Our face is our most visible feature. It’s the way we connect with other people, whether it’s through our sly smiles or a well-timed side-eye. The skin on our face and neck is also the first place to really show signs of aging; after all it has the most exposure to the outside elements like the sun and air quality.
Sometimes, we find ourselves looking older than we feel, and that’s when we start wondering where we can get a little skin rejuvenation. In Menlo Park at Entre Nous Aesthetics we offer a variety of top-of-the-line skin treatments and procedures that can help you reclaim your inner youth.
First, why and how does our skin age?
Aging is a fact of life that everyone will face sooner or later. With our favorite treatments for skin rejuvenation in Menlo Park, you can put it off for a long time.
Collagen and elastin are two proteins that serve as the building blocks for your skin. As you get older, your body stops producing as much of them and this starts after you turn 20! The remaining collagen and elastin fibers become thicker and looser, which translates to wrinkles and sagging skin. Once we reach 40 our bodies don’t produce collagen at all! Without that important structure, our skin begins to lose its volume and structure.
Thanks to the miracle of science, however, we’re able to rejuvenate our skin through treatments that support and prolong your body’s natural collagen production. By using top-of-the-line treatments and procedures, our expert aestheticians can treat almost any skin concern you could possibly have!
Best Procedures for Skin Rejuvenation in Menlo Park
No matter what your specific skin concerns are, our team at Entre Nous can work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan to meet your needs. We pride ourselves in oferring the latest and most advanced technologies on the market for skin rejuvenation.
What we can treat:
- Fine lines
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Scars and stretch marks
- Enlarged pores
- And more!
These are some of our favorite skin rejuvenation procedures, listed from least invasive to most. However, even our most “invasive” treatment requires minimal downtime and many of these treatments can be undergone more than once to help maintain your results for several years!
The HydraFacial is a crowd favorite, it’s your at home skin care routine on steroids to be honest. Plus, you can get it once a month and just keep enjoying the results. The benefits of a HydraFacial are a great foundation for your regular skin care.
With so many different boosters, we can customize your HydraFacial for acne, wrinkles, detoxifying, and more! It can also be paired with many of our other skin rejuvenation treatments and products to further enhance your results.
A lot of our patients love to use a HydraFacial as part of their routine to get ready for a party or other big event because the results are immediate and there’s no recovery time!
A chemical peel will deliver more dramatic results than a HydraFacial but at a cost—just a little more downtime. Chemical peels work by removing the top layers of your skin, essentially just speeding up your body’s natural shedding of older skin cells.
A lighter peel can leave you with just a couple days of redness, but a more intense peel can mean the exfoliation process lasts for a couple weeks. Your aesthetician can help you decide which peel to choose based on your skin type and your desired results.
We don’t recommend getting chemical peels too close to your major social engagements, because the skin needs time to heal!
Broadband light therapy
Treatments with broadband light (BBL) can provide some of the same results as laser skin resurfacing, but with less downtime! In our office we use the BBL by Sciton—a versatile treatment that treats a wide range of skin issues and is suitable for most skin types!
BBL works to reverse signs of aging by gently heating the upper layers of your skin to induce collagen production. It can be used to treat acne, wrinkles, pigmentation and more! Because of the different filters for the device, BBL can be completely customized for your specific skin needs. Broadband light therapy can be used for both corrective and maintenance treatments.
Also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), SkinPen is a micropenning treatment that dramatically improves the appearance of your skin without the same downtime as a laser. SkinPen punctures the topmost layer of skin with tiny needles, which activates the body’s natural healing response and boosts collagen production.
Micropenning, or microneedling, can also help topical skin care products penetrate more deeply into the skin. We can use specialized serums or even PRP to further enhance your results.
Profound RF Microneedling
Just one its own, microneedling can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and stretch marks. When combined with radio frequency (RF) energy in the Profound skin tightening system, the treatment also provides powerful collagen induction results, too. It’s clinically proven to create younger looking skin with just 1 treatment!
The RF energy is transferred directly to the dermis layer of your skin via the small needles, where it’s most effective. While the results are not instant they are, forgive us, Profound.
Most patients realized their full results about 6 months after their procedure.
Ellacor with micro coring technology
Entre Nous is one of the first medspas to start using micro coring in Menlo Park. We use the ellacor system. With ellacor, our patients experience visible, natural looking results without the recovery time of more invasive procedures.
During your treatment, the ellacor device uses a few hollow needles to remove micro-cores from the dermal layer of skin. The depth of the treatment and size of the needle can be set based on your individual needs. Afterwards, your body’s natural healing process kicks in to close cores by producing new collagen, which realigns and tightens the skin’s layers.
Believe it or not, ellacor has even less expected downtime than laser skin resurfacing, with most patients only experiencing 3 to 5 days of recovery. Laser skin resurfacing can take up to a week!
Laser skin resurfacing
If you like the results of all the other procedures, but want to turn them up a notch, you can’t get much better than full laser skin resurfacing. We use the CO2RE laser by Candela for our patients looking for dramatic results in their skin tone, texture, and tightness.
Of course, laser skin resurfacing does require 3 to 7 days of downtime, depending on the depth of your procedure. That’s right! We can also personalize this procedure to create an individualized treatment that’s based entirely on your desired results.
There’s a reason that laser skin resurfacing is so popular—it works! And it can feel much less invasive than procedures with needles.
