Dermatologist 's  Response

For a long term benefit avoid waxing and tweezing on the face, opt of laser permanent hair reduction after consulting a dermatologist.Your hair growth on the face will be reduced thereby reducing the number of times you have to thread/ wax or tweeze and the brown marks will reduce as they are a result of hair being plucked forcefully.
As a temporary method to reduce redness, you can apply calamine lotion after tweezing and for brown marks you can apply a cream containing kojic acid at night and a sunscreen in the morning.
