This revolutionary device offers hydradermabrasion (more on this below) in an amazing multi-step system, leaving you feeling relaxed and pampered and your skin positively ✨glowing✨ 

The team at Entre Nous Aesthetics is proud to be the premier provider of HydraFacials in Menlo Park and the greater Bay Area.

What is hydradermabrasion, and why does it matter?

“Hydradermabrasion” is a big word that simply means that a HydraFacial provides a gentler approach to dermabrasion and exfoliation. 

Rather than taking the traditional route with a microdermabrasion wand, we instead use a method that relies on water pressure and other serums to moisturize, brighten, plump, and protect your skin—all while giving you the same, or better, results than older, harsher exfoliation methods. 

The HydraFacial machine’s unique handpiece contains spiralized tips that boast “vortex-fusion technology” to both remove all the harmful dirt, debris, and oil from your pores while leaving behind, and reinforcing, the good oils and bacteria that keep your skin gorgeous.

A HydraFacial may be right for you if…

There is no skin type or tone that can’t benefit from a HydraFacial. It is one of the most universally skin-friendly treatments that exists. At Entre Nous, we see men and women of all ages for HydraFacials to help them achieve healthy, fresh, and clean skin.

HydraFacial is a great option for you if you want to:

  • Remove all the gunk from your pores and reduce pore size
  • Improve your skin’s elasticity and firmness
  • Address fine lines and wrinkles
  • Clear up acne or pigmentation and even your skin’s tone & texture
  • Get a shine so bright you’ll have to wear shades 😎

One last thing: if you are currently experiencing an active rash, sunburn, or rosacea, or if you are pregnant, consider waiting to treat yourself to a HydraFacial until the condition clears or you give birth.

What can I expect during a HydraFacial near me?

When you come to see the experienced Entre Nous team for your HydraFacial, get ready to feel relaxed and pampered. 

First, we will ask you to remove your makeup (if you wear any to your appointment). We will also provide you with a terry headband or a towel to protect your hair, and you will lie comfortably on your back throughout the procedure. 

Step 1: Cleansing & Physical Exfoliation

Your HydraFacial specialist will first use the machine’s deplaning tool over your entire face and neck. This pressurized water treatment is designed to open up your pores and sweep away leftover makeup and other debris. 

This step also provides gentle physical exfoliation, which removes dead skin cells clinging to the skin and encourages new cell turnover. 

Step 2: Chemical Exfoliation

Next, we apply a gentle glycolic & salicylic acid peel that may give you a light tingle as it works. Chemical exfoliation is an extremely important part of regular exfoliation and helps provide the base for healthy skin. 

The glycolic acid dissolves any remaining dead skin cells and debris on the skin’s surface, while the salicylic acid penetrates deeper into pores and can help clear any pimples or blackheads you may be experiencing.

Step 3: Extractions

Using HydraFacial’s vortex-extraction nozzle (which is essentially a mini vacuum), we can literally suck all the remaining oil and debris out of your pores. This can further address stubborn, lingering acne and blackheads.

Pro tip: There is a cup at the base of the machine where you can see everything we extracted from your pores. Dr. Pimple Popper fans, we’re betting this is the step you’ll most enjoy. Trust us, there’s always more than you think in there!

Step 4: Serum Infusion

Using the vortex-infusion HydraFacial attachment, we infuse antioxidant-and-moisture-rich serums into your now deeply clean skin to promote elasticity and long-lasting hydration. 

Those with special skin concerns or who want to get even more out of their HydraFacial can opt for custom HydraFacial “Boosts,” designed to target and treat certain skin concerns.

And then we’re all done! Go look in the mirror and check out your gleaming skin.

Is there any downtime or side effects to expect after a HydraFacial?

One of our favorite parts about the HydraFacial is that there are no side effects or downtime to be expected at all! Those with more sensitive skin may be slightly pink for an hour or two following the treatment, but otherwise you are free to put makeup on and continue your day as normal.

