How Often Should I Schedule A Facial?

If you have fallen off your regular facial routine lately, or if you never had a regular regimen to begin with, it can be difficult to know how often you should schedule a professional facial treatment. 

As it turns out, the rule, “too much of a good thing is a bad thing” can definitely apply to skin care treatments. However, if you do not have treatments often enough, you may not reap all the best benefits for your efforts; or you may not adequately address your concerns at all. 

Entre Nous Aesthetics is proud to be the Bay Area’s premier medical aesthetics office, offering custom facials, chemical peels, and HydraFacials™. We love helping to educate our clients on how often they should schedule a facial in Menlo Park. 

Not all facials are equal. Let’s break a few down…

There are many types of facials that treat dozens of different skin concerns and types. Keep reading as we go through several of our most popular ones below!

HydraFacial MD

The HydraFacial is a universally skin-friendly multi-step hydradermabrasion treatment. It’s the world’s most popular facial, and it’s a fave of our skin specialists, too! 

If you want to treat fine lines and wrinkles, blackheads, clogged or enlarged pores, or brown spots and hyperpigmentation, a HydraFacial could be the exact solution you’ve been looking for.

All about HydraFacials →


This exfoliating facial uses an ultra-sharp surgical blade (and a steady hand!) to remove dead skin cells and “peach fuzz” hairs that sit around on the skin’s surface and cause the skin to appear dull or lackluster. 

Dermaplaning leaves you with an immediately brighter, smoother complexion you will be excited to show the world!

Chemical Peel

Getting a chemical peel can be a great way to bring a fresh start to your skin! Including chemical peels in a client’s treatment plan helps us remove damaged outer layers and treat everything from acne and uneven skin tone to sun damage and wrinkles.

Chemical peels vary in strength, effects, and associated downtime. During your initial consultation with our skin specialists, be sure your reasons for receiving the chemical peel are clear. This will help us suggest the correct regimen for your skin and will help you get the timing just right. 

Here’s how often to schedule your facials in Menlo Park

So, how often do you need to come back and see us for a facial in Menlo Park? Our best advice is that you likely do not need one of the above treatments more than once a month. Any more often than that and you risk depleting your skin of everything it’s got—not just the harmful dirt, oils, and pollutants.

If your budget and schedule allow, every 6 weeks is the ideal regular schedule for your facials in Menlo Park at Entre Nous Aesthetics, ensuring that you adequately address your concerns and maintain the results you desire. Note: If you visit us for medium-depth chemical peels, time between treatments may differ. Your specialist at Entre Nous can advise. 

If you are operating on more of a limited budget for your skincare, one of our HydraFacials at least at the end of every season is recommended.
