Less facial hair, thin moustache. Is there any treatment to increase facial hair?

Hi Doctor, My name is Raj. I am 25 Yrs old. My problem is lack of facial hairs, moustache are countable and very thin. I have consulted a doctor for this and as per him I am quite normal and this is been observed in many peoples and no treatment is required / available to increase facial hairs. But, I feel really bad as I still looks like less than 20yrs old. I would appreciate if you could suggest me something that is helpful to increse facial hairs. Thank you Raj

Facial hair depends on our genetics. So if according to your family history any body in your forefathers have had less hair that same thing can be expressed in you also. You can go for Serum testosterone level. If it is good then there is nothing to be worried. The only solution is hair transplantation in your problem.

Welcome to healthcare magic,
As long as your axillary and pubic hair is present and your genitalia has developed normally there is nothing to worry and your doctor is correct. You may apply minoxidil 5 % gel twice a day over the area so that the existing thin hair grows thicker. Get this prescribed by your doctor.
Hope this helped
Take care
