There are two main reasons for this.

First, the dose might not be appropriate. Do check the user's manual/leaflet with the cream and make sure you are using this appropriately.

Second, if this does not help, then you might need other stronger and more effective methods to removal of hair as this cream might be insufficient for treating your problem.

Hormonal pills etc. are the more effective options, so you can discuss these with your doctor to chalk out further management plan.

Many experts in this area have stated that Vaniqa alone is not much effective but when used in combination with other techniques like Laser or Hormonal pills, the results are best.
