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.

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.
