Our Facial Experts, Megan and Kakie

Megan Byrne

Lead Facialist and National Trainer for Biologique Recherche

Megan graduated from the Gainfort Academy in Wexford in 2013 where she qualified in Beauty Therapy. She began her work as a therapist in the Ashdown Park Hotel, Gorey.

She began working at The Greenhouse Project, where she was introduced to the Biologique Recherche skin care line. She fell in love with Biologique Recherche and its unique philosophy, and in 2015 she went to Paris for more intensive training at the Biologique Recherche Ambassade de la Beauté. She subsequently went on to become Ireland's National Biologique Recherche Trainer and currently trains aestheticians in Ireland on the skin care products and practical skills needed to work with Biologique Recherche.

Megan uses the Skin Instant Lab, a scientific-grade skin analysis machine with specialised probes to measure hydration levels, trans-epidermal water loss, elasticity, pigmentation and sebum production levels before her facials and for skin assessments. This then allows her to prescribe a highly individualised skin care regimen and to monitor changes in the skin over time. Megan also uses expert bespoke massage techniques during her facials to optimise results.

Megan has a huge client following due to her outstanding aesthetic skills and the remarkable results she delivers to her clients. Working with her clients to achieve the very optimal in skin care health remains her greatest passion.
