Megan Carson-Kirsten is the founder and head esthetician at Treat Skin Studio. Her foray into the beauty and skin care industry started over 15 years ago when she was working in cosmetics for top brands including Clinique, Estee Lauder, and Lancome. She immediately fell in love with the industry and knew skincare was what she was meant to be doing.
After acquiring her Esthetician Degree from Deloux Cosmetology School, she joined Miracullum, an award-winning day spa in Walnut Creek, California. As an esthetician, Megan became notorious for her incredible facials and eyebrows and developed a base of recurring clients who sought out her expertise. During her five years Megan honed her technique, developed her creativity, and customized her services so that each of her clients would have a truly memorable and unique experience.
Megan came to Tre Balm, a small European-style, skin-care boutique in San Francisco. At Tre Balm, Megan founded and developed the spa program which allowed her to customize each service. Megan began to create her own signature masks and toners and to develop seasonal specialties; facial services inspired by the changing seasons.
At Tre Balm, Megan also established new offerings and developed new treatments. She was one of the first estheticians in San Francisco to offer the hyperbaric oxygen facial,the treatment popularized by Madonna for making the face appear more smooth, young, and fresh. In addition, Megan participated in many high-profile events where she showcased her talents, including performing celebrity facials at the 2006 Emmy’s. After 7 years at Tre Balm, Megan decided to start her own business and developed Treat Skin Studio, a comfortable, relaxing, and modern retreat.

“Treat Skin Studio is all about treating yourself and treating your skin. I want my clients to have the best, most personalized experience they can possibly have, which is why I don’t believe an hour is sufficient for a thorough facial and I don’t schedule clients back-to-back. When my clients come here, they get the full treatment.”
Megan has continued to build upon her extensive experience through constant training of the hottest techniques and researching the latest natural, environmentally friendly products on the market. She regularly attends trade shows and industry events to stay on top of all these new trends and brings them back to share with her clients.
At Treat Skin Studio, Megan has created a truly exclusive and serene environment where her clients are catered to from beginning to end. From the unique modern beauty, environmental photo escapes, to the array of calming colors and restorative ambiance, Megan has thought of everything that will make for a perfect, relaxing experience.
Come in and treat yourself – you deserve it.
