I also had a BIG problem with the shaving part (and occasionally still do) but once I got past it, everything worked out. If it's any comfort, you will be noticing that you will need to do it less and less as your get your treatments done. Also, in between sessions, as the hairs grow back, you might consider using a fine-tipped pair of scissors rather than a razor to reduce the amount of visible hair. This way you get less of a "stubble" look since you can more easily target a certain hair or two at a time. Good luck!
