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.


Skin care physicians have long known the most effective anti-aging treatments addressed both skin laxity and the loss of volume. Previously, reducing the appearance of wrinkles was the only way to give patients a more youthful-looking face.

VOLUMA is an injectable gel that treats the loss of volume that give cheeks a hollowed out look. We inject it into the deeper layers of skin to boost volume and restore a plump, lifted look. VOLUMA, like many other fillers, uses hyaluronic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally and acts like a sponge to bind and absorb water. As we age, hyaluronic acid begins diminishing, which leads to facial lines and volume loss. VOLUMA offers benefits that include:

  • A smooth consistency that provides even results without lumps
  • No allergy testing needed before treatment
  • Instantly visible results clinically proven to last up to 2 years1

Plus, Dr. McWhirter can combine VOLUMA with other injectable treatments wrinkle smoothing injectables to optimize your results. This approach is called a Soft Lift™, and it can produce an impressive yet subtle transformation.

Your VOLUMA Treatment

The results you get from any aesthetic treatment depend on the training and skill of the physician or dermatologist. Our patients choose ReNue because Dr. McWhirter's results speak for themselves. Before your VOLUMA treatment, a topical cream is applied to the injection areas to increase your comfort during the procedure. The treatment itself takes between 15 and 30 minutes. Once injected, Dr. McWhirter gently massages the cheeks to ensure smooth, even results.

You'll notice results immediately. Mild bruising and swelling are the most common side effects. Most patients return to work or their normal daily activities just after treatment.
