I'm 23 about to turn 24, and I have a baby face which I can't stand. I do not look my age, and I probably look 5 or 6 years younger. I always get those baby face comments which I'm tired of. I really can't grow any facial hair, and if I do, after a week, I look all scruffy. Meaning, I can't grow a goatee, or even a beard which would really make me feel better about myself. Is there anything than can help me grow facial hair?

Is There Anything Than Can Promote Facial Hair Growth
Facial hair pattern is a fixed & specific to races & families. I think hair transplant is the only best option in this regard.
Hormonal Evaluation or Beard Transplant
You might want to evaluate your hormones to see if there is anything going on. In addition, as has been mentioned, a hair transplant procedure maybe your best option.
Increasing Facial Hair Growth
Very little can be done about your problem...facial hair is totally determined by genetics. Even products such as rogaine can cause minimal facial hair growth.

Increasing facial hair growth is not possible except with time some men will get more bears by the time they reach 30. Be happy that shaving is not a problem for you.
Options for Increasing Facial Hair
This may or may not be a permanent condition. I suggest you use minoxidil (Rogaine) 5% once a day for a few months and see how well it works. A facial hair transplant can always be an option as well. It is important that you consults with a plastic surgeon that specializes in these procedures.

Hair Transplant vs Rogaine
There is not much you can do to if you were born without the genes for facial hair.
Some have tried Rogaine but with little success.
Other option would be a hair transplant from the back of your scalp to your face.
We have done this for eyebrows, goatee, and beard.
