Christine Palylyk

Laser Technician & Cosmetic Tattoo Artist

Christine is a 4th-generation Lower Mainlander and the newest addition to the Technical and Clinical team here at Project Skin MD. With 19 years’ experience in the beauty industry (graduating from Blanche Macdonald in 1996), Christine embodies a true passion for aesthetics and beauty with a keen eye for detail.

Fresh from seven years at the Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre under Dr. Martin Braun, a year at the Lougheed Laser Centre prior to that (where she first made acquaintance with Dr. McGillivray in 2007), combined with a seven-year stretch at MAC Cosmetics, Christine truly loves to apply her knowledge of the science of beauty. She is an enthusiastic team member with a thirst for knowledge and is constantly updating her artistic and technical skills. On the softer side of this skill set, her warm and personal demeanor helps her clients feel instantly at ease.

On her personal days, Christine can be found riding her sport bike, enjoying the beautiful scenery that western North America has to offer. To date, her longest ride was a 4000-km road trip with her dad, all the way down to Wyoming and back. In the winter, Christine is glued to our local ski hills. Her love of all things aesthetic applies to the home as well – she enjoys home design and decorating, as well as drawing and painting.
