    I am a fair-complected Caucasian with dark hair, and after going through menopause I experienced heavier dark hair growth on my upper lip and chin. A girlfriend suggested shaving, but I have sensitive skin and shaving created all sorts of problems. At-home waxing and depilatories were likewise too harsh. Finally I went to my dermatologist, who prescribed Vaniqa. Within two months the facial ha ... Show Full Comment

    This is a miracle drug, though no "magic bullet" - it does take awhile before you see results, so patience is needed. I am a very light-skinned woman in my early 30s, and since my teens have suffered from dark, coarse hair on and just below my chin. The hair is as coarse and dark as a man's beard! The affected area was initially perhaps only half an inch across, but over the years ... Show Full Comment

    I have purchased 6 tubes of Vaniqa, 3 tubes at a time, and have given it a lot of time to work, and am very disappointed. I see no change and wish I had spent the money towards lazer hair removal. This is just a temporary solution anyway if it would work. It certainly has not been the results they advertise.

    I must say that when I first started using this product (which is very expensive for such a little amount), it seemed to be working. The pharmacist at Long's said I would have to continue forever to see continued results; but I have to say after initally using it; I don't see results. I've been using it for some 5 months, and still have to shave my upper lip and chin. My chin being the ... Show Full Comment

    I have always had more hair than I'd like on my upper lip, and now I also get a few chin hairs. Although the hair was fine and I bleached it regularly, the moustache would actually show up in photographs. I asked my dermatologist for Vaniqa and she warned me that it would take at least 8 months to see any difference. She also told me that I would need to use some form of hair removal at the ...
