Avoid Over the Counter Products That Are No Longer Effective

As time has moved forward, an assortment of lice treatments have emerged for those who are seeking a solution. This includes products that can be found on store shelves for home use, but unfortunately, many of these options are no longer effective in eradicating the current 98% of head lice that have become resistant. Additionally, even the medical prescriptions that were once relied upon have lost their usefulness. Utilizing traditional remedies provides a dismal 20% efficacy rate, which frequently results in families enduring frustrating situations while attempting to rid themselves of lice infestations. Notably, these conventional treatment items are often comprised of potent chemicals that release unpleasant odors, presenting potential risks that make them ill-suited for children below the age of two years old. To prevent disappointment, it’s best to steer clear of over-the-counter remedies such as Rid, Nix, Spinosad, Natroba, Ivermectin, Sklice, and generic lice treatments. They will only provide limited effectiveness and may even contain hazardous elements.

Express Treatment

Heat Treatment & Oil Treatment with No Comb-Out

This specialized option caters exclusively to individuals who are unable to have their hair combed out. The process consists of a convenient single appointment, comprising two essential steps: a 45–60-minute Heat Treatment and an Oil Treatment application. Designed particularly for those with dreadlocks or hair that cannot be combed due to reasons such as extensive matted knots, hair tenderness, fragility, or hair loss (e.g., from chemotherapy), this solution offers a comprehensive approach. Our Heat Treatment effectively eradicates all eggs/nits, preventing them from hatching, but it does not remove the deceased debris, nor does it kill live lice. To ensure complete extermination, the Oil Treatment is applied, leaving no chance for any remaining lice to lay further eggs. Rest assured that this tailored treatment option is carefully crafted to suit your specific needs, ensuring a successful lice elimination process even for those with unique hair conditions.

Say goodbye to lice worries without the need for hair combing, thanks to our specialized heated air treatment and Oil Treatment application. Book an appointment today

Surcharges for Severe Infestation

We offer additional services to address specific situations: Severe Infestation, Oil Treatment, Extra Long Hair, and Extra Combing.

Severe Infestation

In the case of a severe infestation, a $50 fee is applied to help cover the cost of extra resources and clean-up, as well as to compensate our clinician who may be at risk of contracting lice while providing treatment. Severe infestations may necessitate additional combing, which is charged separately.

Oil Treatment

If the scalp has multiple sores or any infected sores, we perform an Oil Treatment. This process involves eradicating the hatched lice and allowing the sores to heal before proceeding with the service, usually requiring just a few days.

Extra Long Hair

Hair under three feet in length falls under our standard pricing. For each foot over three feet, additional charges apply:

  • Head checks incur an extra $25 per foot of hair.
  • Treatments involve an additional $100 per foot of hair.

We do not charge extra for curly, textured, or thick hair. However, it is helpful to inform us in advance to ensure that we assign a clinician experienced in handling technically challenging hair.

Extra Combing

If the scheduled 90-minute appointment requires extended combing, we will try our best to accommodate it. However, due to other appointments, there may be instances where we need to reschedule. For any combing beyond the initial 90 minutes, a fee of $50 per 30 minutes will be applied.

Rest assured that we provide these additional services to address specific needs and ensure you receive the most effective and personalized treatment for a successful lice removal experience.
