Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.
Usually Eflora is very effective.
If you are not getting relief with this, the next option is IPL ( Intensed pulse light).
It is a type of LASER.
It gives very good results.
There is no other cream which can give you a permanent result.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you

Hello Doctor,

My query is to suggest a suitable cream for hair removal, apart from veet/fem.
I do agree that eflora is yielding good result growth had been slowed down, but coming back so I need to remove the hair before applying eflora. Please suggest suitable medicated cream for hair removal.
