What is Vaniqa?
Vaniqa is a cream that is applied on the face for unwanted hair growth. The active ingredient, eflornithine, prevents new hair growth at the areas that are treated, and eventually the hair growth is totally stopped. The active agent, blocks the enzyme ornithine-decarboxylase, which is responsible for excessive hair growth.
The cream should be used regularly. The product is very effective if applied frequently and consistently.
In contrast to conventional hair removal creams that are offered at drug stores, no skin-irritating ingredients are added to Vaniqa. Using this cream achieves a long-term positive result.
Vaniqa cream composition
Vaniqa is the only hair removal cream with the active ingredient, eflornithine, an irreversible inhibitor of the enzyme ornithine-decarboxylase, which catalyzes the transformation from ornithine into putrescine and other polyamines that regulate the cell growth. This inhibition decelerates hair formation.
What is hirsutism and what are the causes?
means hairy in Latin. It is a term that is used when women exhibit typical-male hair growth. It develops through a change from vellus hair (peach fuzz) into terminal hair (long hair) and can be genetic, hormonal or a side effect of medication. Those different factors can elicit an increase of androgens and thus the hair on the body grows in a masculine way. It is especially common among oriental women to have prominent hair growth, but also in Europe and among fair-skinned and Nordic women, this kind of disturbance can be found.
An excessive hair growth can also be caused by an underlying disease. If the cause is a hormonal dysfunction, it is often because of a polycystic ovarian syndrome. Almost every other woman suffers from PCOS, which is accompanied by too much male hormone, obesity and facial hair. Stubbles on the chin are also a common sign of it.
How does Vaniqa help?
With the help of Vaniqa cream, women who suffer from facial hair can improve their self-esteem, and do not have to constantly shave or remove their facial hair anymore.
Who can use Vaniqa?
⇒ Healthy females from the age of 12 years, who are not allergic to the active ingredient
⇒ Nursing and expecting mothers should not use Vaniqa
How is Vaniqa used?
According to one study, the hair growth slowed down considerably within eight weeks. This conclusion applied to treatments that were massaged at least twice daily, with a gap of eight hours, onto clean, dry skin and then left on for at least four hours.
In order to achieve long-term results Vaniqa has to be applied for at least 4 months, since if stopping after only eight weeks of using the cream, the initial condition reappears. If there is no clear improvement after 4 months, the therapy with the cream has to be terminated.
How fast can results be expected?
The first noticeable results are visible after 6-8 weeks, if the cream is applied regularly. The result is a remarkable decline of the hair growth and the hair becomes much thinner or does not grow at all anymore.
Side effects, contraindications and drug interactions
Side effects appear very seldom and even if they do happen, they are weak and disappear after a few weeks.
⇒ Razor burn
⇒ Stinging and burning sensation, if the skin was irritated by, for example, epilation or plucking. After such hair removal, the cream should not be applied for at least 30 minutes.
Hair growth can be stimulated by taking medication against hormonopoietic tumors, as for example Cyclosporine. This is also true for glucocorticoids that help with rheumatic or allergic diseases, and phenobarbital and phenytoin against seizures. If you are undergoing hormone therapy, which has a similar effect to the male sex -hormone, the cream should not be used.
In case of kidney or liver diseases Vaniqa should not be used. Under no circumstances should the cream be used when suffering from cancer or tumours.
