In brief: Tendskin
Tendskin or similar products can reduce shaving bumps of used after shaving.
Another option os not to shave to close with a recessed razor. The only definitive way would be laser hair removal.Expect about 6 sessions. And the residual colr change can be treated with topicalretinoids to the excessive colr from the inflammation.

In brief: Laser hair removal
Shaving bumps are usually caused when curly hair starts to grow and ends up piercing the skin, causing irritation.
The best way to get rid of the problem completely is to destroy the hair follicle with laser hair removal.

In brief: Sharp razor, grease
"greasy" shaving cream such as shea butter will allow the razor to glide more smoothly over the skin.
This decreases the irritation by the razor and sometimes prevents those red bumps. A sharp razor does this so you might have to change blades during shaving.
