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

Lead Esthetician

With ten years of experience in treating a variety of skin types and skin conditions, Mallory specializes in inflammatory skin conditions such as acne management, rosacea, and eczema, with an emphasis on barrier integrity. She is thrilled to blend her holistic skin knowledge and facial massage techniques with corrective, results-driven treatments here at Peel Simply Skin. Mallory believes the client-Esthetician relationship is an integral part of the healing process, and it is her goal to create a bespoke, results-oriented treatment plan while prioritizing relaxation in the treatment room. 


Outside of the treatment room you will find Mallory wandering through farmers markets, cooking, reading, staying active with walks and weight lifting, spending quality time with loved ones, and snuggling her miniature dachshund, Salsa.
