Vaniqa , also known as eflornithine, is a topical cream used to slow the growth of unwanted facial hair in females. This type of medication does not remove hair, it simply slows down the process of new hair growing.
The topical cream solution is applied to the area of unwanted growth at frequencies and dosages determined and prescribed by your doctor.
Common side effects users of Vaniqa may experience include slight stinging upon application, acne, redness, rash and swelling of the lips. If these side effects become progressively worse, contact your doctor or other medical professional for help.
Vaniqa may occasionally be prescribed by doctors for other purposes as well.
