Laser Skin Treatments


Excess unwanted hair, visible vessels, sun damage, rosacea, and scars all influence the appearance and beauty of skin. Our medically trained esthetician uses versatile laser skin treatments at the Med Spa at Renee Burke, MD, in Barrington, IL, to treat your skin conditions with the most advanced laser technology available from Cynosure.

These laser & light energy treatments are available only at a licensed physician’s office:

BBL and HALO Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Refresh the appearance of skin with BBL and HALO, the most powerful IPL skin rejuvenation treatments available. The Sciton laser system allows us to treat the appearance of a variety of skin concerns on the face and body, including:

  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity
  • Active acne and acne scarring
  • Unwanted hair
  • Unsightly veins

Contour TRL®

For patients seeking laser skin resurfacing, the Contour TRL laser system allows us to adjust the depth of treatment depending on their unique skin concerns and available recovery time.

The Contour TRL system includes several treatment options, ranging from least to most aggressive:

  • NanoLaserPeel™, the gentlest of the laser resurfacing options, goes deeper than microdermabrasion to reveal fresh, glowing skin.
  • MicroLaserPeel® goes deeper than the NanoLaserPeel and provides gentle skin resurfacing to improve skin’s texture, soften discoloration, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  • Contour TRL is the deepest laser resurfacing treatment that removes the outer layer of skin to address significant signs of sun damage and aging and reveal smoother, firmer skin.

Stretch Marks and Scars

Pregnancy, surgery, and trauma create wounds deep within the skin resulting in scars or stretch marks. Raised, discolored and irregularly textured scars or stretch marks can make you self-conscious, but with multiple, carefully customized treatments, we can minimize the appearance of new or mature scars and stretch marks. Over the course of treatment and time, scars become nearly undetectable. Treatment of scars and stretch marks is a process; the results you’ll ultimately see simply cannot be obtained with any other treatment. At-home skin care and diligent sun protection are essential to achieve and maintain your results.

Fractional Resurfacing with MOXI

Sciton’s newest technology, MOXI is finally offered in our Med Spa. This long-awaited treatment is the perfect solution for a gentler approach to radiant and smooth skin. MOXI is a fractional laser that creates microscopic tunnels in the skin that strengthen and firm the skin overall as they heal, while replacing damaged cells with fresh new ones. Over time, they produce a smoother, firmer, more even-textured, toned and hued complexion. Our laser specialists use MOXI to treat a variety of concerns, which include:

  • Sun damage
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Fine lines
  • Enlarged pores

MOXI is a mild laser treatment designed to address minor skin concerns to help reveal fresh, younger-looking skin with a few treatments. It can also be used to maintain results between or in conjunction with BBL and HALO laser skin rejuvenation treatments.

MOXI produces a visible change of appearance after 3 to 5 days of minor healing and downtime, your skin will continue to improve in the weeks following treatment. A series of 3 to 4 treatments spaced 3 weeks apart can produce remarkable results. It’s important to use quality skincare products at home and protect your skin from the sun to maintain your skin’s smoother, firmer, beautiful appearance.

Permanent Hair Reduction

Men and women can permanently reduce unwanted hair of nearly all colors and textures with little discomfort and no downtime. We customize a series of treatments based on your skin and hair type and texture, using the most advanced laser hair reduction technology available. It can greatly minimize unwanted hair—coarse and dark, or fine and fair—without damaging or changing the appearance or hue of your skin.

Treatment areas for women and men include:

  • Facial hair: brows, mustache, chin, beard, ears and neck
  • Body hair: chest, back, abdomen, arms, legs and hands
  • Bikini area

We offer package pricing to obtain your best outcomes. Refreshers and touch-ups for re-growth after past treatments also available.

ClearV® Laser Vein Treatments

Our laser vein removal treatments can improve the appearance of a range of skin conditions, whether it’s an isolated blood vessel, spider veins, or a large area of redness. We can treat rosacea and irregular vascular conditions in a single pulse with no discomfort and no downtime. Additional treatments can further improve or maintain your results.
