In addition to providing safe and effective laser treatments in a medical setting for hair & tattoo removal, stretch mark, scar, sun spot and wrinkle reduction, we are an exclusive distributer for the Jan Marini research-based skin care line.

The Jan Marini line includes:

A Luminate Hand Cream that is an amazing anti-aging hand cream that produces dramatic results moments after application. Although results vary, you should notice the improved texture, decreased wrinkles, brightening of the overall skin tone and the lighter appearance of pigment. Next time you’re in, ask for a sample and see for yourself.

A Luminate Eye Gel is specifically designed for the delicate eye area that will magically reduce under eye circles after those late night celebrations. Open your eyes to amazing anti-aging results when you apply the fine line and wrinkle reducing gel.

Don't hide your neck! Juveneck includes collagen-pumping peptides and hyaluronic acid to firm, smooth and hydrate the delicate, quick to age neck area. After three months of consistent use, 95% of the users loved the results of improved texture, smoother and softer skin.

RosaLieve is the newest formula to join this innovative line. You will experience relief from unwanted redness and reduce the appearance of facial flushing with this calming cream that is packed with antioxidants and extracts.

Our Age Intervention Retinol Plus will intercept those aging signs with two-time award winning “Best Anti-Aging Retinol” cream. You might remember seeing this “anti-aging cocktail for you skin” on the Today Show as an advanced solution that combines retinol, peptides and antioxidants to improve the appearance of skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage for younger, healthier looking skin. This one won’t irritate your skin like other retinol products can.

Give yourself a gift this holiday season, and enter the new year with a new, refreshing, youthful face!

With all the hustle and bustle of the holidays, skin care may not be the first thing on your mind. Still, you want to look your best for all your celebrations. At Vanishing Ink, we want to help you get through this stressful time during which you get little sleep, overindulge in sweet treats and may have a drink or two more than usual. We understand—we do it too! Here are a few tips:

Wash before bedtime! No matter how busy you are or how many liquid libations you have consumed, always make time to remove makeup before you go to bed. You don’t want a major breakout when visiting your boyfriend’s parents or when you have big plans to ring in the New Year with family or friends.

Quit Smoking! If you’re a smoker, this may be the most detrimental thing you are doing to your appearance. In fact, the experts at Health Magazine stated that smoking accelerates aging so much that smokers look 1.4 years older than nonsmokers, on average. They also say that smoking hampers good blood flow, which keeps skin tissue looking supple and healthy. A good serum containing vitamin C can protect and repair some of this damage.

Get sleep! We know it is tempting to go to holiday parties and stay out late, but you need your sleep. According to WebMD, “When you don’t get enough sleep, your body releases more of the stress hormone cortisol.” In excess amounts, cortisol can break down skin collagen, the protein that keeps skin smooth and elastic.

Moisturize! During wintertime, the air is much dryer and skin dehydration is very common. The consequences of this are not good: Your face will develop more fine lines and wrinkles, as well as appearing dull and flaky. Keep in mind that if you’re using products that contain benzoyl peroxide, salicylic acid or retinol—these will dry out your skin.

The moral of the story is—don’t skip your skincare routine during these busy holidays! And if you don’t have a solid skincare routine, the New Year is a perfect time to start—and we can help at Vanishing Ink. Our Jan Marini Skin Care Management system is designed to provide your skin with everything it needs to achieve a healthy, radiant-looking complexion. Here’s a quick overview:

First, of course, is the Jan Marini cleanser. This cleanser exfoliates the skin to refine pores and improve texture.

Just like the rest of your body, your skin also needs vitamins. In particular, vitamin C is a potent antioxidant found to improve the skin’s appearance by lessening wrinkles while lifting, toning and tightening the look of facial contours, as well as increasing free-radical protection.

The next step in the system is gentle exfoliation with glycolic acid, which reduces fine lines, redness, acne scarring and large pores.

At this point in the process, retinol is used to fight the signs of aging, as needed.

No matter what skincare solution you use, your skin is bombarded daily and needs more than just moisture to stay healthy. The addition of growth factors, peptides and multiple antioxidants in the Jan Marini Skin Care Management system helps to reduce the visible signs of aging, while providing superb hydration to the skin. Be sure that your skincare system includes these benefits.

Finally, you need to protect you skin from the sun. Even during winter months, UVA rays (aging) and UVB (burning) cause major damage to your skin. That is why the final addition to the Jan Marini system is a potent sunscreen.

Call us at Vanishing Ink with any questions about your skin’s health or your skincare management options. We would be happy to help!

It's the perfect time of year to think about fall and renewal. Since the inception of Vanishing Ink, we have primarily focused on advanced laser tattoo removal, but many of you have asked if we might offer additional skin services that remove, revitalize and renew the beauty underneath.

Well - you ask and you shall receive!

Wrinkle, stretch mark, scar and spot reduction as well as hair removal are common services we have been asked about, so we decided to investigate. We poured over the research, inquired with other successful laser aesthetics center—and most important, we've talked with you, our clients—and we are now fully equipped to provide all the services you have asked for.

You might have noticed our new logo—Vanishing Ink Tattoo Removal is now Vanishing Ink Laser Aesthetics Center. We are excited to now offer laser hair removal, skin revitalization, and skin renewal.

Laser hair removal is perfect for both men and women who are fed up with the inconvenience of trying to remove body hair daily. With shaving or waxing, results are only temporary, but with laser hair removal you can eliminate up to 85% of hair in a chosen area permanently.

Over the years, skin becomes stretched out and can lose its elasticity. Skin renewal can help to erase stretch marks as well as scarring, whether they are surgical or caused by acne years earlier. Skin renewal can also help lessen problematic facial wrinkles with our state-of-the-art photo facial.

Skin revitalization can help to even out your skin tone and help erase years of exposure to the sun. It can also help with freckles and age spots, leaving you looking younger after just one session.

Whether you are insecure about redness on your face (rosacea), or age spots on your arms and hands, Vanishing Ink Laser Aesthetics Center will help you to feel great about your appearance. We have invested in the most technologically advanced equipment available. What that means to you is a more effective, holistic laser treatment with less redness: You can even go back to work afterwards!

We invite you to stop by and visit anytime -- we are always happy to show you around our new and expanded center!
