The folks at 4D Skin Care understand that no two clients have the same skin.  So to ensure consistent results, the clinic offers treatments tailored to each client’s needs. 

To do this, new clients will go through an evaluation and consultation to determine their needs.  When everything is set, clients can then choose from a series of procedures.

This helps clients save time and money while still receiving the best treatments for their particular skin conditions.  Of course, clients can still opt for standardized treatments if they prefer not to go through with a tailored skincare procedure.

Acne is a common skin condition that plagues adults of all ages.  To deal with this, 4D Skin Care offers VenusVersa acne treatments, which use intense blue and red lights to repair skin and remove acne-causing bacteria. 

Among the various treatments for acne, VenusVersa treatments are the least invasive and most convenient.  On average, clients can walk in and be treated in less than 20 minutes… with a bit of sunscreen and some healing time patients, can see a decrease in acne in as little as 4 days


  • Offers custom made treatments
  • Acne treatments can take less than 20 minutes
  • The clinic specializes in non-invasive treatments


  • The company opens late and closes early on Saturdays and Mondays

Those who wish to focus on the cosmetic aspect of skincare would be hard-pressed to find a clinic as well-equipped as Skin Technique.  Headed by Dr. Christopher Pavlou, these folks are all about helping clients look their best with medical procedures and topical treatments.

Dr. Pavlou ensures a high level of competence in all of his team members to create a strong sense of comfort with clients.  An example can be seen in the clinic’s dermaplaning procedure.

In essence, dermaplaning is the practice of scraping off fine facial hairs and dead skin cells with a scalpel. 

As scary as this procedure seems, the staff at Skin MD are able to treat clients without the slightest bit of pain or discomfort… As a matter of fact, many clients liken the procedure to a gentle exfoliation treatment.

In recognition of their skills, Skin MD has been voted the best dermatology clinic in Vancouver by The Georgia Straight for two consecutive years.


  • Voted as one of the best dermatology clinics in Vancouver
  • Posts treatments on social media for client education
  • Situated in downtown Vancouver


  • Not ideal for clients who want to focus on treating skin conditions

“Dr. Pavlov is simply amazing at what he does. He makes you feel better if you have any concerns and he listens to what you want. He is very kind and i only trust dr. Pavlov with any kind of treatment, especially when it comes to your face. He is an artist and you dont feel pain during treatment.  I went to see him to add volume to my face, and i am so happy with the results. It looks very natural and i recommend Dr. Pavlov to everyone.
