Once hair becomes course or Terminal tweezing or waxing is the only way to remove it unless you consider laser hair removal. The cream you are referring to is Vaniqa. This cream works pretty well, but it only slows down the hair regrowth and when you stop using the cream, the hair comes back. So, your best bet is to have the laser hair removal. It has to be done in usually 6 treatments because the hair are all growing in different cycles. Most people say they do not have any regrowth of hair after the treatments. Cost wise, it is much more pricey but is the most permanant form of hair removal.
