The Entre Nous Process: What Happens When You Visit An Aesthetician in Menlo Park?

Have you decided to address your skin concerns to feel more comfortable in your skin? Congratulations! The team at Entre Nous Aesthetics is delighted to help you on your journey.

When you’ve earned the reputation and have the experience we have as the top aestheticians in Menlo Park, you can bet we have a process that makes guests feel welcome, informed, and comfortable the whole way through.

The Initial Consultation

No matter if we’re your top choice or if you have a list of med spas you want to check out, it’s important to meet the team that will accompany you on your journey.

Entre Nous offers free consultations with our amazing aestheticians. In our office for your consultation, you will:

  • Meet the office staff
  • Meet with your provider to discuss your areas of concern, goals, and relevant medical history
  • See before and after results of other patients
  • Have all your questions answered
  • Learn what results to expect

After your visit with your provider, you will meet our Client Care Coordinator, Lynn!

Lynn has always had a passion for helping others feel good about themselves. Whether it’s with makeup application, styling hair, organizing spaces, or even helping to decorate their house, she loves seeing the expression when people see the outcome. She says, “You just feel better and less stressed when you or your surroundings look aesthetically pleasing.”

Lynn will schedule your appointments with your provider, provide before and after instructions, and ensure you are well cared for as a guest at Entre Nous.

The day of your appointment

First, take a deep breath and relax! You are in highly skilled hands with our aestheticians in Menlo Park. Leading up to your appointment, be sure to review your pre-treatment instructions (if you have them) to make sure you’re prepared.

Depending on the treatment you receive, we may ask you to shave, cleanse, or avoid certain products like Vitamin A (retinol or Retin-A), Advil/Ibuprofen, and certain supplements.

Please arrive 5 to 10 minutes before your appointment to allow time for parking and enjoying one of our delicious lattes or cappuccinos!

How long is my treatment?

The length of your treatment depends on which procedure(s) we perform. Facial injectables are typically quick, 15-minute appointments, but CoolSculpting may last 60 to 90 minutes.

We can perform certain treatments, like fillers and Botox® or a lash lift and brow lamination, in the same appointment while other treatments on your plan, like Profound skin tightening and CoolSculpting® may need to be spaced out for optimal results.

What procedures go well together?

Some procedures are especially complementary to one another. Such as

Depending on the treatment you receive, you may leave our office to continue your regular daily routine, or you may need to go home and relax. Lynn and your provider will make sure you know the exact post-treatment instructions to follow.

With most aesthetician services, downtime is not necessary. However, if you receive a facial laser treatment or a chemical peel, you may require several days of social downtime to allow your skin to heal.

After your treatment

Now for the fun part—enjoying the results! Some treatments, like facials and dermaplaning, provide immediate results (hello, glow! ✨) while others take some time or several sessions for the results to emerge.

Whether you’ll get immediate results or gradually improving results largely depends on the depth of the treatment. Treatments designed to boost collagen production, like Profound skin tightening, many scar treatments, or cellulite treatments, offer the best results following a custom-designed treatment plan with sessions spaced safely apart.

A note on your at-home skincare routine…

The way you treat your skin every day has the longest-term impact on your skin’s health. If you do not follow a consistent skincare regimen, you risk diminishing the results of your in-office treatments.

Just as important as consistent care, you must use the right products! Standard OTC skincare products can be great for moisturizing your skin, but medical-grade skincare products have higher concentrations of active ingredients to actually make a noticeable difference.

The aestheticians in Menlo Park at Entre Nous are experts in creating at-home skincare routines that work for your goals and lifestyle. The routines we create help to continue to improve your skin between visits to our office.

Don’t forget that besides keeping your body functioning optimally, eating a healthy diet with fresh foods, lots of water, and exercise also helps your skin appear the best it can!

Get to know Lynn Dow, our Client Care Coordinator!

Lynn has been a member of the Entre Nous family for 4 years. She is incredible in her role at our office, and our clients couldn’t be happier with the care she provides.

A Bay Area native, Lynn grew up in South Bay. Though she’s moved to other states several times in her life, she always ends up back home. She loves her small but incredibly close family and enjoys spending time outdoors with her husband and “glamping” in her RV.

At Entre Nous, Lynn loves seeing clients through their journey and feels most fulfilled when people feel great about themselves. You can always count on her scheduling a HydraFacial before a big event, and she says she can’t live without Botox! “It really has done wonders to prevent lines from appearing.”

The knowledgeable, caring team members and incredible clients at Entre Nous keep Lynn loving her job. Thanks to her big heart, when she’s ready to retire from her career, Lynn plans on opening an animal rescue and sanctuary ❤
