Inflammation of Hair Follicles After Laser Hair Removal
It appears you are having a standard reaction to laser hair removal. Inflammation of the follicles is a normal side effect. It should resolve in the next few days. You can apply a topical steroid cream for the irritation or itching.
Follicular ediema after laser
It looks like follicular edema that should usually last less than 4-6 days. During the time the dead hair is pushing out you might experience some itchy feeling. Its normal. Apply 1% or higher cortisone ointment. Its a desirable sign and with more treatments, these will be less and less in frequency and prominence.
