Apply a thin layer of Florexa, to wanted areas of the face and adjacent involved areas under the chin and rub in thoroughly. Do not wash treated area for at least 4 hours. Use twice daily at least 8 hours apart or as directed by a physician. The patient should continue to use hair removal techniques as needed in conjunction with Florexa. ( Florexa should be applied at least 5 minutes after hair removal.) Cosmetics or sunscreens may be applied over treated areas; you should wait a few minutes to allow the treatment to be absorbed.


Florexa doesn't permanently remove hair or "cure" unwanted facial hair. It is not a depilatory. Your treatment program should include continuation of any hair removal technique you are currently using. Florexa will help you manage your condition and improve your appearance.

Improvement in the condition occurs gradually. Don't be discouraged if you see no immediate improvement. Be patient. Improvement may be seen as early as 4 to 8 weeks of treatment. Improvement may take longer in some individuals. If no improvement is seen after 6 months of use; discontinue use.
