As you get older, your skin changes. Age or sun spots can appear, your complexion can become dull, and lines or wrinkles can form around your features. Both genetics and lifestyle factors can impact how quickly your skin ages. While you cannot stop the aging process, there are skin treatments that can slow the noticeable effects on your face. At Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer face laser skin resurfacing at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.

Laser skin resurfacing can dramatically improve sun-damaged or aging skin. There are different types of laser treatments – some focus on removing the top layer of damaged skin while others only stimulate deeper layers of skin to form new collagen. Both can help increase collagen levels in the skin and result in more youthful skin with fewer wrinkles, fading of scars, and better overall tone or texture. The laser light energy can impact the targeted skin cells, even deep below the surface, to stimulate healing and new collagen production.

Reduce Facial Wrinkles and Age Spots

Laser skin resurfacing can be used at any age to eliminate certain flaws on the skin. Young adults can enjoy the benefits of fading acne scars and evening the skin tone. As you get older, facial laser skin resurfacing can reduce facial wrinkles, sun damage and age spots, rejuvenating the tone and firmness of the skin. The amount of recovery or downtime needed depends on the type of laser treatment used. CO2 laser skin resurfacing can remove the top layer of the skin and stimulate deeper layers for collagen production, requiring some downtime after treatment. Other non-ablative laser treatments do not affect the top layer of skin and need no recovery after treatment.

If you have facial skin flaws like wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring or age spots, face laser skin resurfacing may be right for you. Contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery in the Washington, DC, metro area to schedule a skin treatment consultation.

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!
