Vaniqa contains the drug Eflornithine 11.5% and is the only licensed cream available to reduce hair growth. The treatment works by slowing an enzyme in the hair follicles therefore greatly reducing the rate of hair growth.
Vaniqa cream must be applied twice daily and used regularly for 2-3 months before you will see a benefit. Continual use is required to maintain the effects of the treatment.
The treatment should be left on for 4 hours and may be applied after other hair removal techniques. Your regular cosmetics can be applied 5 minutes after using Vaniqa.
