Re: does rogaine work on facial hair

No. It only works on the hair follicles of the crown, and only those that still produce hairs. It will not create hair follicles where there are none (such as beard bald patches) and will not revive hair follicles that have stopped functioning altogether.

It can work on facial hair. I've seen it happen, accidentally. It made fine blond vellus hair (peach fuzz), which we all have, even if you can't see it, turn into coarse, dark terminal hairs.

You don't have to create follicles (couldn't if you wanted to), we are born with an average of 1000 follicles per sq. inch of skin, every where on our bodies with the exception of the palms of our hands and the soles of our feet.
