What are the side effects of laser hair removal, and are these bumps permanent? (photos)

I am having laser hair removal on my lower neck, and have red bumps for months after treatment. I have tried Minocycline 100mg twice a day for 1 month with no avail. These bumps seem to be permanent, and are much worse than the ingrowns I started the treatment for. Is it possible that treated hair is stuck under the skin after it dies? Would something like microderm abrasion help? I am a 26 year old male with dark hair and fair, sensitive skin.
