Brief Answer:
You cannot influence its growth

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. The growth of body hair (including beard) is genetically determined. You cannot increase it. Although androgens have a role to play, increasing androgens would not necessarily increase or thicken a beard. I would therefore insist you not to crave for one unless it seems to develop automatically.

Let me know if I could help further.
