Okay let me tell you what I'm getting at.
I have a client that might have a similar condition, who I've been treating for about a year now. A client who has had previous laser on her thighs, she's a mid 50's female. When I began treating her she was pretty advanced into this condition.The area on her upper thighs had many brown/black spots that looked like plucked chicken skin. Inspection of the area reveals the follicles are filled with a white/yellow/black (depending on air exposure and age)substance that can be squeezed out, like puss from a zit. In a great number of these follicles post extraction of the plug of white gooey substance many of the follicles reveal an ingrown hair.But not all. The condition is caused by overactive sebacious glands which fill the follicle with sebum, a naturally occurring lubricant. Sebum contains iron from blood and when it collects in the follicle it can turn brown or black at the surface seeming like pigment. It's actually just the "goop" that people with this condition overproduce. Thankfully the solution is to extract the goop on each follicle, treat a hair if present with electrolysis and dsiable the sebacious gland in the process. I've still got a way to go, but I've made some real progress over the last year clearing up a ton of these things.
