Aging Isn’t a Singular Process: Rejuvenating the Full Face


Men and women are each affected by facial aging differently. Whereas some struggle with wrinkles, others are more concerned with volume loss, skin quality, or loose and sagging skin. As many can attest to, aging is commonly multi-faceted. With this in mind, Dr. Renee Burke often chooses to address aging using a combination of med spa treatments at her Barrington plastic surgery practice.

What is the best facial rejuvenation treatment?

When it comes to revitalizing your appearance, the sum is worth more than the parts. That is to say, there is no single best rejuvenation treatment; treatments often must be used in combination to achieve optimal results. That comprehensive approach is important because our faces often develop multiple signs of aging at the same time:

  • Dynamic wrinkles form from repeatedly making expressions.
  • Deeper lines and hollows develop from volume loss.
  • Skin loses its elasticity and becomes lax and saggy.

Utilizing injectables, fillers, and lasers, Dr. Burke offers the latest in full-face skin tightening. With her expertise in facial anatomy, Dr. Burke is able to complement each treatment with the use of another. Following are some common concerns men and women express as they age and how we address them.

How do you treat expression lines?

Warding off wrinkles and expression lines, injectable treatments like BOTOX® and Xeomin® relax forehead furrows, crow’s feet, and frown lines.

How do you fix lost volume in your face?

As we age, our faces tend to lose their natural and youthful fullness. More than volume loss alone—fine lines and wrinkles, creases, and facial hollows are all accentuated. By restoring a healthy volume, dermal fillers like Belotero®, JUVÉDERM®, Voluma™,  Radiesse®, and  can smooth an aging face.

The before-and-after pictures below show how the combination of BOTOX and fillers (and some really great skincare products!) rejuvenate the face.

How do I firm up my neck?

A favorite at our Barrington office, PrecisionTx™ is a minimally invasive and non-surgical procedure that produces dramatic results. Tightening loose and sagging skin, “PrecisionTx is a laser procedure that is ideal for smaller areas, including the neck and jawline,” explains Dr. Burke. “The benefits of this minimally-invasive procedure include: minimal scaring, very little downtime, and long-lasting results.” Patients also like that PrecisionTx can be “performed in the privacy of our office.” You can see some of our patients’ results in their before-and-after pictures.
