I was just wondering if anyone has heard anything about this stuff
http://www.vaniqa.com/
It is a prescription cream to stop/slow down hair growth.

I used this and had great success with it. Considering the severity of my problem, it did an amazing job.

The best price I found for it was at Drugstore (hope I'm allowed to say that? - apologize if I broke any rules) My pharmacist told me their price was about what they paid for it. I think it was about $55. The tube lasts a very long time.

It stopped about 80-90% of the hair growth on chin and under chin. It slowed, thinnned and generally stopped about 50% of the hair growth on my upper lip. I suffer from Polycystic Ovary disease and it was the best thing I've ever used.

The tube lasts a very long time. I found using it 1X per day was enough and at the beginning you tend to put on more than you need, you eventually realize you can use a lot less and still get the same effect. Using it for upper lip, chin and large area under chin a tube lasted me about 4+ months, but YMMV.

I have heard that a low percentage of people have breakouts, but I never experienced this and I think this side effect is very low. The cream is not greasy, abosrbs easily and didn't disrupt my makeup application or skincare routine.

Hope that helps.

I'm so glad someone brought this up. I was actually about to go to my derm to get a prescription for this to at least try. I'm so sick of my facial fuzz, especially around my mouth and around my jawline. I definitely want to give this a shot!

I didn't get this for a long time because the cost was so high - I think it runs over $100 or close to it in most drugstores and I kept looking at the tube thinking I'd be going through one every month. Between finding it at a better price and just tired of dealing with waxing and endless tweezing, I got it.

Remember, you're going to use a little more in the beginning, but if you pay close attention you'll realize you don't need much and it spreads quite nicely. I applied a very thin layer.

I want to say, if it helped me, it can help anyone. Although I realize there are people with worse problems than mine, my problem is bad and I also have dark thick terminal hairs that are very hard to remove. Because of the hormone problem, the hair on my face grows very quickly. Where most people can have a waxing once every few weeks, mine barely lasts 5 days.

When I first read this post, I thought, "Why would anyone want to stop or slow hair growth? I'm trying to grow my hair!" Then I realize you're talking about facial hair. Wow, awesome! Would this help with leg and underarm hair, too?

Yes, sorry - I didn't know if it was against the rules to post URL's.

You can look up the price there even if you don't have a prescription, I think it's about $55. Again, the tube lasts a long time I was using it 1x per day on upper lip, chin and allover under chin.

I think it would be too expensive to use for legs and underarm hair.

can you buy it from that website without a prescription? I would like to try it since nothing has worked for me electrolysis(it gave me uneven coloring) Yag laser(did nothing) IPL and polaris (did nothing).I would like to try it and I think you can get a 10 coupon off on it at skinmedica.com which makes it(They make awesome skin products too like their vit c and TNS recovery complex that makes your skin look young)
