Some men are so eager to have fuller, thicker beards that they’re putting hair-growing medication like Rogaine on their faces.
This treatment is picking up popularity online with beard-growth forums and groups. There you can find before-and-after photos, recommendations, and progress reports.
However, it's a big commitment because the treatment has to be ongoing. The medication has to be applied daily.
Some are also using Minoxidil to convert peach fuzz to a thicker beard.
The FDA hasn't approved the use of topical Minoxidil on any other part of the body except the scalp.
