Brazilian wax has revealed unattractive skin issues. Is there anything that can be done to solve it?

I had my first-ever Brazilian wax a couple weeks ago. I am extremely pleased with the results, and intend to stay bare for the foreseeable future. The only problem is that with the removal of the hair, I discovered that the skin of my mons pubis resembles, well, turkey skin. Lots of distinct nodules where the hairs grow out. These are not ingrown hairs, as they are not red or inflamed in appearance, and uniformly distributed. A darker version of uncooked turkey skin really is the closest thing I can think of in terms of describing what I'm seeing. Which is gross. I suspect this might be genetic and therefore unsolvable, but is there anything that can be done to reduce these bumps, or make them go away entirely?
