What is the machine used?

---needle #3 iso--
Probe 3 is too thin for beard for me.The probe should match the hair thickness or to be larger to decrease the discomfort.

---Iso--- could means iso-gard or iso-blend not clear.Maybe this is Pro-Tec probes.

---F.39--- could mean chin program(3 on my machine SX-500) intensity level (9).

---20s--- irelevant for thermo.

---90%--- intensity of the puls.

My machine settings for Program 39:
-0.091s - time
-82% - intensity

If there is smooth hair release your settings are OK.

Thanks for the reply, I believe the machine used was an Apilus. It was 2 years ago so I don't really remember everything. I was thinking the ''iso'' needle might be insulated since ''isolé'' is the French word for it, but not too sure. I was wondering what the ''20s'' was, maybe 0.020sec... Anyway, I basically just wanted to know if these settings were extreme or not, but if they're relatively normal I'm won't worry about them!

And yes Seana we will get together as soon as I'm ready!
