Once considered a cosmetic enhancer for women, Botox Cosmetic has now become much more popular with men as a nonsurgical way to help alleviate wrinkles and look younger. In fact, Botox use in men of all ages has increased by over 300% since 2000 – even more than it has for women during that time!

Botox is used to help with moderate to severe wrinkles, particularly frown lines and crow’s feet. It was approved in the US in 2002 and is now approved in 79 countries. There are more than 400 articles published in scientific journals related to the use of Botox, and it has been used now by millions of people, demonstrating the benefits and longevity of this cosmetic enhancer.

As we age, several things happen. Our faces lose subcutaneous fat over time, and we lose elasticity in our skin. The repeated creasing of our skin becomes more prominent. Botox works by immobilizing the muscle, allowing a smoothing of the skin.

Results may vary for you – you may see results after several days, with peak effects coming at around two weeks. Typically, the results will last three to four months, in all. Having more procedures may allow you to go longer between procedures.

*Individual results may vary

For men, the results should be subtle – with family and friends noticing a difference without knowing exactly why.

As with any medical procedure, the results are only as good as the practitioner’s ability. At Vanishing Ink, we advise that you always seek the services of a medical doctor, trained and certified in the practice of injectables. With proper care, Botox is a safe and highly effective treatment. Even so, there are several myths associated with the use of Botox.

Myth #1: Botox will make you look “like you’ve had work done.”

Truth: Administered properly, Botox subtly smooths the moderate to severe lines around your eyes and forehead.

Myth #2: Botox takes too much time.

Truth: Botox Cosmetic can work with busy schedules. The treatment takes about 30 minutes per session, and requires minimal downtime or recovery. At Vanishing Ink, we will customize appointments to work around your schedule.

Myth #3: Botox Cosmetic is only for women.

Truth: Not at all. Botox Cosmetic is FDA approved to treat all adults, pending a doctor’s approval. In clinical studies for moderate to severe frown lines and crow’s feet, 12 to 17.5% (depending upon the specific treatment provided) of patients treated with Botox Cosmetic were men.

At Vanishing Ink Laser Aesthetics Center, Dr. Mark Gibson is on hand to perform evaluations and answer any questions you have as you consider your options with Botox. Give us a call to make an appointment for your free consultation!

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!
