We’re lucky to live in a day and age where we have an extraordinary amount of control when it comes to how we present ourselves to the world. Aesthetic concerns that could have meant a lifetime of embarrassment in previous years are now easy fixes, especially when it comes to skincare and anti-aging

At Entre Nous Aesthetics, our aestheticians use light and laser treatments to address a whole array of issues from scar removal treatments to healing sun-damaged skin and stress urinary incontinence. Whether you’re looking for full facial rejuvenation or just dipping your toes into the water with laser treatments in San Jose, you deserve to look and feel your best.

What we can treat using light and laser treatments

Our laser technicians are trained to use laser technology to treat a variety of issues:

  • Sun damage
  • Stress urinary incontinence
  • Cherry angioma removal
  • Rosacea
  • Acne scars
  • Port wine stains
  • Vaginal Dryness
  • Stretch marks
  • And more!

How does a laser do all that?

We’re glad you asked! For starters, we don’t use just one type of laser! At Entre Nous Aesthetics we have a suite of laser technology available. 

Here’s the rundown on our available laser treatments:

CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing

A classic in the laser skincare lineup, CO2 laser resurfacing is the go-to laser skin treatment in Menlo Park for anti-aging. Wrinkles, brown spots, and sun damage don’t stand a chance against the CO₂RE laser. 

This advanced laser treatment creates a controlled injury of the skin that stimulates collagen and elastin production, tightens and smoothes the skin, and improves areas of discoloration. We can customize this treatment to your needs, and the results are dramatic.


We use our V-Beam Laser in Menlo Park to banish unwanted redness, whether you’re dealing with overactive rosacea, spider veins, or stretch marks. V-Beam is a pulsed-dye laser that uses different colored wavelengths to target uneven pigmentation. It treats the affected areas while leaving your healthy skin untouched!


Our face isn’t the only part of the body that ages. As we get older, intimate wellness is just as important as aesthetic concerns. With vaginal laser therapy, you can revamp your body to look and feel younger without surgery or pain! We use our CO₂RE Intima laser to help our patients support their vaginal health.

Honorable Mention: BBL by Sciton

Broadband Light (or BBL) is not technically a laser, it is a very popular treatment that can address a lot of similar issues. BBL is particularly great for someone who maybe isn’t ready for the full commitment of a CO2 laser treatment, or is looking for maintenance treatments in between their laser sessions.

How do laser treatments work?

How exactly aesthetic laser treatments work depends on what condition you want to treat. While the lasers may be functioning the same, how your laser technician uses them is based on your specific treatment.

Laser for Skincare

Whether it’s for anti-aging or promoting vaginal health, lasers used for skin issues are focused on supporting your skin’s internal structure. For the most part, you can count on the laser gently heating up your skin, which stimulates your body’s natural healing response to produce more collagen and elastin (AKA rejuvenating results). 

Collagen and elastin are the 2 proteins that make up your skin’s structure. Collagen provides volume and elastin helps your skin retain its shape. As we age, the body stops producing these proteins at the same rate, which leads to those familiar signs of aging skin like wrinkles and drooping. It’s all because your skin’s structure is looser.

What happens during a laser skin treatment?

When we treat your skin with a laser, there are two things happening. 

First, the laser is removing the damaged tissue on the outer layers of your skin. At the same time, the laser is gently heating the lower layers of your skin to kick-start your body’s collagen production. This means your results continue to improve even after your treatment because the process continues. 

Your skin looks and feels younger because your body is literally producing new skin cells!

Ok, But how does laser help with vaginal health?

There’s collagen everywhere on your body, and stimulating the same process through vaginal laser therapy reinvigorates the tissue in that area too! By strengthening those areas, we’re able to address multiple vaginal health concerns.

What can I expect when I book my laser treatments in San Jose?

When you visit Entre Nous for your laser treatment, you can trust that you’ll be getting an individualized treatment plan based on your aesthetic concerns. 

You’ll start with a consultation

During your in-depth consultation with one of our expert providers, we’ll discuss your goals for treatment and your relevant medical history. Your aesthetician will also examine your skin and assess the treatment area. Using all of this information, we’ll curate a treatment plan based on your specific needs.

We’ll schedule your treatment

Laser skin treatments can require 3 to 6+ treatments. The number of treatments you’ll need will be based on your unique condition and treatment plans.

Each time you visit our medspa in Menlo Park, you’ll be shown to one of our comfortable treatment rooms. Your aesthetician will prep your skin for treatment and provide you with protective eyewear. Then? You get to sit back and relax as your expert technician lasers your concerns away.

You’ll see amazing results

When it comes to laser skin treatments, the results are cumulative. This means they’ll continue to improve as you move through your treatment plan and you’ll see the best results after you’ve completed your series of treatments. 

Don’t neglect your skin after your laser treatments in San Jose!

Laser is an investment in your skin’s health in the long term. The best way to protect that investment? Make sure your regular skincare routine is on point.

Medical-grade skincare products are a game changer when it comes to protecting your skin health and vitality in the long term. They have more potent ingredients, which is why you can only get them from a provider and not over the counter. More potent ingredients mean better results, and sooner.

Of course, the number one thing you can do for your skin after a laser treatment is to protect it from the sun. The sun is responsible for 90% of skin changes over your lifetime, sun-damaged skin on your arms and face can contribute to looking older and an increased risk of skin cancer.

What treatments pair well with laser skin resurfacing?

It wouldn’t be a complete guide to laser treatments in San Jose if we didn’t talk about the aesthetic treatments that can further enhance your laser results.

Along with medical-grade skincare products, there are other treatments that can help keep your skin glowing in between laser sessions. You can think of your regular laser session as a foundation that these treatments build on top of or preserve.

Botox or Daxxify

If you’ve got deep wrinkles, Botox and Daxxify (a Botox alternative) are easy and effective solutions to further support the results of your laser treatments. Once you’ve kissed your wrinkles goodbye with resurfacing, neurotoxins can prevent them from forming again.


A HydraFacial combines physical and chemical exfoliation, pore extractions, and serum infusion to deliver 45 minutes of heavenly rejuvenation to your skin. Monthly HydraFacials promote healthy skin all year round and are a great way to maintain the results of your laser treatments.

Chemical Peels

Regular chemical peels can help encourage your skin’s cell turnover rate in between your laser treatments. Plus you can get chemical peels more often than laser treatments.

These are just a few of our favorites. During your consultation, your aesthetician can recommend pairing treatments that can help you achieve the look of your dreams, and maintain it too!
