Top 6 Holiday Gifts Purchased at Entre Nous Aesthetics

If you’re shopping for mom, your sister, or your BFF, it’s great finding ways to pamper those around you and help them not only enjoy a great experience, but also experience the long-term benefits of both outer beauty and inner confidence!

Here are the top 6 most popular treatments and services purchased for the holidays from our medical spa in Menlo Park:

Exfoliating Treatments 

One of the best types of beauty gifts during the dry winter season is professional exfoliation!

Most of the time, at-home exfoliation isn’t nearly as effective as a professional skin treatment. At Entre Nous, we are proud to have some of the Bay Area’s best skin professionals on staff. This allows us to provide highly customized treatments to help that gift keep on giving for days and even weeks afterward! 

Microdermabrasion uses a state-of-the-art exfoliating device to deep clean pores, clear away dead skin, and pave the way for a smoother, more youthful appearance! We can perform microdermabrasion on the face, neck, chest, and hands.

Our dermaplaning treatment is another form of exfoliation that uses a surgical-grade scalpel to sweep away dead skin cell buildup and vellus “peach fuzz” hairs.

We also offer a different exfoliation technique through chemical peels and resurfacing. We create customized chemical peels to align with patient goals and skin type and offer a range of peels from light to medium-depth.

A Facial

Next to exfoliating treatments, facials are one of the most relaxing experiences you can purchase for someone as a gift from a medical spa!

These can range from superficial and relaxing to deep-cleaning, and it all depends on what you know about that person. 

Are they new to aesthetics? A few of our favorite “beginner’s” facials for gifting during the holidays include:

The HydraFacial, a 3-step professional facial that exfoliates, cleanses, and hydrates the skin. It takes about 90 minutes and does not require downtime afterward.

A customized facial tailored to your unique skin. We can work on concerns such as acne, antiaging, dehydrated skin, and more.

The AquaGold Facial, a variation of microneedling that is safe for sensitive skin and highly customizable based on the client’s unique skin type, tone, and aesthetic goals.

If they’re veterans of the medical spa world, you could always purchase them a series of laser or light facials they already love, which could include:

IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Treatment, which is great for both anti-aging and general skin maintenance.

Profound Skin Tightening, which combines radiofrequency with microneedling to help brighten and tighten the skin anywhere on the body they choose!

The V-Beam laser, a new staff favorite that targets rosacea and redness for a more even complexion.

 Medical-Grade Skincare Products

Help them beef up their winter skincare routine by purchasing a set of medical-grade skincare products

Upgrading from drug store facial cleansers, moisturizers, SPFs, serums, and night creams can be one of the most life-changing steps in our long-term beauty journey. But not everyone understands what a difference the right products can truly make!

Only licensed providers can sell medical-grade products. This is because they contain a higher concentration of their active ingredients, making them more effective for the right client—but also more likely to be misused without the proper medical guidance. 

At Entre Nous, we carry one of the widest ranges of medical-grade products in Menlo Park, including the following skincare lines:

  • Colorescience
  • Cosmedix
  • Elta MD
  • groMD
  • Obagi
  • SkinCeuticals
  • Skin Medica
  • ZO SKin Health
  • Alastin
  • Tizo
  • Revision

Not sure where to start? It wouldn’t hurt to ask them! 

One of our favorite “sneaky” ways to ask someone what kind of skincare products they might need (without giving away the surprise!) is “What do you use for [cleansing, toning, brightening, moisturizing, etc.] right now? I’m trying to find something better for my skin.”

Permanent Makeup

For those low-maintenance gals in your life, gifting a permanent makeup session is basically like giving the gift of time! By applying semi-permanent pigment to the lips or brows, we can help shave precious chunks of time from their morning routine AND help them feel more confident and beautiful in their own natural features.

We can apply permanent makeup to the following areas:

  • Brows, to address thinned or over-plucked eyebrows, asymmetrical eyebrows, and/or sparse hair growth.
  • Lips, to restore pigment in lips, faded outline of the lips, pale lips, or dark lips.
  • Liner, to help to shape the eyes, make them pop, recreate the fullness of lashes, and visually lift drooping eyelids.

A Med Spa Membership

Some medical spas in Menlo Park offer different membership programs. Members of the Entre Nous Friends With Benefits program, for example, save $1300 or more a year! 

Starting at $199 a month, these memberships are the ultimate way to get a comprehensive med spa experience while maximizing your budget. 

  • Access to exclusive events
  • Monthly treatment perks (like HydraFacial and dermaplaning!)
  • VIP discounts on skincare products, cosmetic injectables, skin rejuvenation lasers, and body sculpting treatments

With 4 different memberships to choose from, there’s something for every client to get the best benefits for their unique needs. Whether they’re looking to target specific skin conditions like acne or melasma, or looking for general anti-aging treatments, this membership is great for all ages and skin types!

Members also receive complimentary comprehensive consultations with the providers of their choice so we can find the best combination of services for their long-term goals.

A Med Spa Gift Card

If all of this sounds a little too “committal” for the person you have in mind, but it all sounds like something they would be interested in, you can ALWAYS purchase a gift card!

A med spa gift card will allow the recipient to choose how they spend their credit. We can apply a gift card to ANY service or product we offer, making it extremely flexible and personalized.

Unconventional Gift Ideas for Men

Whether it’s your brother, significant other, or your even your dad, purchasing them a gift card to a medical spa can help you surprise them with the self-care they deserve 😇 In addition to all of the above, there are a few specific treatments for men that are very popular when it comes time to redeem his gift card!

Body Sculpting

If he’s already a gym-buff and loves discovering new, innovative ways to tone and sculpt, EMSCULPT and CoolSculpting are two professional-grade body sculpting treatments that can help compliment his routine!

Exfoliating Skin Treatment

Give him the gift of smoother skin! Many men struggle with dead skin cell buildup, leading to ingrown hairs and other skin irritation. Gift him microdermabrasion, dermaplaning, or chemical peels. We can customize any of these treatments so he gets the most out of just one treatment session. 

Anti-Aging Products

Make caring for your skin a new part of your relationship! Whether it’s sunscreen, moisturizer, toner, or exfoliation, our male clients are just as deserving of high quality, medical-grade products as anyone else and can be a great “giftable” for your hubby. Here are our top 3 recommended anti-aging products for men!

Hair Regrowth

If he’s complained to you in the past or expressed self-consciousness over hair loss, treat him to a series of professional, non-invasive hair regrowth treatments. 

Wrinkle Relaxers

Perhaps THE most popular med spa treatment for men in Menlo Park is Botox. You might be surprised how many guys find a new appreciation of their skin after experiencing a smooth, wrinkle-free look for the first time.
