What is Vaniqa?

Vaniqa is a prescription cream which can be applied to areas of skin that are affected by excess facial hair. It is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of unwanted hair slowing down hair regrowth.

Once Vaniqa is applied to hair follicles, it interacts with these follicles, resulting in slower hair growth on and around the area that the cream has been applied to.

This medication reduces rate at which hair grows, but it does not permanently eliminate its growth, so hair removal is still necessary. Vaniqa can be used to help manage the growth of unwanted hair and improve your appearance overall. This can help improve confidence and reduce the need for expensive permanent expensive treatments and the hassle of removing hair every day.

You can buy a 60g tube of Vaniqa online at euroClinix in a dose of 11.5%.

What are the benefits of Vaniqa?

Vaniqa has been clinically tested and proven to effectively treat excessive facial hair growth in women within four to six weeks of use. Because it is a topical cream, applying the medication is straight forward and easy. It is also a cheaper alternative to other hair removal methods, such as laser hair removal or electrolysis.

Why should you buy Vaniqa?

This medicine is clinically proven to decrease the growth of unwanted facial hair. Results can take from 4-8 weeks to appear, if this prescription is used twice a day, at least 8 hours apart. Please bear in mind that individual results may vary.

It is advised that you continue with your standard procedures for hair removal until anticipated results have been attained.

How does it work?

Vaniqa's active ingredient eflornithine affects the enzyme ornithine decarboxylase to treat excessive facial hair growth. This enzyme is responsible for making hair grow, as it is located inside the follicles themselves, and by blocking it from fully functioning hair growth is slowed down to a rate that is more manageable over longer periods of time.

Vaniqa has been proven clinically to provide a short and longer term solution to excess hair growth symptoms in women. As it is applied topically and straight to the affected area other hair growth such as on the head and eyebrows will not be affected. This medication should not be used during pregnancy because it is not yet medically proven to be suitable for use during this time.

You should not use this medicine if you are or have been allergic to it in the past. Vaniqa falls into the MHRA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not medically proven whether eflornithine will harm an unborn baby or not.

How do I use Vaniqa?

A thin layer of cream should be applied twice per day to the desired area of skin. There should be an eight-hour break between applications if possible and you should ensure the skin is clean and dry before use. If at any point you experience skin irritation you should reduce the amount of applications to once per day or in quantity, and if this still continues consult your doctor for more information.

Vaniqa is dispensed in a tube, which should last between four and six weeks. Most women will notice an improvement within that time, although in some cases it may take up to eight weeks. If the cream is still not effective after four months of use you should contact your doctor.

  • Make-up or sunscreen should only be applied to the skin after at least five minutes after using Vaniqa cream
  • It's always advisable that you follow the prescription instructions exactly, as overuse of the treatment may increase the risk of side effects or reduce its effectiveness
  • Simply applying more treatment will not guarantee you better or faster results

What precautions should I be aware of?

You should not use this medicine if you are or have been allergic to it in the past. Vaniqa falls into the FDA pregnancy category C. This means that it is not medically proven whether eflornithine will harm an unborn baby or not. Before taking this medicine, it is advised that you consult you doctor about taking this medicine if you are pregnant.

It is also not known whether eflornithine passes into breast milk. So it is advised that you do not use this treatment if you are breast-feeding without first consulting your doctor. This medicine is not suitable to be used by children under 12 years old.

In the unlikely event you do notice any signs of allergic reaction including swelling around the face, lips, mouth tongue or throat you should discontinue use and seek medical attention immediately.

What are the side effects of Vaniqa?

As with all prescription medications, Vaniqa may cause some side effects, although many are not serious and may subside over time.

The most common side effects include:

  • skin irritation, such as dry skin, itching, rash, or redness
  • hair loss
  • inflammation around the hair shaft
  • stinging, tingling or burning sensations on the skin

If any side effects are particularly concerning, consult your doctor immediately.
