Collagen Induction Therapies

Natural collagen fibers perform the vital role of holding the skin firmly and keeping it supple and volumized. However, aging and other factors will cause the depletion of collagen, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. The sunny news is that you can stimulate the generation of fresh collagen in the affected skin sites with advanced, minimally invasive collagen induction therapies.

The Virginia Institute of Plastic Surgery (VIPS), led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton M. Sundin and Dr. Reps B. Sundin, provides collagen induction therapies, such as Sculptra, Renuva, Nano fat grafting, and Hyper Diluted Radiesse to patients in Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and surrounding locations.


Sculptra Aesthetic is one of the more potent dermal filler injections, which can add volume to thinning face and cheeks to restore a fuller, rounder looking face. The treatment can also be used to trigger the formation of new collagen fibers in certain other body areas to continually improve the skin volume from within for long-lasting results. Sculptra collagen induction therapy can work well in the following areas:

Face: Sculptra cosmetic filler gel will fill and smooth out severe wrinkles and creases, marionette lines and conspicuous nasolabial folds. It will volumize the mid-face and will add definition to the cheek contours. Chin wrinkles and mild jowling in the face can also be corrected with Sculptra injections. Hands and Chest: These two areas, apart from the face, are often more exposed to sun, wind, and other elements. Sculptra injection therapy can work effectively to volumize the thinning skin in the back of your hands as well as enhance the soft, V-shaped tissue area in your chest. Buttocks: Sculptra can work as an innovative non-surgical collagen induction therapy to boost the volume in your buttocks. Popularly known as a Sculptra “butt lift,” this filler treatment will improve the contours and texture in your backside skin. With new collagen formation, you will have shapelier and rounder buttocks.

Nano Fat Grafting

Nano fat grafting is revolutionizing the cosmetic body and face contouring field as a minimally invasive collagen induction therapy. Poorly defined contours, volume loss, and wrinkles can be successfully addressed with nano fat grafting technique.

The procedure utilizes a tiny matrix of stem cells along with a stromal vascular fraction to deliver the maximum benefits of growth factors and regenerative elements. At the same time, it induces the production of fresh collagen and elastin fibers in the treated areas for natural looking, sustainable outcomes.

Renuva Allograft

Renuva allograft fat transfer technique is based on the cutting edge adipose matrix technology. This advanced collagen induction therapy is designed to increase skin volume to restore a youthful and desirable appearance in the areas where fat transfer is performed.

What differentiates Renuva from traditional fat transfer procedures is that the allograft tissue is received from outside donors. This makes the procedure less invasive because no liposuction is required. The donor tissue is directly injected into the targeted areas to form an adipose matrix. Renuva allograft along with new collagen fibers creates a scaffolding to support the thinning or sagging skin.

Hyper Diluted Radiesse

Collagen protein breakdown can cause the skin in your face, hands, and other body areas to become loose or wrinkled. Hyper Diluted Radiesse is a safe and effective collagen induction therapy that will replenish the collagen fibers in depleted areas of your skin to restore a youthful look.

Large surface areas, such as the buttocks, chest, hands, and neck can be treated effectively with Hyper Diluted Radiesse injections. Cosmetic surgeons at VIPS receive patients from Richmond, Fredericksburg, Northern Virginia, and nearby areas for safe and proven collagen induction therapies.
