It’s been about a month since I started Vaniqa. Actually, technically it’s been five weeks, but I didn’t bother applying Vaniqa during the week I had the flu. Nor did I shave, and I can tell you that yes, more hair has definitely grown in on my chin since the last laser treatment. But as for the Vaniqa, the various papers did say results can begin to be seen in four to eight weeks. So have I noticed any change?
Well, within the first few days, I started getting pimples on my chin. This may have coincided with the beginnings of the flu, as I sometimes get skin breakouts when my immune system goes kaput. When the flu was gone, so were the spots, but I am also using Polysporin cream to help prevent future skin infections.
Other than that?
I'm pretty sure I’m getting into an awkward stage where the hair is noticeable in the morning, but not quite long enough for a comfortable shave. This is leading to some irritation after a couple of days of consecutive hair removal, and reviving my old habit of staying at home on weekends to give my skin a day off. And this, aside from the acne side-effect, is what I was dreading about starting Vaniqa.
However, it’s early days. Things could still get better, so I’m sticking with it. Another Vaniqa report in four weeks!
