Laser Skin Resurfacing
We offer laser skin resurfacing in Calgary and Airdrie utilizing the Sciton® JOULE™, an innovative system that offers exceptional results with minimal downtime. The Sciton system can treat vascular and pigmented lesions (skin redness), wrinkles, acne, acne scars, and other skin blemishes. In addition, the system can give you firmer skin and has the ability to treat large areas efficiently and effectively.
During Airdrie and Calgary laser skin resurfacing procedures, Dr. McWhirter uses a carefully controlled laser beam to remove damaged layers of skin and/or target deeper layers of skin to promote the body's natural restoration processes. Shallow penetration is used for eliminating fine lines, rejuvenating tired-looking skin or removing discolorations like sun-spots. Deep penetration is used for improving skin texture and tone as well as eliminating deeper wrinkles, even in troublesome areas such as around the mouth and eyes. Dr. McWhirter can adjust the laser to target the deep or shallow layers of your skin to meet your cosmetic goals. Sometimes, an anti-wrinkle injectable such as BOTOX® in Calgary, may also be recommended for additional enhancements.

Benefits for Different Conditions
Dr. McWhirter uses the multi-purpose Sciton JOULE skin treatment laser for a variety of different conditions. This versatile system offers these benefits for the following concerns:
- Acne treatment: In addition to the other acne treatment methods available at ReNue, the skin treatment laser can generate new collagen and correct blemishes and scars from acne. This procedure offers clearer, smoother skin.
Acne Treatments Before & After Photos
- Skin firming: Sagging, loose skin in areas such as your neck and face can make you look older than you feel. Dr. McWhirter can use the Sciton JOULE laser to create a new foundation of collagen, renewing your skin for a youthful, firm appearance. Because these improvements occur gradually, you'll look naturally younger and refreshed.

- Phototherapy: Sun exposure and the aging process can cause pigmented lesions and areas of redness on your face. Dr. McWhirter can treat these concerns by using the light energy ability of the Sciton JOULE laser to stimulate your skin cells, resulting in new collagen and evenly toned skin. In addition, he uses the photothermal energy to target and remove selected vessels that result in redness.
