PCOS should be treated first as the hormonal imbalance will keep the balance towards increased hair production. You can opt for laser hair reduction but the efficacy will be much reduced if PCOS is untreated. The treatment for PCOD should continue. Laser hair removal is a good option and is relatively painless. It is permanent hair reduction and not removal. You must understand it requires multiple sessions,may he 6 or more to achieve a desired result. Each session can be performed at gap of 1-2 months depending on rate of hair growth. Maintenance laser session like once every year may then be needed. Charges vary depending on laser machine used and should be around Rs 5000- 6000 for a single session . Hope it helps
