I don't want to shave my face. Has anyone tried vaniqa cream with any success?

In brief: Somewhat

Vaniqa is an anti androgen therapy.
It is not as effective as systemic drugs. Flutamide or Eulexin (flutamide) is the most effective treatment we have found. Even so, it doesn't remove or necessarily treat hair that has completely transformed to terminal hair. These hairs are like eyebrow hair and may or may not respond.
