This treatment will prevent future hair growth, but it cannot make your existing hair fall out. Therefore, in order to be effective, it must be used in combination with traditional hair removal methods (shaving, plucking etc).
Vaniqa is one of the only hirsutism treatments out there that can be used with any skin colouring and hair pigmentation.
This cream is not an over-night, miracle cure for hirsutism. Results are gradual and you probably will not experience any noticeable improvements until at least 8 weeks of continued use.
According to official studies, after 24-weeks, results were as follows:
This is an ongoing hirsutism treatment product. This means that it will stop working as soon as your stop using it. Official trials have shown that after 8 weeks off of the product, hair growth returned to how it was before the facial hair removal cream was started.
Vaniqa is only available on prescription so you need to discuss with a doctor whether or not it's right for you. This can be any doctor, i.e, your regular GP, a dermatologist or one of our London-based online doctors.
Our doctors can establish your suitability for Vaniqa, based on an online consultation and post the medication to an address of your choosing.
Vaniqa is very effective at suppressing unwanted hair growth. Studies found it to vastly reduce excessive facial hair in approximately 60% of cases (after 24 weeks of use).
As explained earlier, Vaniqa will not remove any hair that is already there, so it must be used in conjunction with your preferred hair-removal method (such as waxing, shaving or epilating).
Vaniqa is not a permanent cure for hirsutism. Vaniqa's hair-reducing action will cease within two months of stopping the medication.
Vaniqa treats the symptoms and helps to diminish unwanted hair growth, but it doesn't address any underlying causes, should there be one.
Excess male-pattern body hair in women is quite common and is usually caused by chronic and benign disorders (aging, polycystic ovary syndrome). But it may be an indication of a more serious endocrine disease such as cushing syndrome or an androgen-secreting tumour. It is therefore important that you discuss your excess hair growth with your GP to decide whether further investigation is necessary.
Vaniqa suppresses hair growth and should be combined with hair removal methods to achieve the best possible result.
Vaniqa is not suitable for everyone. You should not use Vaniqa if:
In addition to the above, before using Vaniqa, you should make your doctor aware of any of the following:
You should also be aware that taking any of the following drugs can increase androgen levels in your system and exacerbate hair growth. If you are taking any of the following medications this may be something you want to address with your doctor first, before moving onto Vaniqa:
Mild side effects (including acne, tingling/burning and redness) have been experienced in a small number of cases but this is very rare. It is generally safe to use and only 2% of people have ever stopped using it due to unwanted side effects.
Vaniqa should only be used on the facial area. It is not advised to use this treatment on any areas other than those deemed safe to use.
