In brief: PCOS and hair

Patients with pcos may have thicker and more persistent hair growth.
Therefore, you may use medications to treat the symptoms. Laser hair removal may help as well but it may take more treatments to achieve the desired results. Moreover, there are no long term studies evaluating the long-term effects of laser hair removal in pcos patients.
