Our skin is a visible part of the body and can have major effects on our confidence about how we approach the world. Struggles with acne, pigmentation, or changes to your skin as you age can lead to feelings of embarrassment.
At Entre Nous Aesthetics we celebrate wanting to show your best self and provide a suite of treatments for skin rejuvenation. Palo Alto, Menlo Park, and Bay Area patients have been trusting us to provide beautiful, natural-looking results for years.
Understanding your skin
Before we dive into our specific treatments for skin rejuvenation in Palo Alto, let’s get to know your skin first.
Your skin contains layers
Our skin is made of 3 main layers. The epidermis, hyperdermis, and dermis. (Dermis means skin!)
Each layer functions a little differently. The epidermis is the surface layer that we can see. The dermis is the thick layer under it where your follicles, oil glands, and blood vessels hang out. Then there’s the hyperdermis below that.
Most of our skin rejuvenation treatments focus on those top two layers.
Collagen and elastin are the building blocks
Two proteins are responsible for your skin’s shape and structure: collagen and elastin. Collagen provides your skin with volume, and elastin maintains its elasticity, or the ability to keep its shape.
You’ll notice a lot of our treatments are aimed at boosting your body’s natural collagen production to create new skin cells.
What happens as we age
As we get older, our skin produces less collagen and elastin, which is what leads to drooping and wrinkles. At the same time, it means that our skin is producing new skin cells at a slower rate so it starts to look dull and tired.
Proper exfoliation and kick-starting your body’s collagen production help maintain bright, renewed skin. Getting started on a professional treatment plan can protect your skin and maintain its health over time.
Treatments to target wrinkles
One of the most common skin concerns we get asked about is how to address or prevent wrinkles. Wrinkles are completely natural, but they can often make us look older than we feel.
Botox & Daxxify
Botox and Daxxify are our two most popular injectables. They’re neuromodulators that help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but they can also be used to prevent wrinkles from forming in the first place!
Neuromodulators work by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles on the face and neck. Our aestheticians strategically injected them to eliminate frown lines, crow’s feet, and more!
Baby Botox injections can be a great starting point for patients looking to prevent wrinkles from forming or dip their toes in the waters of neuromodulators. Daxxify is the longest-lasting neurotoxin and provides results that last almost twice as long as classic Botox injections.

CO2 laser resurfacing works to reduce the appearance of wrinkles by removing the top layer of your skin to reveal the newer skin underneath. This also makes it a great treatment to address scarring and pigmentation issues.
We can tailor our laser skin treatment in Menlo Park to each individual patient by adjusting the depth of the laser.
Deeper laser resurfacing treatments can come with a couple of weeks of downtime but require fewer treatments. Superficial treatments have less downtime, but you’ll need to visit our office every few weeks to get the same results. It’s about what works for your schedule!

Treatments to get rid of acne
Acne is one of the most common skin conditions in the United States, so we see a lot of patients looking to clear up their skin through skin rejuvenation in Palo Alto.
HydraFacial is gentle and safe to use on active acne for people of all skin types and tones. Every step of the HydraFacial can help treat and prevent breakouts!
Experience deep cleansing, exfoliation, and nourishing hydration in this patented 3-step, medical-grade facial. It’ll clear out your pores and soothe your skin.
HydraFacial is a completely customizable treatment as well and can be paired with any other of our aesthetic treatments to provide enhanced results.
Broadband light therapy, a.k.a BBL, is a gold standard intense pulsed light treatment that tackles acne and acne scarring with ease.
The device gently heats the upper layers of your skin (the dermis and epidermis) to promote new and accelerated cell growth. Old acne skin cells die off, and new healthy cells take their place!
The best part is that we can use BBL on more than the face! Say goodbye to bacne too!
Treatments for lost volume
Along with wrinkles, loss of volume is one of the surest signs of aging and can lead to looking gaunt or drooping skin.
Facial fillers in Palo Alto are a popular injectable treatment that addresses lost volume. They do this using hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in your skin.
HA is your skin’s natural volumizer (along with collagen) because it helps with moisture retention and hangs out between your skin cells.
Sculptra is a specific dermal filler that uses poly-L-lactic acid to stimulate your body to create collagen, and the results can feel miraculous.
Because your body is restoring its own collagen, the results from Sculptra may take longer to appear, but they will last longer than typical facial fillers as well!
Sculptra in Menlo Park is an amazing option that many call “their little secret” (which, of course, is a secret that is safe with us!)
Treatments for skin texture and scarring
Scars happen when your body’s collagen production is disrupted because it’s focused on healing the wound. It lays down the collagen fibers in a different pattern! Most scars will fade with time, but we can use these treatments to help speed the process along.
Microneedling comfortably creates thousands of micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s natural wound-healing process. This breaks up scar tissue and boosts collagen and elastin production to replace the scar tissue with new, healthy skin cells.
We offer microneedling as well as several different treatments akin to microneedling, like micro-coring and Aquagold.
Scars are damaged tissue, so treating them requires removing that damaged tissue.
Laser resurfacing increases your natural exfoliation process by removing the superficial layers of your skin, including scar tissue. We can adjust the depth of your treatment based on the severity of your scars.
After the damaged tissue is removed, your body replaces it with newer, healthier tissue to leave you with renewed, smooth skin.
Treatments for pigmentation issues
Our V-Beam Prima laser is an advanced pulsed-dye laser. It uses different wavelengths to treat broken capillaries and shrink blood vessels that are causing any perpetual redness like rosacea We can also use it for cherry angiomas and port wine stain removal.
BBL is a go-to treatment for pigment issues. Our photofacial device can selectively target damaged tissue of sun spots, age spots, and redness without affecting the healthy tissue around it.
There’s no downtime with BBL, and it boosts collagen production, which brightens and volumizes your skin so it continues to improve even after your treatment!
Don’t neglect your at-home skincare routine!
Visiting your aesthetician for skin rejuvenation in Palo Alto but ignoring your at-home skincare routine is like going to the dentist but never brushing your teeth. Gross, we know!
