Acne breakouts are common during the teenage and early adult years. Unfortunately, even when acne flareups are in your past, your skin may still reveal evidence of acne problems. Acne scars, especially on the face, can impact the texture and tone of your skin. If you want to restore a smooth, evenly toned complexion, there are treatments available. We offer acne scar removal at Maia Plastic Surgery in Tysons Corner, VA, to improve your skin and self-confidence in your appearance.

Acne scarring can cause extensive damage to the skin. Some acne scars can leave indents or pockmarks in the skin (atrophic scarring); others may leave behind discolorations or blemishes. Both can affect your complexion and may need treatment to smooth or fade away. The good news is that most acne scar removal treatments are minimally invasive and can vastly improve the health and appearance of your skin.

Skin Treatments To Remove Acne Scarring

For darker pigmented acne scars, laser skin treatments can be an excellent tool to remove and fade discolored scar tissue. Laser treatments target darker pigmented skin cells that create blemishes on the skin. This can fade acne scars and promote healing of the skin to improve the tone and complexion.

For ice pick scarring or pockmarks caused by acne, skin resurfacing may be needed. This can also be accomplished with laser skin treatments – usually, CO2 skin resurfacing is used to remove the damaged top layer of skin. Dermabrasion treatments can also be useful for improving the skin surface. Other options for treating acne scarring include microneedling and chemical peels.

If you want to remove acne scarring and improve the appearance of your skin, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery in the Washington, DC area today to schedule your acne scar treatment consultation. We offer a wide variety of skin treatment options that can fade or smooth away the evidence of acne scars.

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!
