Founded in 2020, ShineMD is a skin care clinic in Vancouver that started with a loving mother’s passion. Dr. Mona Khurana has been singing “This little light of mine…I’m gonna let it shine” to her daughters for years, so the clinic’s name came to her naturally. She says acne and scarring cause people to lose touch with their inner radiance as they grow up, whether taking photos or looking in a mirror.

Dr. Khurana is also a skilled visionary, certified in family and emergency medicine by the College of Family Physicians. She holds a Postgraduate Diploma in Practical Dermatology with Distinction from Cardiff University. Over the years, she has engaged in bedside teaching, clinical didactic teaching, and mentorship for medical students, residents, and colleagues.

Today, her clinic provides treatments like NeoClear acne laser, scar treatments, and Potenza RF microneedling to help clients regain their shine and confidence.

Unmatched Service & Support

“Shine is unmatched. Advice, value, service and support… no other can even come close.  I have been going to shine for a couple of years and can’t say enough. Mona and her team have transformed my skin. I cannot thank you enough. Without them I would not have the confidence to go without makeup! Thank you!” 

-Ms. Reena Mann, Google Review

Another Amazing Experience

“It was another amazing experience.  It doesn’t matter what kind of day I am having, busy, hectic.  When I walk into Shine MD, I feel relaxed and safe.  The staff right in the front always so kind and professional.  Joanne always makes a point to come over and say hi. To check in with me.  Dr. Mona Khurana has provided me such great support for my skin care and always on top of my services.  Brianne is my treatment specialist and was so patient. She checked in frequently during my service to make sure I was ok.  It was painless and fast.  I came out with such glow and my skin has not felt this good in a while. I will be going back soon and will make sure to refer them to everyone I know.”

Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre started its journey with a floppy disk. In 1996, laser hair reduction was introduced in the city. The idea was revolutionary, but the machine was bulky, and appointments took a long time. Then came Dr. Martin Braun, a global presenter at top medical conferences like the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery and the International Society for Dermatologic Surgery.

Dr. Braun’s machine back then ran on a laptop using a floppy disk. From his basement, a team of 4 women answered phones and spread the word about this new treatment. Soon, he quickly became a leader in cosmetic innovation in Canada.

After the success of his laser hair removal innovation, other services like neuromodulators, CoolSculpting, and Ultherapy soon followed. The clinic grew from a team of 6 to over 100, experiencing rapid growth ever since. Soon, it will also have another aesthetic clinic to be opened in West Vancouver.

My Best Experience

She customized my treatment and made me feel so comfortable. I will absolutely be returning! I’ve had many facials and skin care treatments and this was by far my best experience.”

+1 604-732-0800

Mon-Fri: 9:00am – 5:00pm
Sat: 11:00am – 5:00pm

Project Skin MD was established in 2012 by Dr. William McGillivray and his wife, Bev McGillivray, because they dreamed about breaking traditional norms in aesthetic medicine clinics. They then partnered with L’Oréal skincare brand SkinCeuticals to create the first North American SkinCeuticals Advanced Clinical Spa on the ground floor of their 6,000-square-foot South Granville facility.

The clinic rapidly became recognized locally, nationally, and internationally. In 2015, it was showcased to hundreds of dermatologists worldwide to share their unique approach during the World Congress of Dermatology. And in 2016, the founders opened the first PS Glow Room, an innovative concept of a space dedicated to introductory medical aesthetic services. As a sign of their success, this was followed by another clinic in Richmond in 2017. 

Now, their clinics offer among the most number of treatments in the city, such as medical facials, dermaplaning, microneedling, mole removal, and more.


  • Spacious facility
  • Separate clinic and spa
  • Numerous skin procedures
  • Free underground parking


  • Occasional appointment delays

Absolutely Delighted

“I was absolutely delighted with the Customized Glow facial I received from Amanda! She’s not only incredibly knowledgeable but also has a wonderfully calming presence. The entire experience was so relaxing, and her personable nature made it even more enjoyable. Highly recommend her to anyone seeking a skilled aesthetician who truly cares about their clients’ well-being. Although the quality of service remains exceptional, I did notice a significant increase in prices since my last visit. While I understand the need for adjustments, I hope this means that a fair portion is being passed on to the staff. It’s important to ensure that the hardworking team behind such wonderful experiences are compensated fairly for their expertise and dedication.” 

-Ms. Ranjit Baines, Google Review 

I Feel Comfortable & Confident

“I cannot say enough about Project Skin Granville and Dr. Lo! The staff are lovely and always friendly, the space is always clean and welcoming, and Dr. Lo is the sweetest, most calming professional I know. He has always made me feel very comfortable and confident in my treatments. He never upsells and he only suggests treatments that maintain a natural, refreshing look! I have always left there happy and glowing! All in all, a wonderful self-care clinic! 💕”
