Hello,
Curious why acrylic is so much less expensive then gel prices in a salon usually?
I've seen acrylic fills from $12- $22 (+ up) and gel fills from $22- $50 (and up).
Salons around here usually use IBD (fairly inexpensive costs) & acrylic CND.....just curious why the difference can be so big?
From what I see, the cost of the product is higher.
When salons use dental acrylic, it's not hard to understand : )
I believe it takes them longer to do gels so they charge more so most people will go with the cheaper one, they make more money because their acrylic product is cheaper, and they can be done faster. no waiting in the lights for curing time.
