Vanishing Ink

Tattoo removal company

gets new equipment

By KANE COUNTY CHRONICLE | | Sept. 5, 2017

ST. CHARLES – Vanishing Ink Laser Aesthetic Center, a St. Charles company that removes tattoos, recently acquired a new top-of-the-line laser, the Discovery Pico, the company announced in a news release.


The equipment, made by Italian company Quanta, uses two types of laser pulses, which allow for more accurate and effective tattoo removal, the release stated.



Only seven of the units have been sold in the United States, and Vanishing Ink, 2020 Dean St., St. Charles, has the only one in the Midwest, Quanta said in an email.


Vanishing Ink Laser Aesthetic Center – which opened as Vanishing Ink Tattoo Removal – has since expanded its laser services for aesthetics, such as scar reduction, wrinkle reduction, hair removal and mitigation of stretch marks or age spots, the release stated. The facility also offers facials and is a medical provider of Jan Marini skin care products.

“Some patients see the work that we do as giving them more of a fresh start, rather than a medical treatment,” co-owner Diane Gibson stated in the release.


Gibson is a certified laser specialist, the release stated.


“This is why we invest in the most advanced equipment available – to be sure of achieving the best possible results every time,” Gibson stated in the release.
