Small, dark spots on the skin are commonly a symptom of sun damage and skin aging. These discolorations are referred to as brown spots or sunspots. They usually appear on areas of the skin that are frequently exposed to the sun, like the face, hands or chest. Our team at Maia Plastic Surgery offers options for sunspot treatment to restore an even skin tone for a more youthful appearance at our clinic in Tysons Corner, VA.

Sunspots or brown spots on the face, hands or other areas are usually caused by sun damage. These collections of pigmented cells that are a result of UV ray exposure are not dangerous, but they can be undesirable on the skin. The appearance of these “age” spots is more common on individuals 40 or older, but they can begin earlier with certain skin types or more frequent sun exposure. The good news is that there are several skin treatments for brown spot removal.

Removing Brown or Age Spots

If you want to remove brown spots and even the tone of your skin, there are a few different approaches available. Laser treatments are very effective at fading sunspots – the laser energy can target the darker pigmented skin cells to remove them from the surface. Other therapies that can reduce the appearance of age spots include chemical peels, microneedling and dermabrasion, all available at Maia Plastic Surgery. The added benefit is that these treatments can also improve the overall firmness, texture and tone of the skin.

If you are looking for sunspot treatment that will leave your skin looking more youthful and attractive, contact us at Maia Plastic Surgery in Tysons Corner in the Washington, DC, metro area to book your appointment. We can schedule a skin treatment consultation with Dr. Maia to determine the best option to remove your brown spots and rejuvenate your skin.

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!
