med spa treatments to improve skin firmness and slow the appearance of aging skin. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer facial skin tightening treatments to improve skin elasticity at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.

One of the main reasons skin loses elasticity is waning levels of collagen. Starting in the twenties, the body can begin producing less collagen, impacting the volume and firmness of the skin. Over time, wrinkles begin to form, and the face loses its youthful firmness. In order to restore a more youthful, toned appearance without surgery, facial skin tightening treatments can be used. These sessions can increase collagen and improve the elasticity of the skin, helping smooth away lines and wrinkles while tightening the skin.

Minimally Invasive Skin Tightening

Skin tightening treatments use thermal energy to stimulate collagen production in the skin. Ultrasound or radiofrequency energy is directed to trouble areas through a hand-held device, heating the deeper layers of the skin. This procedure is minimally or non-invasive – it can be performed on a lunch break and usually takes less than an hour. A series of treatments is recommended to achieve the desired results over several months. As the levels of collagen increase, the skin tightens and firms, smoothing wrinkles and reshaping the face for a more youthful appearance.

If you have lines, wrinkles or the beginning stages of sagging skin, you may be an excellent candidate for facial skin tightening. To learn more, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery to schedule a skin rejuvenation consultation at our clinic in the Washington, DC, metro area.

Dr. Maia and her staff are incredibly professional and truly empathetic. They’ve done a beautiful job with the treatments that I’ve gotten and I look forward to coming to the office every single time.

Dr. Maia deserves more than 5-stars! I’m thrilled with my results and I’m less than 3 months post surgery. Dr. Maia is confident and kind, and not at all pushy like other plastic surgeons. I was overly impressed the morning of the procedure. The surgical and hospital staff know her well! They were ready for her and put me at ease while I was getting settled in the OR. I appreciate the team in Dr. Maia’s office for their patience and care. They are just as calm as Dr. Maia.

Mid 40s male who’s always had nasal breathing issues and a dorsal bump. I finally decided to do something about it with a septoplasty/rhinoplasty combo. I met with a few doctors but Dr. Maia stood out. She instilled confidence, and I’m extremely pleased with the results. The surgery was straight forward, and the swelling was surprisingly light. A week later the cast was off and I was on the short road to recovery. Honestly, if I had known it was this easy I would have done it earlier. Thanks Dr. Maia!


I recently had Dysport injected by NP Kristina, and I could not be happier with the outcome. I can already see some of the results few days post-injections! I love how quickly Dysport softens the wrinkles, without giving you the "frozen look". Just in time for the upcoming holidays! Earlier this year, I did 3 Morpheus-8 treatments to my face and neck, and I am CONSTANTLY being complimented on how good my skin looks. Worth every penny! I also had fillers injected by Dr. Maia and Kristina. Dr. Maia did my under-eye, which I am obsessed about... what a change! Kristina injected my lips, chin, jawline, and cheeks. My face looks more proportional and guess what.... I FINALLY HAVE A CHIN :) Thank you, Dr. Maia, Kristina, and the Team. You're the best. I will surely be back for more.

I had tummy tuck and muscle repair with Dr. Maia 3 months ago. I couldn't be happier. I am 44 and I got my 25 year old body back after tummy tuck with Dr. Maia. The initial consult was great. The surgery was fast. The post op care was excellent. Dr. Maia and team assured me that I had great post recovery and everything going okay. I had no complication whatsoever. The incission was very small and low which I love. She is amazing and caring surgeon. He teams are very responsive and wonderful. I am very happy with the result and everything.
