Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,

You can use minoxidil on face ,but better not 5% as it can cause irritation.You can use a lower strength of the same instead.But you have to understand one thing here that number of hair follicles never increases what we have since birth.With monoxidil you can increase the thickness of hair ,but one would not promise you the result,since you don't have any pathology.But still if you want you can try out the lower strength.
