‘Threadolysis’ the new buzzword in Indian beauty industry

If eyes are the window of the soul, then eyebrows are the frame to it! Getting the eyebrows shaped is vital to one’s looks, besides it can give hint on the personality and emotion of an individual. Now wonder we get our eye brows shaped ‘rightly’ more often.

However, more and more people are opting for ‘Threadolysis’ for shaping their eyebrows than the old-fashioned method of ‘unhygienic threading’. The reason, the fear of susceptibility to infections with people getting saturated with the daily deluge of the deadly Covid-19 or any other communicable disease.

Then why not play it safe? While traditionally an beautician holds the thread (used for shaping eye brows) between her teeth, ‘Threadolysis’ is all about a specially equipped device being worn around the neck like a chain. The band-like device is then used for precision works like shaping eyebrows.

Until the Covid-19 broke out, not many had suspected the old-fashioned threading technique as a “contagious”, “unhygienic”, “hazardous” and back breaking practice. But things have changed a lot in the past several months as more and more people, especially in countries like India, turned health conscious and adhere to best possible safety measures to keep the virus infection at bay.

The amazing “Threadolysis” technique, though, was being practiced in the West for little over two decades. The inventor “Manju Oberoi” designed the technique, not with any global pandemic in mind but for two reasons – her own personal safety and standardization of services in her salons, as well, in the industry where she was actively working, which is in USA. Also, she took the initiative to replace the traditional ways of hair removal with ‘Threadolysis’ to meet the strict standardization, also by setting new benchmarks and guidelines there.

Threadolysis unique technique is now all the more relevant to suit the changed ways of living in the wake of the alien disease. It involves no unhygienic activities like that involved in traditional threading where there is a risk of minute saliva juice droplets falling on small wounds (when hair is removed) or open skin pores of clients.

The next time you head to salons or call an operator at your home make sure you ask for ‘Threadolysis’ technique being used to get your eyebrows in perfect shape.
