Laser hair removal to area with acne

You don't have acne, you have folliculitis. Laser hair removal is a good treatment to help resolve folliculitis actually. See a doctor for diagnosis and care in addition, but you don't have acne from shaving irritation. That's not how or why you get acne, it's how and why you can get folliculitis.
