Is Biotin safe to take as a teenager for beard growth, have a solid beard going at 17 but is patchy. I'm also on accutane if that matters. Thanks?

Safe but useless: Taking biotin is safe but it will not make your beard grow any better. Give your beard some time and it is likely to even out.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. ...Read more

Could biotin help me grow a full beard?

Could biotin help me grow a full beard?

Misinformed?: Hair is made up of proteins. Not vitamins. If you do not have hair follicles on your face and cannot grow a beard vitamins will not in any way change your genetics or give you hair follicles where you have none. 5% of men do not have any facial hair follicles and up to 20% of men do not have enough follicles to grow a full beard. Biotin will not make a difference here. ...Read more

Realize: That usually a man's facial hair pattern is set by his late teens through early 20s. It's entirely possible that may never grow a full, thick beard. And it would suggest anything is wrong with you, just like not every man is six feet tsll, not every man can grow a thick beard. Biotin isn't likely to hurt you but it's also unlikely to lead to you growing a thicK beard. ...Read more

What is good for hair growth besides biotin?

Hair Loss: If the problem is male pattern hair loss: sadly biotin fails to help many patients, but at least is harmless. I would try topical Minoxidil if you desire something OTC (without prescription). The most likely medicine to help you would be Propecia, (finasteride)which your family doc could prescribe.
