    Does anyone know if taking testosterone post puberty has the potential to add masculine facial features, such as brow protrusion?

    I've heard conflicting thoughts on this.

    Human Growth Hormone can do this, also enlarged lower jaw.


    Yer hgh is widely acknowledged as effecting the skull after puberty and studies have been done on it effecting mandibular growth.
    I'm not aware of any studies regarding injecting testosterone and its effect on the skull.

    Some people are adamant it can still enhance masculine features post puberty.

    I think that facial features of men are given based on exposure to prenatal testosterone. I don't have any source for that but you can easily google if it's true. And even though it doesn't mean that your hypothesis isn't true I really doubt it is. I've never heard of such a thing.

    I think it depends on your genetics. You see this with transgender men who are on testosterone as part of their hormone replacement therapy. It will cause changes around the body, like hair and muscle growth, but not everyone develops a masculine face.

    The poeple who are adamant about it probably confuse the effects of testosterone and effects of working out.

    As you might know your head is made of more than just your skull. The more muscular you are the bigger some of your facial features are. The more lean you are the more visible those features are.

    Maybe these people were taking testosterone at the same time their face changed for other listed reasons.

    It's possible but it really depends on how much you convert testosterone to DHT or dihydrotestosterone. This is the form of testosterone that has masculinizing effects. The combination of high levels of DHT and HGH is what causes even stronger masculinizing effects.

    Do not do this for that reason. You will seriously eff up your body and face for a result that cannot be guaranteed. Unless you need to take this for medical reasons I wouldnt do it.

    Thanks masculinerome, now that you've mentioned the importance of DHT for masculine features I think I remember hearing that before.

    You're right nongmo results wouldn't be controlled and could potentially produce an unenthusiastic outcome, such as too much vertical length of the lower third.
