Do contraceptive pills reduce facial hair? Done laser treatments. Prescribed Spirotone 25

I would like to know do contraceptive pills also help reduce facial hair.
I have fine long hair on my face (on my upper lip, chin and on sides) and I have taken about 6 laser treatments for it but it did not help at all. My doctor prescribed Spirotone 25. My G.P did my blood test and my hormone seems fine. Do you think Spirotone 25 will helps. I am so frustrated. Thankyou
