So the nail growing project continues. All the UV-gel is off my nails now and they are thin as paper. I’ve been hearing great things about IBX treatment when it comes to damaged nails so I decided to give it a try. I had my first appointment the other day and this post is about my first impressions with IBX.
One of the most important things for me was that IBX doesn’t leave any layers of product on your nails. It goes into the nail and your nails feel and look natural after the treatment. The treatment process itself was very pleasant. There was no buffing down my already thin nails. Just a light touch to get rid of oils that might be on the nail plate. The product itself didn’t feel like anything. There was no burning sensation or anything at all as it absorbed into my nails. The process was also quick and I was out of the salon in 35 mins since I didn’t need my cuticles cleaned or my nails shaped before the treatment.
There isn’t a dramatic change to be seen on the before and after photos here BUT I felt a huge change just after this first treatment. My nails do look smoother and healthier now too. They are still thin, of course but they feel much better. My nails were super sensitive before the treatment. I mean even massaging nail oil on my nails was actually painful. I noticed a huge change on the sensitivity of my nails right after the treatment and the morning after my nails felt almost normal. I can now apply nail oil without any discomfort.
So my opinion after the first treatment? I’m quite impressed with the results just after one time. I have another appointment booked in two weeks and I can’t wait to see if there’s a change for better after that one too. I’m very hopeful that IBX will make this long and boring nail growing project a little more tolerable.
Here are some before and after photos of my left hand. I cleaned the nails with cleaner (alcohol) before taking each photo to eliminate nail oil/hand lotion making the results look different than they actually are. So these are completely clean nails before and after the IBX treatment.
And here’s the comparison next to each other
