The first 5 or 6 treatments/clearances can be the worst, then things can get better for you?
If a client keeps telling me they are upset about their skin reaction, I would try different strategies. If they are still unhappy, yes, they may have to suck it up or stop doing electrolysis. I can only do my best because I do care about the client's concern.
If they are freaking out about a few pustules or few pin point scabs after I try different ideas to minimize those skin side effects, I tell them that we should stop treatments. You see, I need to disable hair follicles and sometimes there is a trade off between having a few temporary skin side effects and thoroughly treating the hair follicle so it is permanently disabled.

Do not give up, the beginning is always the hardest.
