If i shaved the coarse facial hair off would it grow back thicker and leave stubs in between shavings?
No: Hair is dead. It does not know if you are cutting it or not. Neither does your body. It is an old wives tale that started because when young boys became men and started shaving, their hair got thicker due to testosterone increases, not shaving. Short hair can feel stiffer but that is a mechanical issue, it just feels stiffer, it is not thicker. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: If it grows back thicker then it is purely coincidental but the hair will grow back. ...Read more
Myth: No — shaving hair doesn't change its thickness, color or rate of growth. Shaving facial or body hair gives the hair a blunt tip. The tip might feel coarse or "stubbly" at first but will thin out as it grows. During this phase, the hair might be more noticeable and perhaps appear darker or thicker — but it's not. Another option to shaving is laser hair removal if you want to remove the hair. ...Read more
I used nair face cleanser last night and I was wondering what the facial hair will feel and look like when it starts to grow back in.
Possibly: Assuming you lost the hair from treatment for a cancer in the oral cavity or pharynx, it would depend on the technique. These days most radiation doctors use imrt for head and neck cancers. This distributes the radiation widely and therefore less dose directly to the skin versus older methods. Often in this case the hair will grow back but sometimes more sparsely. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

After treatment of undescended testicles how long will it take for them produce testosterone and make me grow facial hair, more pubic hair etc. ?
Depends: Testosterone production in the undescended testicle is often normal. If you had both testicles undescended, and you have only just had the surgery, you should get a serum testosterone done. You might have additional problems with the testicles overall function. Additional blood work or genetic testing may be needed if the testosterone is low. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

We are doctors...: ...Not fortune tellers. If your beard is just coming in, it will likely get thicker and longer over time, but there's no way to predict such things, particularly sight-unseen. Beard characteristics do tend to run in families, however, so take a look at your father and your grandfathers -- if they can grow a long, thick beard, you will probably be able to as well. ...Read more
How can men make their facial hair grow longer and faster? Any natural medicines that can be used?
Vitamins: I don't believe there is much you can do to make facial hair grow faster or longer. How much and how fast your facial hair grows is a genetic trade and you can't change it. Obviously, however, if you are having a problem in this area, you may need to have your doctor run some tests, such as thyroid studies or even hormonal studies, such as testosterone levels, etc. ...Read more
