Hi! The setting used is a little low, considering your skin type. If you are truly a Fitzpatrick II, I would start with at least a 50/20 initial setting, unless the hair is finer in texture, in which case I would start you at a 55/15 setting and see what kind of results. How long have these practitioners had their machine, and which model is it? The Coolglide is very protective of the skin, so see what happens with this treatment. I do not like to second-guess other practitioners, however. There may be good reason for the settings being used, so talk it over with your tech, and see what they say. Good luck with your treatments, and keep us posted.
