Lasers & Light
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, M.D., ourBarrington, IL, med spa to treat your skin conditions with the most advanced laser technology available from Cynosure.
These laser and light energy treatments are available only at a licensed physician’s office:
Refresh sun-damaged and aging skin with photo-rejuvenation, also called intense pulsed light (IPL). With IPL treatments, we can significantly improve discoloration, fine lines and irregular texture. IPL reacts with the skin to shed damaged cells during the 5 to 7 days following the procedure. Sun protection and at-home skin care improve and maintain your beautifully refreshed skin.
Stretch Marks & 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 skincare and diligent sun protection are essential to achieve and maintain your results.
Fractional laser resurfacing creates microscopic tunnels in the skin that strengthen and firm the skin overall as they heal. Over time, they produce a smoother, firmer, more even-textured, toned and hued complexion. Fractional resurfacing produces a visible change of appearance after 5 to 10 days of minor healing, and continues improving in the weeks following treatment. A series of treatments can produce remarkable results. It’s important to use quality skin care products at home and protect your skin from the sun to maintain your skin’s smoother, firmer, beautiful appearance.

Rosacea, Facial Vessels, & Redness
Our laser treatments can improve the appearance of a range of skin conditions, whether it’s an isolated blood vessel 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. While treatment produces near total clearing, patients must understand that the body naturally will produce new vessels or redness overtime that can be treated to restore a clear and even complexion.
