One of my clients suffers from induced hair growth caused by vaniqua.

Anyway: vaniqa reduces hair growth only during the time it is applied regularly. "Reduces" does often just mean that the hair is growing slower.

Beate r. Thanks for the information! My dermatologist told me that it can't make matters worse. I was a bit suspicious. Thanks for setting that straight.

Wowee! This is the first time I heard this! Is this your client's personal conclusion? This should be reported. I believe there is a form on the FDA website to do this? Or, maybe the prescribing physician should be told? I am really curious about this one. I can't find anything on the internet so far about this, Beate. It is not a life threatening side effect, but if you think this should be reported, here is some information:

Report Problems to the Food and Drug Administration
 You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit the FDA MedWatch website or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

I don't think PLHS is that rare, as an electrologist having returned to Scotland just over a year ago, and now working mainly on Celtic skin types I have already encounter this kind of promoted hair growth. I have had 5 clients so far with this problem. Laser/ipl not sure which, seems to cause this problem on the neck and sideburn area, typical hair growth that I have seen from PLHS is fine long and dark. Will be interesting to see if the scientists can come up with any answers?

I see this enough times where I would not label it as rare. I also see fabulous results with LASER, which makes my job easier. Clients need to be INFORMED of the possibility that this may or may not happen and then be willing to invest more time, money and effort in electrolysis to clean up the extra hair.

Many clients have had successful laser treatments. Though many are also spending too many years having treatments without making progress. I agree Dee the public have to be better informed, thank goodness for websites like this.

Can more laser get rid of paradoxical laser hair stimulation or is the new hair untreatable?

Laser places will tell you 'yes'.

I have not come across anyone who has experienced this and then found further laser improves the situation. And I know a number of people who carried on for a year or more after already going through a course of treatments which lead to laser induced growth.
