How to grow beard

Question:- Sir My age is 18, how to grow beard hair. My father is also having less beard hair. Can I use Minoxidil & Dermaroller to grow a beard?

Answer :-

As you have mentioned, you’re having very less, thin beard at the age of 18. Your father also has the same kind of beard. This show you’re having a genetic predisposition of having very sparse hair on your beard.

However, there are multiple factors which are responsible for thick, dense hair on beard. The most important is level of your androgens in your body. This is the reason why male has a thick, dense beard. Hair follicles on beard in male, has very long anagen phase, due to this they can grow very long in length. So one can wish to grow their beard very long. However, if genetic factors having short anagen phase hair follicles predominates, then there are chances of having shortened anagen phase of beard in the next generation.

Use of topical Minoxidil can be tried to improve thickness & growth of the hair on beard area, but it will not be able to give thick, dense hair growth as expected. The hair growth with minoxidil will be temporary & may fall out once the application is stopped. Beard hair transplant is also the best option to grow beard hair.


Derma roller can be used as a line of treatment to improve the thickness of hair on beard area, by creating multiple micro injuries on the skin & thus forming new blood vessels beneath the hair follicles to grow them thicker.

If live hair follicles are present on the beard area then & then only it will show improvement after practicing these treatments, but if no. of live hair follicles are not present, or absent in genes then whatever treatment you do, you will not be able to grow beard with these kinds of treatments except hair transplant.

You can try using the above methods under the supervision of board-certified dermatologist who can provide you solution for your problem in 360 degrees.

Male Hair Loss

There are many reasons for hair loss in male ranging from genetics or family history of hair loss, daily or work life stress etc. Hair loss may be genetic or non-genetic. The following section briefs you about few top causes of hair loss and treatment for it.

The most important type of hair loss in males is male pattern baldness or Androgenetic Alopecia. Almost 70% to 80 % of males suffer from male pattern baldness. The main causes of hair loss in men are usually changing in eating habits or crash dieting, change in environment or stress induced due to work or personal reasons. HairMD- hair loss clinic in Pune, provides our patients with proven hair loss treatment which are based on 28+ years of successful clinical experience Dr Dhananjay Chavan, MBBS, DDV & proven medical research. The mainstay of treatment for male pattern hair loss is finasteride and minoxidil. Finasteride blocks the hormones i.e. 5 alpha reductase in the body which are responsible for hair loss. Minoxidil increases blood flow to the scalp and promotes hair growth in bald patches or spots. Apart from finasteride and minoxidil various procedures like platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP), mesotherapy, micro-needling (derma roller), low-level laser light therapy (LLLT) are some of the ways to treat hair loss.

In PRP for hair loss, concentrated growth factors are extracted from the blood of the patient and then transferred back to the scalp of the patient. In micro-needling (derma roller for hair loss treatment) thousands of micro punctures are created in patient’s scalp with the help of derma roller. These micro punctures result in the release of intrinsic growth factors at that site stimulate hair growth.

In low-level laser light therapy (LLLT), light from a cold laser (red laser waves) is delivered to the hair, this laser light stimulates the hair follicles for faster growth. This treatment is US FDA approved for hair loss problem. In mesotherapy growth peptides, plane stem cell extract and various other growth factors are delivered locally to our hair. All these treatment procedures along with medicine are responsible for the great results. We are able to give to our patients suffering from hair loss.
