Breakouts after laser hair removal.

Eversince I started undergoing laser hair removal treatments for my face and neck, I've been experiencing too many breakouts that leave dark spots on my face. My skin was very clear and completely acne-free before. How normal is this? And what can I use to make my skin better until I finish laser treatment and can finally start using medications?

You can get follicular inflammation "folliculitis" (acne) after laser hair removal.  I suggest you see an expert for the proper treatment for this.  Best, Dr. Emer.
