Skin Experts Who Understand

Peel Simply Skin is a boutique skin care studio founded in 2010 by Elisa Muchmore. Elisa's interest in skin care sprouted from her own battle with skin issues. Elisa opened the business as a solo esthetician and worked tirelessly to build her business. In 2018, she was finally able to expand!
Elisa acquired two amazing spaces where North Park, Normal Heights, and University Heights converge to offer advanced facial services in three beautiful, quiet, and relaxing treatment rooms, full of top-of-the-line equipment. She meticulously hired the most incredible staff, who all have not only equal experience but MORE!
The staff at Peel Simply Skin are experts in the field of corrective skin care, acne treatment, and chemical peels, as well as hair removal and lash lifts. We are ALL about skin! We are a hybrid spa that combines all of the spa comforts and amenities with advanced corrective skin care treatments
We are a team and truly a family that all work closely together to get the fastest, most effective results for our clients. No matter who you see, you are in exceptional hands.

Nicole W.

Lead Esthetician
Nicole came to us from Tennessee. She was referred to Elisa by one of her clients! Upon Elisa meeting Nicole she was blown away by her level of experience. She has 15 years of aesthetics experience in a medical setting and also in a high end spa. She combines the two for the most relaxing and corrective treatment available. Not only is Nicole talented but she is the kindest, most thoughtful and genuine person that you will ever meet. Although her official title is Lead Asethetician she is actually Elisa's Esthi Bestie. She fills in all of the blanks at Peel Simply Skin! 


Esthetician / Wax and Lash Lift Expert 
Suzy is a 20-year experienced Esthetician and wax specialist here in San Diego. She came to us after the Covid-19 shutdowns, and we were so thrilled to have someone with her experience, skill level, and sweet personality as part of the Peel Simply Skin family. When she is not doing her best work here with us, she is at the beach with her family. She is a wife and mom to three pre-teens with a set of twins. Personal waxing is never comfortable, but she will instantly put you at ease when you meet her. Her advanced training and experience will wow you!  We love her, and so will you!


Lexi has been a licensed esthetician for 8 years and gained experience working in San Diego's leading luxury hotels and spas. She specializes in goal-orientated, customized facial treatments, while creating a luxurious, comfortable, and relaxing environment for clients. Her favorite part of the facial is the facial massage. She is a firm believer in the power of regular facial treatments and massage to maintain the health of your skin. When she's not at our spa, she enjoys trying local coffee shops and spending time at the beach with her two dogs, Harper and Finley.
