Do the dots ever go away?

I’m giving up on dreams of electrolysis and laser, and trying to be content with shaving and epilating my legs. The problem is, whichever I do, I end up with zillions of dots all over my legs wherever a hair follicle exists. Sometimes they look reddish, sometimes brownish. They’re flat, not raised, and they’re not ingrowns. Just ugly dots. A week ago I epilated for the first time in months, and the dots are still there a week later! Are those marks left over from irritation caused by hair removal? Do I just need to keep shaving and epilating until my skin “toughens up” and gets used to it? Do the marks ever go away? How and when?

it sounds like irritation you’re getting from whatever process you’re using. what do you use to shave?
