Spa Lumina was founded by Dr. Sohail Gandhi in February 2005. Dr. Gandhi has practiced family medicine in the Georgian Triangle Area since 1992. Having majored in biochemistry and physics, he was always intrigued with cellular renewal and laser processes. He decided to combine his passion with a growing market for non-invasive facial procedures by opening Spa Lumina.

“We have always been at the forefront of offering the safest, technologically superior medical equipment available in the market. We spend a great deal of time and energy researching before we decide to add any new products or services,” says Nicola Gontier, Marketing and Client Relations.

“We believe very strongly in The Golden Rule. We treat our clients how we would want to be treated. We try to keep things as straightforward and simple as possible. We believe in being honest and transparent, providing full information to clients on the phone or through email to help them on their research journey for health and wellness. We are strong advocates for sharing pricing openly, on our website and on the phone. If there are treatments that require consultation to determine pricing, we always provide a ballpark range.”

This attention to detail includes staffing. Each team member shares the values of Spa Lumina. The team is long-term; some have been with Spa Lumina since the doors opened. The medical laser technicians, Christine, Renee, Allisha, and Teresa, have 30 years of combined experience. Founder Dr. Gandhi has over 25 years of experience, and, as a top cosmetic injector in Simcoe County, is often sought out to share his knowledge and experience at conferences and medical seminars. 

Spa Lumina is here for you whether you want a relaxing day with your friends, or if you are looking to unleash your inner confidence, something that can be achieved when you look as good on the outside as you feel on the inside.

“With all of the new clinical studies and research being done over the past 20 years, we are constantly discovering phenomenal mechanisms of how our bodies work,” shares Gontier. “The human body is incredibly and intricately designed to withstand enormous amounts of stimuli and stress. It has its own elaborate repair and rejuvenate mechanisms. It is only recently that we are beginning to understand how to jumpstart and augment those mechanisms, leading to a more preventative healthy lifestyle. By taking measures before the problems appear, we are able to delay some of the inevitable signs of aging that normally occur. This is especially important for our brain, heart and organ health. If we can provide the keystones to help these organs continue to function at a high capacity, we automatically increase the quality of life for many years to come.”

She continues, “This is the same with our skin, which is the body’s largest organ. Provided with the right combination of pharmaceutical grade skincare, laser stimulating treatments, medical facial treatments and as needed, injectables, we can help delay and sometimes turn back the hands of time. Our faces are our window to society, it is our brand and how we interact with the world. Having a relaxed and rejuvenated appearance helps one feel more reassured and confident in life.”

Self care is even more important during the pandemic. 

“Self confidence and self esteem are very important aspects for positive mental health, especially during these trying times with COVID,” agrees Gontier. “Self care is critically important at all times but even more so now. Taking time to refresh and rejuvenate yourself with pampering provided by Spa Lumina can help lift spirits and ease stress.”

Gontier concludes, “We are so excited to announce two new technologies in 2021. We will be introducing the first ever FDA/Health Canada approved plasma facial rejuvenation device, the OPUS. We will also be offering a quicker and more comfortable laser hair removal device due to continued demand for laser hair removal services.”

The entire team of Spa Lumina is thrilled to be the region’s spa and cosmetic service destination of choice for the past 16 years. Learn more at
