How does Vaniqa topical cream work?
The cream interferes with an enzyme found in the hair follicle of the skin needed for hair growth, which slows hair growth and improves appearance. Vaniqa does not permanently remove hair or “cure” unwanted facial hair, but with continued use, the medication will slow and eventually stop unwanted hair from growing.
How to use Vaniqa?
Apply a thin layer of this medication only to the affected areas of the face and chin, and rub in well. It is usually applied twice daily at least 8 hours apart or as directed by your doctor.
Does Vaniqa have any side effects?
Burning, stinging, tingling, and redness of the skin may occur. If these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor.
What are Vaniqa users saying?
Here’s a look at what Vaniqa users are posting on WebMD.
“I am a 67 year old female and this product is amazing. I feel so confident now that I don’t have to worry about facial hair. For me, I saw results after three days. I used to spend 10-15 minutes every other day plucking coarse black chin hairs and finer upper lip hairs. Now I find maybe 3 or 4 hairs every two days and they are finer and lighter,” one use said.
Another user said, “I’ve had to tweeze about everyday for at least 3-5 years now and the amount of hair gets worse. I saw results from Vaniqa after about 2 months and it worked great.”
“I have had some electrolysis performed years ago (with limited success), but then I saw an ad for Vaniqa on TV and just had to try it. I asked my doctor to write me a script. I religiously applied the cream twice daily – along with continual tweezing and then at 4 months everything (hair) disappeared completely,” one woman wrote.
