No: This is one more silly myth that has somehow gotten started. Becoming a man is difficult enough without this stuff. Your beard thickness / body hair abundance /tendency to hair loss later is genetically programmed. Junior -- don't worry about the coffee or the beard. Some women prefer more, others less, most women simply like you for who you are.

Facial Hair: Eflornithine(vaniqua) is used to slow the growth of unwanted hair on the face in women, usually around the lips or under the chin. Eflornithine works by blocking a natural substance that is needed for hair to grow and is located in your hair follicle (the sac where each hair grows). This medication is by prescription. There is also laser hair removal for black or brown hair.
