Your Guide to Getting the Perfect Facial Before an Event in Menlo Park

Getting a facial before an event is the perfect way to refresh and hydrate the skin to make sure you’re camera, stage, party, or travel-ready. When you’re within a few weeks of your event, the time for lasers and needles has passed. Make way for serums, scalpels, and scrubs!

Chemical peels

Chemical peels are a unique way to address skin damage without lasers or injections. By removing dead or damaged layers of skin, chemical peels reveal more healthy, vibrant skin,  improving texture and tone. Our Entre Nous team will perform a skin analysis with you at your consultation to select a peel that best fits your needs.

Peels are categorized into light and medium based on how deeply they penetrate your skin. The deeper into your skin the treatment goes, the more time you will need to recover and heal from your chemical peel facial before an event. We recommend having your chemical peel treatment at least two weeks before an event, especially if you will be exposed to the sun 😎


The HydraFacial is a three part facial rejuvenation system. This incredibly moisturizing treatment is ideal for all skin types, and is great paired with other treatments or on its own (but we always recommend pairing it with a great at-home skincare routine 😉 ). The HydraFacial lasts 45 minutes and includes physical & chemical exfoliation, pore extractions, and personalized serum choices.

The HydraFacial requires no downtime, and results are immediate. This treatment is the perfect last step in your beauty routine before an event to make sure your skin is hydrated and fresh!


Dermaplaning is a powerful exfoliation treatment that removes dead skin and vellus hairs from the surface of your skin to refresh and smooth the complexion. The process involves gently sweeping a surgical-grade scalpel across the skin at an angle, doing away with debris. 

This treatment enhances both the efficacy of your skincare products and the performance of your makeup. Without the barrier of old skin and peach fuzz, your products can penetrate deeper into your pores and makeup can sit more evenly on top of the skin.  

Dermaplaning is what we like to call a “lunch-hour” treatment. We can have you in and out of the office in under an hour and leave you instantly brighter and smoother. If you want your makeup to look flawless for your event, dermaplaning in the days leading up is a great secret helper!
