We understand that most skincare solutions are less than perfect. Spa facials, dermatology, at-home products and laser treatments can be expensive, time-consuming, confusing, and frustratingly ineffective. We started Silver Mirror to address those problems.
Silver Mirror was founded on one simple concept: great skin takes consistent upkeep. Just like going to the gym regularly, ongoing maintenance is essential to seeing results.
Our facials are fast and affordable, yet completely customized and above all, effective. In fact, our facials are not just facials, but results-driven treatments integrating the highest quality products and technologies.
After one visit, you’ll glow. Over time, you’ll achieve healthy, beautiful skin that lasts.

Yes, an enzyme peel is a manual exfoliation method, typically derived from fruit. A chemical peel operates over multiple days, penetrating the lower skin layers to reach and reduce sebum production, thereby reducing breakouts.
We are strong believers in the importance of exfoliation in an effective skincare regimen. We recommend using gentler exfoliating methods (such as enzyme-based or acid-based exfoliants) over harsh facial scrubs. Scrubs harm skin by causing micro tears in the skin, which as a result will further dry out already dehydrated skin, cause increased oil production for already oily skin, and leave skin irritated and red.

We recommend adding active serums and/or treatments to your regimen in order to turn back the clock on aging skin. One of the most important products to add to your arsenal is retinol, a derivative of Vitamin A, which triggers cell renewal. Retinol can minimize fine lines and wrinkles, smooth skin texture, and reduce the appearance of hyperpigmentation.
Other helpful anti-aging ingredients include peptides (which stimulate collagen in the skin), glycolic acid, hyaluronic acid, ceramides, and vitamin C.
