I'm 27 and still can't even grow a patchy beard. I only have some stubble here and there so I'm curious if it would be permissible to use rogaine witch is a chemical treatment applied to the skin to treat baldness. Some people use it to thicken facial hair to. Is it altering gods creation to use it or other similar products?

Well look at it this way:

It's like a haircut in reverse.

Salam ,it's not altering Gods creation but because it's solvent is Alcohol you must wash the area of skin that you used it before prayer & then make Wudu

If it has Ethanol (alcohol consumed in drinks) as the alcohol in most cosmetics is pure.

10Question: What is the ruling concerning the alcohol found in some dental products like mouthwash and others?

Answer: It is Tahir (ritually clean), and permissible to use.
 
 
However in addition to "Alcohol" Rogaine has SD Alcohol 40B which is denatured alcohol, a mixture of ethanol and a denaturing agent. So not sure what the ruling on that would be.

salam, thanks I found the topic about trimming the beard with clippers to a zero useful.

I don't think you can use normal rogaine on your face, brother. I think there is a special type for facial hair that would be more safe to use.

Of course, you could always just keep shaving and eventually your beard will grow in thicker and fuller. I am 34 and still shave mine from time to time because I'm not pleased with how it grows in.
