Vaniqa anyone?

SnarlsSnarls Registered Users Posts: 2,537
Anyone have experience with this cream? (vaniqa. not to be confused with vagina.)

I really need to go back for electrolysis on stubborn hairs popping up in new places (they've gotten crafty now and hide under the chin and jawline area where it's tough to see them).

Just wondering about the Vaniqa and if anyone got good results from it. I guess it's not permanent (the hair comes back if you stop using it).

    I thought it might be the female version of Viagra! :blob7:

    I'm not drinking and I thought it was vagina transposed. What a weird name for a product!

    I can't believe you all are shooting down my come on!

    I'll change the title. Doesn't sound like anyone uses this stuff. (And no, you can't use it around the vagina either!)

    No fears...I'm usually the first to misread titles but I guess that doesn't apply when it's a title you write yourself. Did it change? Because it's still appearing as Vagina Anyone on my computer. Guess I need to clear my cache.

    I'm surprised no one reported my post as spam! (and yes, it is a rather pecular name for a product, probably you're supposed to think of your facial hair just VANISHING and being VANQUISHED or some such...:shrug:)

    I read that it's pronounced vaniKa versus vaniqUa. :scratch:

    I read in Oprah magazine to use this cream instead of laser treatment because it's cheaper. But I question that. It can take up to 2 months to see results from the cream, the cream doesn't work for everyone, and when you stop using it the hair comes back. It isn't cheaper if you have to keep buying it (you need an Rx from the doctor and insurance usually doesn't cover it) year after year. Electrolysis has been cost effective for me and the hair removal is permanent. I don't think I have any hormonal balance because new hairs pop up out of nowhere. What I need is a way to kill dormant folicles so they don't keep getting ideas.

    I've never used this (but knew it wasn't vagina because I've seen the ads on tv. hee.).
    I can't afford lasers or electrolysis so I just continue to pluck my many chin hairs along with my unruly eyebrows. It's a pain in the arse but it's easy and cheap.

    I used it for a couple of years. It's gotten very expensive since my insurance doesn't cover it and I've dropped it. Gone back to the hair removal cremes every 1-2 weeks. Vaniqua works but takes several weeks initially and you have to apply a.m. and p.m. Personally, I'd go with a laser treatment if its really bothering you. What the Vaniqua will cost you in 4-5 months would cover a permanent laser treatment,

    The place where I go for electrolysis now offers laser as well. They never suggested it to me, but I'm going to ask them what machines they're using and if laser would work for me.
