Your body may begin producing less collagen in the skin, starting as early as your twenties. Collagen is vital for youthful volume, firmness and elasticity. Lower levels of collagen impact skin aging, resulting in thinner skin with less elasticity. Wrinkles can form, and the skin may begin to sag. Collagen induction therapy, or CIT, stimulates facial collagen, creating more youthful, firm skin. Our team at Maia Plastic Surgery offers collagen induction therapy at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.

Increasing collagen in the skin can create more youthful skin. Fine lines and wrinkles can diminish, discolorations and scars can fade, and sun damage can dissipate. The skin’s elasticity improves for a tighter, firmer appearance, more like your skin was when you were younger.

How To Stimulate Facial Collagen

You may see many products that claim to add collagen to the skin through topical creams and serums. The best way to increase collagen in the skin is to stimulate the production of this protein by the body. Collagen is needed to repair skin – when it is injured, collagen production increases to heal the wound. Collagen induction therapy uses this tool to “trick” the body into increasing collagen in the skin.

CIT methods include treatments that stimulate a healing response in the skin. Microneedling is a popular option, using tiny needles to penetrate the deeper layer of the skin without causing real damage. More collagen is produced to heal the micro-wounds, more each time the treatment is used. Other treatments that can result in collagen induction include certain laser, thermal or energy therapies that penetrate the skin and trigger a healing response.

Collagen induction therapy can help your skin look more youthful without surgery – it can also be combined with other treatments or even facial plastic surgery to improve your aesthetic results.

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.
