Do you have normal menstrual periods? Normal scalp hair? Acne? Obese? Diabetic? On any meds or birth control? Abnormal body hair? Facial hair since what age? Family with same thing? First check if your hormones are normal.
Shaving, waxing, laser, plucking are all useful. Removing hair does not make it grow any thicker. Removing hair does not make it grow faster.

Facial hair usually is hereditary, if you look at your parents and they are ,then you know you inherited it.If you have been waxing or plucking it ,it will get coarser or heavier. If neither of these senrios are true you need to be worked up
