I had my first Brazilian laser treatment done almost 30 days ago. Since then I've experienced a lot of itching and swelling and small raised bumps especially after I shave. Its almost unbearable. I've been to the doctor twice and all results come back negative for STD's, infections, etc. Except she did notice a large amount of white blood cells and gave me an antibiotic. I have dark hair and light skin. Also, I've noticed an increased amount of ingrown hairs since this treatment.

Redness after laser hair removal
In general laser hair removal can cause temporary redness and bumps for a few days after treatment. Bumps or redness that persist for longer should be examined. Patients with frequent laser hair removal should notice less ingrown hairs, not more.

This common for first treatments. A mild first treatment is the best way to avoid this reaction. We try to increase energy as the hair population is thinned.

It is hard to say without seeing you what exactly is going on. We instruct our patients not to shave much between laser hair removal treatments. The laser treatment itself does not produce in grown hairs. Actually it helps that problem. You need to contact your doctor about this (hopefully you are going to a physician's office for the hair removal)
