If you are in need of acne scar removal near the Bethesda area, turn to Maia Plastic Surgery near Chevy Chase, MD. 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 near the Bethesda, MD, area 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 near the Bethesda, MD, 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.

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.
