The minute a head lice infestation hits the household parents are strategizing the fastest way to get rid of it. Traditionally that has meant running to the drugstore for some chemical that promises to take the bugs away. However, not only are these “remedies” ineffective, they are also dangerous.
These treatments rely on strong pesticides to knock out the bugs, but the problem is, after years of exposure to these sorts of chemicals, the head louse parasite has become increasingly resistant to the pesticides designed to get rid of it. As a result, parents are now pouring toxins on their kids’ heads and a week later still seeing bugs and nits.
The other option is the “home remedy,” and the Internet is filled with those who swear that a jar of mayonnaise can effectively treat the condition. Unfortunately most of these tips and tricks are simply old wives’ tales that are both messy and time-consuming. In the end, the lice still haven’t budged.
Here is the important thing to know about this parasite. While, not typically dangerous, these bugs are fiercely persistent and highly resilient. They don’t go away on their own, they don’t give up without a fight and they’re not easily killed off.
That’s why we don’t kill them! Instead, we remove them. Using special metal combs, designed specifically for this purpose, our trained removal experts work through your child’s hair, section by section, inspecting to make sure that each and every bug and nit have been removed. That means no chemicals, no endless combing, no mayonnaise. This is the safest lice treatment available, and best of all, you get to sit back and have a cup of coffee while we handle the job. In about an hour, you and your kids are back to regular life and the parasite problem is becoming a distant memory.
When treatment is finished, you have peace of mind as you walk out of our treatment center with your Lice Free Guarantee. Treatment is 100% effective with just one appointment. No repeat treatments or follow up appointments needed. Kids are able to return to school immediately.
