What is Vaniqa?
Vaniqa (eflornithine) interferes with a chemical in hair follicles under the skin, which slows hair growth where the medicine is applied.
Vaniqa cream is used to reduce unwanted facial hair in women.
Vaniqa cream does not permanently remove facial hair or prevent hair growth.
Vaniqa cream is for external use only.
Continue to use Vaniqa even if you do not see immediate results. Reduction in facial hair occurs gradually. Improvement may be seen as early as 4 to 8 weeks of treatment, however it may take longer in some individuals. If no improvement is seen after 6 months of use, treatment should be discontinued. Hair growth may return to pre treatment levels approximately 8 weeks after discontinuation of treatment.
