In brief: None

Facial hairgrowth or hirsutism is a slowly progressive problem due to over exposure to male hormones, known as androgens.
Shaving has no effect. As long as the hormone is abnormal the growth will worsen. Treatments can change the hormone environment and improve the condition. Seek a dr. With interest in this area.
