Vaniqa is a popular and effective prescription medication that is used as a treatment for excessive facial hair growth in women. Vaniqa comes in the form of a topical cream which is applied to the area of hair growth to effectively reduce the excess growth and minimise the visibility of the hair. Vaniqa contains the active ingredient eflornithine, and usually shows visible results within four to six weeks.

With Vaniqa, women no longer need to worry about the discomfort and potential embarrassment that comes with having excessive facial hair. At HealthExpress, you can buy Vaniqa online easily and securely with the option of both same-day or next-day delivery.

What are the benefits of using Vaniqa?

Vaniqa is clinically proven to treat the growth of excessive facial hair in women, with results visible within two months. A particular benefit of this medication is the fact that it comes in the form of a cream, meaning it is very easy to apply it directly to the affected area. Many women choose this treatment option as it is a far less expensive than a medical procedure such as electrolysis and is considered to be very safe with a low risk of side effects. Vaniqa is dispensed in a tube which contains a four- to six-week supply of the cream.

How does Vaniqa work?

The active ingredient contained in Vaniqa, eflornithine, affects an enzyme called ornithine decarboxylase in order to treat facial hirsutism. Ornithine decarboxylase is present in the hair follicles and is necessary for them to grow. By blocking the action of this enzyme, the eflornithine is able to significantly slow the growth of new hair.

It can take time for Vaniqa to take effect and it's therefore recommended that you continue using it for at least eight weeks. If you do not see any improvement after four months, you should speak to your doctor. Each tube has enough to last for four to six weeks of treatment.

How to use Vaniqa

Vaniqa should be applied directly to the affected area in a thin layer twice per day. You should leave a gap of a minimum of eight hours between applications and make sure the application site is clean and dry. If you notice some irritation at the point of application, such as some mild stinging or burning, you should reduce the number of applications to once per day. If this does lead to improvement, you should contact your doctor for further advice.

It is important to continue taking the cream as indicated and you should see an improvement within eight weeks. If you have been using Vaniqa for four months and have not seen an improvement, you should contact your doctor.

You should wait for at least five minutes before applying sunscreen or make-up to the application site. Wash your hands thoroughly after you have applied the cream.

Should I be worried about side effects?

Like any prescription medication, there is a very small chance that Vaniqa could cause some very mild side effects. These should not cause you any more bother than a mild irritation and should not last for very long. They could include some skin irritation, ingrown hairs, dry skin, cold sores and changes in skin pigmentation, among others. If you are concerned about any side effect you are experiencing, you should discuss them with your doctor.
