Reduced facial hair growth. Is there a solution?

Hello Sir,

I am 31 year old man, married with a kid and extremely happy with my sexual life. I am 5 feet 10 Inch tall and 75 kg weighted great bodied man. However adverse to all these traits I have scanty facial hair growth. Even if I do not shave for 2 months, the visibility of my beard is very bleak. I also do not have hairs on my chest or hand. But I have very good growth of hair in pelvic region as well as legs. I do not have any ancestral history of such scanty hair growth. My father and two brothers are extremely hairy. Even my maternal side men are very hairy guys. Like other men I love to keep a moustache or french beard but its not possible for me. I really want a solution to this. Hope to hear from you soon.

Hello Vikas,
Welcome to healthcare magic.
You seem to be having constitutionally less facial hair. As your other secondary sexual features are normal you need not worry about any disease.

To make the existing hair thickened you can apply either 5% minoxidil gel or bimatoprost (prostaglandin analogue) solution. Get it prescribed by your dermatologist.
Hope this helped.
Take care
