FAQ

Bio Sculpture is applied directly over the natural nail, much like a polish and mimics the natural movements and flexibility of your nails, keeping nails perfectly protected with a non-chip colour finish. There is no drying time with Bio Sculpture as it is cured under a Safety Tested UV lamp. There is minimal buffing to prepare the natural nail and there are no primers, dehydrators or pH balancers needed.

Always choose a Bio Sculpture Therapist that holds a Bio Sculpture Certificate of Merit, Advanced Certificate or A-Grade Certificate. This is the only way Bio Sculpture can guarantee and ensure you will receive an authentic Bio Sculpture treatment. All technicians that have a Certificate of Merit have been assessed by a trained Bio Sculpture Educator to ensure the quality of their workmanship. Make sure the salon is using Bio Sculpture Gel, as often clients have been mislead and had acrylic gel applied which cannot be soaked off.

If possible have a Bio Sculpture overlay applied approximately 5 weeks prior to the occasion. The Gel will actually protect the free edge of your natural nail and prevent it wearing away; you will be amazed how quickly your nails appear to be growing. In fact this is just that they are not breaking and wearing away. You will slowly, naturally become accustomed to the new length as your nails grow. If you are a chronic biter or picker, the temptation to pick will be far less if all 10 nails are instantly lengthened. The first infill should be done within the first two weeks, if the desired length has not been achieved within this time, sculptures can then be added.

If the pool is highly chlorinated the Gel may become soft or discoloured as chlorine is a very strong chemical. We suggest you apply an additional coat of Bio Sculpture Top Coat, which will seal and protect your gel. After swimming remember to wash your hands with warm soapy water to remove the chlorine residue.

The nail polish remover you are using contains chemicals that are damaging to Bio Sculpture Gel. Even if your nail polish remover is Non-Acetone, it still has many different chemicals to the Bio Sculpture Nail Polish Remover, which has been specifically formulated not to damage the Gel or the natural nail. We recommend you use all Bio Sculpture products with your gel as these are compatible and will cause no damage to your gel.

With a fresh overlay the Gel can be quite flexible, and Top Coat is not as flexible as the Gel. Occasionally newspaper print or grime can get into these tiny crack and very small crazy cracks appear. Remove your Top Coat with Bio Sculpture Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover, wash your hands and then apply a fresh coat of Bio Sculpture Top Coat, to bring back the high shine and remove the cracks.

Bio Sculpture Gel works well on Hairdresser’s nails. The Gel is flexible and very durable in water, which is perfect for Hairdressers. Colour Gel is best as the staining from the hair dye will not show.

Should you wish to change the colour of your nails, you can choose from one of the 140 different colour nail polishes available and apply it over the top of the permanent colour gel. The polishes can easily be removed with Bio Sculpture Non-acetone Nail Polish Remover taking you back to your original permanent gel colour. It is highly recommended that you only use Bio Sculpture Nail Polishes and Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover as they are specially formulated for our gels and will not cause any softening or lifting which other products can cause.

There is no abrasive preparation, no priming or dehydration and very minimal buffing so the natural nail should not be dehydrated or damaged.

When applying Bio Sculpture Gel no primers, bonders or dehydrators are used. Bio Sculpture Gel contains no Formaldehyde, Toluene, Acetone and Phthalates and will give you a natural looking finish without damaging the natural nail underneath.

Bio Sculpture Gel is not tested on animals.

Our UV lamps operate at the lowest wattage available (2 x 9watt globes) and have been independently tested. With recent media scares about UVA lamps causing cancer, we have are proud to advise that our lamps have been independently tested by The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency and by the Australian Radiation Laboratory and found to be safe if used according to Bio Sculpture guidelines. Dr John Javorniczky (ARPANSA) has confirmed that the UV emissions of the Bio Sculpture Unit are predominately in the UVA region and that our lamps are safe to use for the application of our gel as long as you do not exceed a maximum of 75 minutes of continual exposure per session. Furthermore, the curing of the gel applied to finger and toe nails will require much less than the maximum exposure time and should not constitute a risk.

Bio Sculpture is a very different product to other gels and hybrid gel polishes, the main difference being that Bio Sculpture will not cause any damage to the natural nails. Most gel systems on the market are acrylic based and cannot be removed without damaging the natural nail. The other difference of our system compared to others on the market is that there is no need for primers or dehydrators in order for the gel to adhere to the natural nail. The new hybrid gel polish formulas are somewhere between nail polish and Bio Sculpture Gel. They last a lot longer than regular nail polish, but not nearly as long-lasting as Bio Sculpture. At Bio Sculpture we are very proud of our unique, acrylic free formulation that see clients maintaining healthy nails whilst still being able to wear a nail enhancement or non chip manicure. We can provide gel sculptures, for those looking to lengthen the nails, problem nails and repair broken nails, offer unique nail art and add strength to nails, which the hybrids nail polishes are not able to offer as yet

Bio Sculpture will last three weeks on your nails and about six to eight weeks on toe nails, as they grow a lot slower than finger nails. Some clients may last longer as they look after and maintain their nails well and others client who are hard on their nails may only last two weeks.

There is no hard and fast rule with regards to soaking off every time against doing infills. Some nail technicians prefer not to do infills and rather soak off and put a fresh set of gels on, while others prefer to do a few infills before soaking off. Both ways are acceptable and used widely. We are recommending soaking off each time as it allows the technician to assess and treat the natural nail underneath.
