Meet Dr. McWhirter
Dr. Jason McWhirter believes that skin care rejuvenation and physical wellness are intertwined. He uses his training and expertise to create treatments customized for each patient.
Photo Rejuvenation (IPL)
We perform IPL utilizing next-generation intense pulsed light technology. Safer and more comfortable than older laser technology, IPL photofacial treatments can remove hyperpigmentation and other spots, visible veins and other imperfections and increase collagen synthesis. IPL can also be used as an alternative to laser hair removal to treat unwanted hair.
The treatment itself is quick and easy. As our aesthetician moves the pulsed light handpiece over your skin, a pulsed light breaks up the pigment in the affected area (a sensation akin to a gentle snapping, causing little or no discomfort). Treated areas darken slightly after the procedure, and then fade away about 10 to 14 days later. ReNue recommends a series of 3 to 5 photofacials spaced 4 to 5 weeks apart.

Sciton® SkinTyte II™
As we age, the elasticity in our skin gradually begins to decrease. This causes our skin to sag over time. With SkinTyte II, infrared light encourages your skin to tighten by heating the soft tissue and stimulating collagen production. Essentially, it initiates the body's natural healing process, leading to firmer, more youthful-looking skin. There is no downtime after a session with SkinTyte II, and patients can often see results after a single treatment.
The SkinTyte II device also uses sapphire contact cooling to protect the epidermis while working on the deeper tissue, diminishing the need for topical anesthetic. Some patients report slight redness after treatment, but it typically fades quickly, as does any mild swelling that may occur.

The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine-line wrinkles, diffuse and excessive redness and help manage large pores, uneven skin texture, and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel. By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin's surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen re-growth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Laser Genesis is safe for all skin types even very dark skin types and gentle enough to treat rosacea, with no visible side effects post treatment.
As a result of factors such as sun exposure, smog, and the natural aging process, your skin may become wrinkled, unevenly colored, and dry. Using the Sciton® JOULE™ laser skin resurfacing system, fibroblasts generate new collagen, correcting skin imperfections. After a procedure, your skin is rejuvenated, with concerns such as wrinkles, uneven tone, or rough texture reduced. Your face will look and feel smoother, firmer, and more evenly toned. This comfortable, gentle treatment also plumps your skin, minimizing any dryness. Patient experiences vary. For additional volume and fullness, a dermal filler such as JUVÉDERM® may be beneficial.
