Age, ethnicity, weight, hormones, diet, medication, and metabolism all play a role in the location and thickness of hair on the body, which in turn contribute to the resilience of the hair follicle to treatment.
The first step in solving the dilemma of excess or unwanted hair is to determine its cause. If the problem is not medical then lasers are leading the way to new and more effective ways to eliminate unwanted hair. Other more traditional methods of hair removal include electrolysis, waxing, shaving, plucking or chemical depilatories. A combination of these techniques may be the most ideal approach depending on the goals of the individual. The alternative to removing unwanted hair is to camouflage it by dying or bleaching.
Vaniqa is a medicated cream which when used twice daily has been proven to reduce unwanted facial hair by slowing the growth of the hair follicles. The slower hair growth helps to reduce the number of times it is necessary to employ hair removal methods such as waxing, plucking, shaving, or receiving laser treaments.
