Almost everyone has acne breakouts, especially during the teen and early adult years. Larger pimples can cause scarring that impacts the complexion of the skin for many years. Acne scars can leave indents and discolorations that can affect the appearance and self-confidence of the individual. As part of our med spa services at Maia Plastic Surgery, we offer effective acne scar treatments that can diminish these skin flaws at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.

Acne scars can create pitting in the skin, known as ice pick scarring. This scarring changes the texture of the skin, and cannot be hidden, even with makeup. Acne can also cause pigment changes that result in darker spots or scars on the skin. Scars are difficult to remove completely, but you can vastly improve the texture and tone of acne-scarred skin with certain medical skin treatments.

Cosmetic Procedures for Acne Scar Removal

Depending on the severity and type of acne scars, several cosmetic procedures can improve the appearance of the skin. Laser skin treatments can be used to reduce pigmentations in dark acne scars, fading them away and creating even skin tone. Dermabrasion treatments can exfoliate the skin and smooth the texture. We also have collagen induction treatments that can help improve the tone and texture of the skin to fade acne scarring. Our med spa treatment professionals at Maia Plastic Surgery can determine the best acne scar treatments to fade discolorations and smooth indents on the skin for a better complexion.

Most acne scar treatments are non-invasive and require little to no downtime after the procedure. Your skin can appear smoother and healthier, without the leftover indents or dark scars from old acne breakouts.

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.
