As you age, the collagen in your skin that gives it firmness and elasticity is lost. Starting around the age of 30, you begin producing less collagen, and your skin becomes thinner and less firm. One of the best ways to slow the signs of aging, like lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, is to increase collagen production. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer collagen induction and skin tightening with Forma treatment, available at our Washington, DC, metro area clinics.

What is Forma?

Optimas by InMode is a laser energy aesthetic platform that includes the Forma radiofrequency (RF) device. Forma utilizes RF thermal energy that is delivered deep into the targeted skin to stimulate collagen production. This non-invasive, non-painful treatment can be performed in about 30 minutes. No downtime or recovery is needed after the procedure – you can return to work or normal activities after your Forma treatment.

Non-Invasive Skin Tightening Treatment

Forma can create more youthful skin that is firmer with improved tone and texture. The RF energy is delivered to the skin through a wand after a conductive numbing gel is applied. This treatment can be used in multiple areas on the face and neck where there is evidence of wrinkling or sagging skin. Some of the most common areas where Forma skin tightening treatments are performed include:

  • Forehead and brow
  • Upper and lower eyelids
  • Cheeks and jawline
  • Neck

Forma skin tightening can achieve a non-surgical face, neck or eyelid lift by firming the targeted skin. The best results are achieved with a series of sessions held a few weeks apart over a couple of months. Patients often begin to see results within two weeks of their first session, but the final results can take three to four months to achieve.

If you want firmer, more youthful skin on your face or neck, Forma facial treatments may be right for you. To learn more about non-surgical skin tightening procedures using RF thermal energy, contact our aesthetics team at Maia Plastic Surgery.

Kerri L.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer and had a consultation with Dr. Maia, not only was her expertise evident, her compassion shown through as she walked us through the process. Thankfully, I felt very comfortable trusting her as I underwent reconstruction surgery. I am very happy with the results and highly respect and recommend Dr. Maia.

Dr Maia truly loves what she does. She is invested in making you the version of yourself you want to be. She listens attentively to what you want and makes relevant suggestions. She did not try to introduce anything unnecessary into my treatment plan. The results I achieved during my first treatment keeps me coming back. Her staff is excellent and works to accommodate your schedule. I have recommended Dr. Maia several times and each time I get the same positive feedback.

Selecting a surgeon: After having two children and weight fluctuations over the years I was left with complete loss of volume in my breasts. I had four consultations with other surgeons but after comparing their photos to Dr Maia’s and meeting her in person, I knew she was my doctor. We talked about my lifestyle - being a mom and a professional, I didn’t want to be too big, but I’m curvy so I didn’t want to go too small for my frame either. She let me try on sizes and once I selected she agreed it was a good fit for my frame. Post op recovery: I was a smoker and had quit prior to surgery but she was very honest and adamant in telling me how important it was that I did not smoke. (I honestly needed the lecture and the transparency about what could happen if I did start smoking before surgery and post-op.) Because I was formerly a pretty heavy smoker, it did cause some issues after surgery with wound closing and she was SO diligent and on top of it seeing me once and week and squeezing me in for appointments between surgeries and patients. She prescribed different things to address the would closure issues before they really became a problem. Being able to have text message access to the office was great when I had questions and she even accommodated my schedule when I couldn’t be seen in person to send progress photos so that she could check on me. 3 months post op: I’m so happy with the results of my surgery and am so glad I waited to find the right doctor. She’s an artist! They look natural, fit my body shape and they haven’t even fully “dropped and fluffed” yet. Would highly recommend… comparing her patient photos to other surgeons will end your search. I feel so much better in my body thanks to Dr Maia.

Justine A.

This is my second time at Dr. Maia’s office and I am so pleased with my experience here. The staff is so friendly and caring. Dr. Maia is the best Dr in the DMV area, she knows exactly what she is doing and you will be happy with the results! I am so glad I found her! I recommend anyone who’s looking for a very personable doctor to come and see her! Thank you Dr. Maia & staff!
