The laser hair removal doesn't typically cause acne.  You may have gotten infected with staph aureus which is a superficial bacterial infection.  You may need an oral antibiotic to rid this acne once and for all.  I suggest you go to your dermatologist to have a culture done and treatment.

You may have an infected folliculitis on your face.  Consult a dermatologist who will culture the pustules to determine which oral antibiotic would be appropriate for you.
