Testosterone peaks then, but it does not disappear after the peak. There continues to be testosterone production for the rest of life, except it can fall a bit in old age

Beard growth and testosterone are closely linked. However, they aren’t the only factors that determine the thickness, shape and rate of beard growth. Genetics is also a huge factor. Also, growing a good-sized beard takes time. You’re more likely to see older people with thicker beards because they’ve had more time to grow out their beards.
