Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,
Facial hair is not because of short application of tenovate cream ,that too over hands.If you have got all your tests done,and they have come out as normal,then your case is called IDIOPATHIC HIRSUTISM( excess facial hair)..which means that there is no obvious cause of facial hair growth.The only option left is laser hair reduction .Consult a good dermatologist who has good experience on lasers for the treatment.You have not mentioned your age ,kindly do so.
take care,
