How much will HRT change my face?

I'm trans woman and I'm almost 16 and I wanna start my HRT.

I mostly look like a girl, but my chin and jaw are quite masculine so how much will HRT change it?

And also my cheek bones look quite masculine.

And what age beard starts growing?

    "How much will HRT change my face?"

    The following acronym applies to almost everything transition related:

    YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary)

    Everyone responds to hormones differently and how you react cannot be predicted in advance. Some get a lot of change, some not such and the rest are somewhere in between. The advantage yo do have is starting young as that usually yields better results.

    "And also my cheek bones look quite masculine."

    Don't worry about this right now. I say that because what HRT does is increase facial fat. When combined with loner hair and make-up that may be enough to make you appear feminine.

    "And what age beard starts growing?"

    Any time now. However, it usually starts out slowly and HRT will halt it. What's already present when you start HRT can be removed with laser and/or electrolysis.

    A couple online support sites:

    Whatever masculation has already occurred can only be undone via surgery. Beard growth depends on your genetics. Once those follicles are turned on, you will need laser or electrolysis to get rid of them.
