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.

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.
