Thread: Meds and Beard Growth?

  1. Default Meds and Beard Growth?

    I am curious if any of these meds can lead to an increase in facial hair growth? I am 33 years old, and still can't grow a proper, full beard. Just patchy nonsense on my cheeks/side burns . I also suspect low testosterone levels may be at play.

    Any thoughts?

    Dear visitor, If you are looking for an online pharmacy please take a look at the following pharmacies in our Top Rated section. Each one has genuine, uncensored feedback from real users.
  3. Using finasteride may reduce facial hair because it inhibits the formation of DHT, a powerful form of testosterone. It's the reason men in rare cases lose libido or notice increased breast size. Finasteride doesn't increase or promote more hair growth than you naturally have. It blocks chemistry that causes male pattern hair loss in the scalp.

    Actually, I think a few of the ladies would like to know as well... as in what NOT to take to grow a beard!

    (No offence meant to you @parry goric . It's a good question!)

    Beard growth patterns are usually hereditary. Does your Dad or any brothers have thick stubble?

    Testosterone supplements are available and they may increase your beard's potential but I'm wary of stuff like that. If you're genetically pre-disposed to hair loss on your head, such supplements may speed that up. It could be a case of 'robbing Peter to pay Paul'.

    But on the upside (and as an analogy) my brother is a similar age to you and he can't grow a beard. Just a few straggly bits on the chin and sideburns. It purveys a certain youthfulness and makes him look many years younger than he really is.

    Maybe it has the same effect for you but you don't realise it?

  9. I've heard of some people using Rogaine to help their beards grow. Haven't heard as much about finasteride for this purpose though. The obvious problem with these meds is that you have to keep using them and you'll lose your progress if you stop them. Not to mention their side effects...

    There's plenty of channels on YouTube about using Rogaines main ingredient (minoxidil) for facial hair growth. I can only grow hair on my chin, neck, and jawline for the most part and missing the lower part of the cheek. It's not terrible and after a year looks somewhat passable. But my twin can grow a full on Viking beard. So needless to say I'm a little jealous because of my lack of "manhood". At this point I'm not even sure how genetics worked that out. So I was curious one day and googled beard serums and then eventually came across minoxidil which used to be a blood pressure medication. The outstanding side effect was hair growth. Didn't take long for creams and whatnot to be produced. Not sure if I'll go through with it or not but I'll probably shave my facial hair down in the spring and give it a shot. What's the worst that could happen. I guess you can find minoxidil products for super cheap. The only.problem is the length of application which should be longer than half a year depending on who you talk to. And if it's not tampered down you'll lose the gains.

    I've been using Rogaine twice a day on my eyebrows in hopes of thickening them. I started last July and have been following the instructions exactly, but my eyebrows don't seem any thicker yet. There may be some new hairs, but nothing significant. I used to have thick eyebrows; after I was diagnosed as hypothyroid, my eyebrows thinned out.

    Rogaine for beard growth could be tricky because you apply it twice a day and are supposed to let it stay on your skin. So you would need to apply it after washing your face, and if you wash your face more than twice a day, you would probably need to reapply it every time.

    First of all you need to know that there are several factors that influence the facial hair growth speed and amounts. It could be even the consequence of bad diet. But I think it is up to your genes.
