The brown spots appear to be Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation, and this condition resolves 100% after the treatment stops. It does often take a while ( 6-18 months not unusual) but it does slowly fade away and resolve completely.
I often get hyperpigmentation in the summer from hives in the summer hen I'm exposed to laundry detergent I'm allergic to on my clients as I treat them, by next spring it is always resolved and returns anew a few months later when I'm exposed again.
The presentation of PIH can be caused by either laser, or electrolysis even waxing..
Note that I dont see any indication of the beginnings of pebbling in your picture. Regrowing hairs can be caused by a lot of different things, one is undertreatment, another is inaccurate insertions. If the hair follicles are distorted ( as in the case of most ingrown hairs) it can be very difficult to ascertain exactly where the energy needs to be delivered, which can account for a high rate of regrowth. This wouldnt necessarily be the fault of the electrologist, if you came to them with a leg full of ingrown hairs Waxing is a common cause of ingrowns/distorted follicles and it too can cause pebbling.
