Alternative treatments

Various cosmetic treatments such as tweezing, shaving, waxing, depilating or hair removal creams are used to remove unwanted facial hair.

About unwanted facial hair

some women suffer from excessive facial hair growth. The reasons are usually simply an imbalance of female and male hormones in the body although rarely an underlying medical condition may be the cause.

Various methods are used to remove facial hair regularly (tweezing, shaving, waxing, depilating or hair removal creams).

Vaniqa® cream works differently: it blocks an enzyme which is involved in the production of the hair shaft by the hair follicle, and thus reduces the rate of hair growth.