The HydraFacial is designed to be more powerful than a facial, yet still gentler than a laser or IPL photofacial treatment, meaning you can get out and show the world your fresh complexion as soon as you leave the Entre Nous office in Menlo Park!

When will I see results from my HydraFacial? Will they last?

While most of our patients notice a brighter, more even skin tone immediately after their first HydraFacial treatment, it may take more than one HydraFacial to get the results you want. 

Once your desired results are achieved, your skin will look and feel extra hydrated and smooth for a week or two after treatment. 

The Benefits of a HydraFacial Near You at Entre Nous Aesthetics

Ideal for All Ages and Skin Types

Everyone’s skin is different. Most people have unique concerns, and skin changes a lot as you age. A HydraFacial is great for most skin conditions at any age. 

For those with younger skin, it works to help treat acne, reduce congestion, combat dry skin, and act as an preventative anti-aging treatment. For mature skin, a HydraFacial helps to boost your skin’s hydration and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Just like women, men may have different skin concerns they want to treat with a HydraFacial, since this treatment truly works on everyone.

Great for First Timers

If you’ve never had a professional facial or aesthetic treatment, a HydraFacial is a great starting point. Many of our clients will get a HydraFacial before more aggressive skin treatments.

Easy, Quick, and Relaxing

At Entre Nous Aesthetics, our HydraFacial typically takes about 45 minutes. You’ll relax in our comfortable treatment room while your HydraFacial specialist pampers and cleans your skin. 

Personalized Treatment

HydraFacial has multiple serums and products we can use to personalize your treatment for each of your specific skin concerns. We can add these on to customize your HydraFacial treatment to ensure the best results! 

Maintains Your Skin Health

One of the best ways to ensure your healthy skin is to get routine professional skin treatments, like the HydraFacial. There is no minimum or maximum amount that you can receive this treatment to improve your skin health!

Perfect Before a Big Event

Because there is no recovery period or downtime for your skin with a HydraFacial, it’s the perfect skin treatment for a big event! Your skin can look extra special and luminous for a wedding, photoshoot, holiday party, or any other reason that you’d like a skin boost.

How often should I schedule a HydraFacial?

We recommend scheduling regular HydraFacials at Entre Nous to fight the signs of aging and environmental damage. A seasonal HydraFacial is good, and monthly to every 6 weeks HydraFacials are even better!

Can HydraFacial be paired with other treatments at Entre Nous?

Absolutely! We find a HydraFacial pairs well with almost all the treatments offered at Entre Nous, but here are a few of our favorite pairings:

HydraFacial + Injectables

For those looking to achieve an all-around more youthful appearance, we find that pairing your injectable treatments with a HydraFacial can be incredibly effective! 

Get these treatments in the same visit and leave our office with relaxed dynamic wrinkles from BOTOX®, enhanced cheekbones with fillers, and gorgeously glowing skin!

Can we perform them on the same day? Yes!

HydraFacial + Laser Skin Resurfacing

Pairing HydraFacial with ablative laser treatments, like our CO2RE® laser by Candela (in the weeks that follow your laser treatment, of course) can certainly enhance your results. 

If you have ever had an ablative laser treatment, you know that there is a period of healing time that involves lots of skin shedding. A HydraFacial can speed up this process and more effectively remove the dead or damaged skin we are trying to eliminate with the laser treatments, while also giving you a dose of much-needed hydration. 

Can we perform them on the same day? No – wait until skin heals after laser treatment

HydraFacial + IPL Photofacial

Patients with more stubborn pigmentation or sun damage concerns may consider IPL photofacial treatments from Entre Nous to address these issues.

To further enhance the results of these intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, consider pairing with a HydraFacial to further pave the way for clear, bright, new skin to come through.

Can we perform them on the same day? Depends on your tolerance – your specialist can advise!

HydraFacial + SkinPen Microneedling

Pairing microneedling treatments with HydraFacials delivers a noticeably more youthful appearance. Our clients turn to the SkinPen to restore skin firmness, address discoloration, minimize pores, and more. HydraFacials perfectly complement and maximize these results! 

Can they be performed on the same day? No – wait until skin heals
