Are you seeking great microneedling provider near the Bethesda area? Young skin is resilient, firm and radiant with better tone and texture than older skin. One of the significant differences is the level of collagen in the skin. As you get older, the levels of elastin and collagen in the skin decrease. This can result in thinner, looser skin that is prone to sagging, lines and wrinkles. Microneedling is a non-invasive skin treatment that can stimulate or induce collagen production for more youthful skin. Maia Plastic Surgery offers microneedling treatment at our clinic near Chevy Chase, MD, near Bethesda, MD.

What is microneedling treatment? Simply put, microneedling uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin for collagen induction therapy, or CIT. When the skin is wounded, the body initiates more collagen production to heal and repair the skin. With microneedling, many small punctures in the skin are made in the treatment area to spur this healing response. The needles are so small that they do not damage the skin, yet collagen is still produced. The treatment is not painful and does not require downtime after the procedure – it can usually be performed in less than an hour in our clinic.

Collagen Induction Therapy for Youthful Skin

The benefit of microneedling is higher levels of collagen in the skin. This can firm and tighten the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It can also repair damage to the skin and minimize flaws like discolorations or scars. Overall, the skin can appear more youthful, firm and radiant with regular microneedling sessions. Dr. Maia and our team can perform professional microneedling CIT sessions to rejuvenate your skin. This procedure can be combined with other procedures to enhance the effects of plastic surgery or cosmetic treatments.

You cannot stop the aging process, but it is possible to slow the evidence of aging in your skin. If you are interested in learning more about microneedling or collagen induction therapy, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery near the Bethesda 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.
