Frequently Asked Questions

There is a medical term for this condition, and it is called Hirsutism describes the excessive growth of hair in women. It is relatively prevalent, impacting around 10% of females, and can result in emotional discomfort for a significant number of these individuals.

This hair is often dense and has a dark hue, making it stand out in contrast to other facial hair. It commonly develops in regions linked with hair growth patterns typically seen in males, such as the upper lip, chin, chest, abdomen, thighs, and buttocks.

Excessive female facial hair (hirsutism) has various causes, with the most frequent linked to androgen hormones. Hirsutism can arise if these hormone levels increase or if your body becomes more responsive to them.

The primary reason is often Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), an ovarian condition that can also lead to acne and irregular periods.
Remember that the perception of excessive facial hair varies from person to person, as does what's considered acceptable. While it might be a normal variation, it's crucial to rule out any serious underlying medical issues.

Numerous alternatives are available for hair removal, including methods like waxing, bleaching and threading. Additionally, a prescription medication called Vaniqa is an option. The decision regarding which approach to choose is highly individual for every woman.

Vaniqa cream has eflornithine, a prescription medicine for managing excess facial hair in women. It's not meant for addressing excess hair on other body parts.

Vaniqa is appropriate for women dealing with unwanted facial hair growth, but only after their doctor confirms that there's no major medical cause for the issue.

Just like any medications, there are possible side effects associated with Vaniqa, but not everyone will encounter them.

Since Vaniqa is a cream, the most frequent side effects happen on the skin and involve issues like acne, skin redness, dryness, and irritation.

If your skin becomes irritated or dry when you start using the cream, consider applying it once daily instead of twice daily for a week or two to see if this eases the effects.

If these side effects become bothersome or if you're facing other symptoms that you think might be linked to Vaniqa, discontinue the cream and consult a doctor.
