Which to do first, the hormonal or laser treatment?

hi Doctor, I m Keerthi (female 22 yrs, height:5.2 feet.weight:65). 2 yrs back i had abnormal periods i.e, once in 2 or 3 months. i got my harmonal tests done. testosterone was 86.10 NG/DL..got few tablets from my gynec. i have not checked it currently but my periods are regular as i reduced my weight. but my problem is i still have thick hairs on my chin. Thought of going for laser hair removal. I needed your advice whether i need to go for harmonal treatment first because i saw many posts of ppl on net who are done with hair removal but still hair is growing back.... please do suggest me....

yes you are right, it is better you go for hormonal check up first to ensure that any hormonal balance is not there, then only laser hair reduction treatment will give you d desired results.
