FAQ

HOW DOES BIO SCULPTURE GEL WORK?

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.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BIO SCULPTURE AND OTHER GEL SYSTEMS, ACRYLICS OR HYBRID POLISHES?

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. Another 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 are not nearly as long-lasting as Bio Sculpture Gel. At Bio Sculpture we are very proud of our unique and gentle 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 hybrid nail polishes are not able to offer as yet.

HOW CAN I BECOME A BIO SCULPTURE CERTIFIED NAIL TECHNICIAN?

Bio Sculpture offers a variety of training courses aimed at preparing you for a successful career as a Nail Technician.  Courses are available to those new to the Beauty Industry interested in a career as a Nail Technician as well as certified Nail Technicians and Estheticians interested in learning the Bio Sculpture Gel Nail System. Bio Sculpture Courses are designed to provide the student with a solid foundation in theoretical and product knowledge combined with hands-on experience with the products under the guidance of a Certified Bio Sculpture Educator. With a preference for a small-group class format, all students will have ample opportunity to get individual attention from the Educator. In addition to beginner level courses, Bio Sculpture also offers advanced courses, workshops and refreshers to provide continuing education to those Nail Technicians interested in further enhancing their skill set.

WHAT SHOULD YOU LOOK FOR WHEN CHOOSING A SALON FOR BIO SCULPTURE?

Bio Sculpture Nail Technicians are encouraged to display their Bio Sculpture Certificates. 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.

HOW SAFE IS BIO SCULPTURE GEL?

Bio Sculpture cares about the health and wellbeing of both Nail Technicians and Clients. Bio Sculpture is the only nail care company worldwide to receive a Five Star Safety Rating for tolerability and efficacy.

WILL BIO SCULPTURE DAMAGE OR DEHYDRATE THE NATURAL NAIL?

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

WHERE CAN I PURCHASE BIO SCULPTURE PRODUCTS?

Bio Sculpture Products are available for purchase by Certified Nail Technicians and Estheticians from Bio Sculpture Sales Representatives. To find the Sales Representative for your area contact Bio Sculpture Customer Service at 1-877-424-6435 x 80.

WHAT’S INVOLVED IN REMOVING BIO SCULPTURE GEL?

Bio Sculpture Gel is removed in minutes with a specially formulated Gel Remover solution designed to remove the Gel, without damaging or dehydrating the natural nail underneath. A small cotton pad soaked in Gel Remover and placed directly over the gel, the fingertip is then wrapped in foil. After approximately 5-10 minutes the gel will peel off the nail, leaving a beautiful healthy nail underneath. Bio Sculpture Nail Polish is removed with Bio Sculpture Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover. Bio Sculpture Nail Polish can be applied over the Gel for an instant colour change, it can then be removed easily without damaging your Bio Sculpture Gel manicure underneath.

CAN BIO SCULPTURE PRODUCTS BE PURCHASED FOR PERSONAL (HOME) USE?

Bio Sculpture Gel products can only be purchased and applied by Certified Nail Technicians and Estheticians. Bio Sculpture Natural Nail Treatments, Nail Polish and Spa Manicure and Pedicure products are available for personal (home) use.

HOW SHOULD I TAKE CARE OF MY BIO SCULPTURE NAILS?

The durability and high-gloss finish of Bio Sculpture Gel Treatments can be prolonged by using only Bio Sculpture products. A full range of home care products are available, a few musts are Bio Sculpture Cuticle Oil, Bio Sculpture Hand Cream, Bio Sculpture Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover and Bio Sculpture Top Coat.

FILLS VS. REMOVAL?

There is no hard and fast rule with regards to removing gel at every visit or doing fills. Both ways are acceptable and used widely. Complete removal and reapplication is recommended for colour treatments since most clients change colours at every visit. Removal affords the Nail Technician (and Client) to opportunity to evaluate the natural nail and adjust treatment products based on changes in client’s nail condition due to internal and/or environmental factors. 

IS BIO SCULPTURE GEL TESTED ON ANIMALS?

Bio Sculpture Gel is not tested on animals.

IS THE UV CURING UNIT SAFE TO USE?

We have had our lamps tested by The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency. The Safety Agency have confirmed that the UV emissions of the Bio Sculpture Unit are predominately in the UVA region and our lamps are safe to use for the application of our gel as long as you do not exceed a maximum of 75 minutes per session. However, curing of the gel applied to finger and toenails will require much less than the maximum exposure time and should not constitute a risk.

HOW LONG DOES A BIO SCULPTURE MANICURE OR PEDICURE LAST?

Bio Sculpture will last at least three weeks on your nails and about six to eight weeks on toe nails, as they grow a lot slower than finger nails. 

IS IT EASY TO TEMPORARILY CHANGE MY NAIL COLOUR?

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.
