Over the last few decades, laser and light treatments for the skin have become a skin care routine staple for many people. When you’re looking for significant improvement in a shorter time frame, you may be more interested in laser skin resurfacing. 

For less intense, more maintenance level treatments, we love to recommend a BBL or IPL treatment for those looking for skin rejuvenation near Menlo Park.

We offer both BBL (broadband light) and IPL (intense pulsed light) treatments at Entre Nous Aesthetics because they can both be beneficial depending on your aesthetic goals.

What’s the difference between getting a BBL and IPL treatment near Menlo Park?

BBL and IPL are similar technologies. They are a type of phototherapy that uses light energy to address a variety of skin issues. 

The main difference is that BBL uses broadband light with multiple wavelengths, while an IPL treatment uses a single, focused beam. IPL is great for targeted treatment, while BBL can cover larger areas.
