Laser hair removal will work. But since it is face, and you have PCOS, you will require sessions, 6-10 and then maintenance sessions indefinitely on regular intervals.
Laser hair removal for PCOS pt
Laser treatments are very useful for PCOS patients. We treat many PCOS patients at our office, but these patients will need ongoing treatments to maintain the hair loss. These patients are some of our most satisfied clients as this is a difficult condition for many of them. I would recommend it as long as your hair type is appropriate.

This will improve the problem but it will be an ongoing problem. You will need LHR regularly. The hairs will gradually get better but not resolve. Control of PCOS helps.
