Why is Vanica cream prescribed?
Vaniqa (Eflornithine) cream is a drug prescribed to retard the growth of excessive and unwanted facial hair in women. Common areas of unwanted hair growth are under the chin or around the lips.
What does it do?
Eflornithine acts by restricting a natural substance (enzyme) in your skin necessary for hair growth. This enzyme is found in the hair follicle of the skin and it functions to regulate the growth of your hair. This leads to slower hair growth and may improve the appearance of your hair, making it thinner and lighter. However, the use of this product does not completely eliminate unwanted facial hair.
How should I apply it?
Vaniqa is available as a 13.9% cream in 15g, 30g, and 60g tubes. This medication is only intended for application on the skin.
Before applying Vaniqa cream, you may remove your unwanted facial hair using your current method of hair removal such as shaving or plucking. Make sure to wait at least 5 minutes before applying the cream.
To apply Vaniqa cream:
- Wash and dry the areas where the cream will be applied.
- Apply a thin layer to the affected areas of the face and rub it in thoroughly until it is absorbed.
- Do not wash the treated areas for at least 4 hours to allow the cream to be absorbed.
- Wash your hands to remove any medication from your hands.
Apply it at the same time each day and wait for a minimum of 8 hours between applications. Regular application is required to ensure the improvement of your symptoms. Results may not be immediate and in some individuals, improvement may be noticeable only after 8 weeks. However, if still no improvement is seen after 6 months, discontinue the use of Vaniqa cream and consult your doctor.
If your skin is damaged, you may notice temporary redness and a tingling or burning sensation. If the irritation persists, stop using Vaniqa and consult your doctor.
Application of cosmetic products or sunscreen should be done after Vaniqa cream has dried to allow it to be absorbed.
In case of accidental exposure to the eyes, nose, or mouth, rinse it thoroughly with water and contact your doctor for any symptoms. In cases where Vaniqa cream is swallowed, inform your doctor immediately.
Apply Vaniqa cream to the area of the skin that is affected. This medication is only intended for use on the affected areas of your skin and should not be used elsewhere as this may cause undesirable effects.
It must be used in the quantity and duration as directed by your doctor. Consult your doctor or pharmacist for any concerns you may have regarding Vaniqa cream.
What if I missed a dose?
Apply the missed dose when you remember it if at least 8 hours has passed since your last application. Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next dose and apply it at your regular schedule. Do not apply extra cream when you miss a dose.
What are the special precautions before using Vaniqa Cream?
