Famous Names IBX Repair (7.4ml)

For Professional Use Only. 

An intense treatment to repair damaged, weak and thin nails. This surface based treatment is used in conjunction with IBX Strengthen and improves and protects the integrity of the nail plate under a gel polish enhancement. IBX Repair can also be applied to visibly damaged and weak areas of the nail that prevent nails from growing by sealing the area together to promote growth. 

Note: IBX Repair cannot be used alone, apply IBX Repair first followed by IBX Strengthen.

Features: 

  • Under Gel Polish & Dip Systems:
    • Reduces surface-based “white spots” on the nail plate. The “white spots” are caused by micro pits that happen after frequent removal
    • Hardens the surface layer to help prevent future nail damage during the next removal process
  • For natural nail growth:
    • Repair of severe or chronic nail damage that would typically prevent nail growth
    • Formulated to repair severe ridges and delamination on the nail
  • For new growth area when balancing gel or acrylic enhancements:
    • Protects and strengthens the natural nail as the enhancements grow out
    • Provides a great foundation for optimum adhesion of the enhancement on top

Applying the IBX SYSTEM requires a heat source. We recommend one of these three options:

  • A basic table lamp with a 75-100 watt bulb, held 6-8 inches away
  • A nail polish dryer, set to warm
  • A hair dryer on low heat setting

 

After you penetrate the product into the upper layers of the nail plate with gentle heat, the IBX SYSTEM will require curing with either an LED or UV style lamp. Cure time should be based on the lamp manufacturer’s suggested cure time for their gel polish colour coat.

Always start with a clean bare nail that has been filed and shaped. For Damaged delaminated nails or nails with visible white spots, buffing the surface smooth is not necessary and can cause thinning of the natural nail.

 

REPAIR APPLICATION

Use REPAIR on damaged nails, and only when needed. Do not buff peeling nails prior. Severe ridges and delamination use REPAIR twice.

REPAIR cannot be used alone, must be used with strengthen.
