Vaniqa Cream

Unwanted Facial Hair

Vaniqa is an easy to apply cream that contains the active ingredient Eflornithine. Eflornithine slows down the growth of hair through its effect on a specific enzyme involved in the production of hair and thus works only locally to where it is applied.

Vaniqa is used to reduce the growth of excessive hair and thus reducing the need for other painful removal methods e.g. waxing or threading.

Vaniqa is an easy to apply cream that contains the active ingredient Eflornithine. Eflornithine slows down the growth of hair through its effect on a specific enzyme involved in the production of hair and thus works only locally to where it is applied.


Vaniqa is used to reduce the growth of excessive hair and thus reducing the need for other painful removal methods e.g. waxing or threading.


 

It should be applied to the face only twice a day, at least 8 hours apart. If you experience irritation (e.g. stinging burning), reduce the use of Vaniqa to once daily until the irritation has gone. If it persists contact your doctor. If you have just shaved or used any other hair removal method, wait at least 5 minutes before using Vaniqa.

It may sting or burn if you put this cream on cut or irritated skin. Clean and dry the areas of the skin where you will be using the cream. Apply a thin layer of cream and rub it in thoroughly until no visual residual product remains on the treated areas. If possible, do not wash these areas of skin for 4 hours after applying the cream.

Wash your hands after applying the cream. Wait at least 5 minutes before using make-up or sunscreen on the same areas.

Avoid contact with your eyes or the inside of your nose or mouth. If you should accidentally get Vaniqa into your eyes, mouth or nose, rinse well with water.

Vaniqa is not a depilatory cream, so you may need to continue with your hair removal method, for example shaving or plucking. It may take 8 weeks before you see results.

It is important to continue using the cream.

  • If you do not see any improvement after using it for 4 months contact your doctor.
  • If you stop using it your original hair growth may return within 8 weeks.
  • If you forget to use Vaniqa Apply straight away, but wait at least 8 hours before using it again.
  • If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

     

    Like all medicines, Vaniqa can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.

    Side effects are usually limited to the skin and mild in intensity. In such cases they normally resolve without discontinuation of Vaniqa.
