Dr Oz: Facial Hair Removal
In this segment, Dr Oz introduced an audience member who stated that she hated her hairy upper lip. She tried bleaching, tweezing the hair, waxing, and even did something called “sugared” to get rid of the unwanted hair. Nothing worked. The most difficult part of having the hair was that she felt people were staring at her lip instead of her when speaking to her. She was a music teacher and her kids always asked why she had a mustache.
Doctor Oz showed an animation and explained what happened when the ovaries changed and made more testosterone and less estrogen. Hair follicles were stimulated and caused more hair in those unwanted areas.
Dr Oz Vaniqa Review
Susan C. Taylor, MD, a dermatologist, brought out a tube of Vaniqa and told the audience that Vaniqa was the first and only FDA (Federal Drug Administration) approved treatment for this problem. Dr. Taylor stated that Vaniqa blocked the hormones responsible for the hair growth. It was a simple procedure that you can do at home by simply applying it twice a day to the upper lip. The tiny tube of Vaniqa cost $100-$120 per tube, however, the tube should last for 2-3 months.
If you’ve tried Vaniqa, leave a comment and let me know how it worked.
