Conditions We Treat

Acne

Although lifestyle habits are often to blame for minor breakouts, factors such as hormones, heredity, and other physiological issues can contribute to more severe cases of acne in individuals of all ages. At ReNue, we're proud to offer specialized treatment options for both adults and teens.

Aging Skin

The aging process affects us all in different ways, from laxity and sagging to changes in texture and wrinkles. Our clinicians are skilled at recommending peels and microdermabrasion, skin resurfacing, injectable filling agents, or wrinkle smoothing injectables based on your skin's unique needs.

Broken Blood Vessels & Veins

Red and purple lesions caused by visible blood vessels and veins can be tricky to treat. At ReNue, our lineup of light therapies, including laser vein treatments, can treat a variety of vascular concerns with minimal downtime.

Brown Spots & Hyperpigmentation

Often exacerbated by aging and sun exposure, hyperpigmentation and brown spots respond well to light therapies such as intense pulsed light. This device works by breaking apart dark pigment using light beams, significantly fading spots. Read More

Loss of Tone & Texture

Aging, sun damage, and certain uncontrollable factors, such as heredity, can all affect the skin's tone and texture. Platelet-rich plasma skin rejuvenation, or PRP, is a treatment that uses your own blood platelets to improve your skin's overall condition. Additionally, certain chemical peels and microdermabrasion can further refine your complexion.

Moles & Skin Tags

Our dedicated mole and skin tag treatments effectively remove these growths, leaving behind very little visible scarring. Dr. McWhirter also offers biopsy and cancer screening for suspicious moles, ensuring your long-term health.

Unwanted Hair

If you're ready to say goodbye to unwanted hair on your face or body, laser hair removal can offer safe, long-lasting results. Occasionally, we may use IPL to remove unwanted hair.

Temporary Hair Removal

Whether you're preparing for an upcoming vacation or simply want to try out a new style, temporary hair removal with waxing and threading can give you the long-lasting smoothness you want.

Rosacea & Redness

The pink or red flush caused by rosacea can be frustrating to hide or treat. At ReNue, we offer several options for laser skin rejuvenation to reduce flare-ups and help you feel more confident in any situation.

Scars

Although illness and injury are normal parts of life, the scars they leave behind can be bothersome. Whether your scar is raised and discolored or a depressed mark, laser skin rejuvenation or platelet-rich plasma can stimulate collagen development to help smooth it away.

Wrinkles

Lines and wrinkles can appear as a result of years of repetitive movements such as squinting or simply from age-related changes in tone. From fine surface lines to deep folds and creases, your wrinkles are no match for our up-to-date selection of wrinkle treatments. Popular options include injectable filling agents, wrinkle smoothing injectables, and laser rejuvenation.
