Meet Dr. McWhirter

Dr. Jason McWhirter has a passion for aesthetics centered on the principle that beautiful skin and physical wellness are intertwined. Through specialized expertise and a desire to truly listen, Dr. McWhirter consistently provides the results our patients love.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

We offer laser skin resurfacing in Calgary, Seton 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 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 correcting 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 softening 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 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 help treated areas generate new collagen, and correct blemishes and scars from acne. This procedure offers clearer, smoother skin.
  • 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. These improvements occur gradually to help patients 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 more evenly toned skin. In addition, he uses the photothermal energy to target and reduce selected blood vessels that result in redness.
