Treatment

The Nit-Pickers head lice treatment is a revolutionary new way to kill head lice and their eggs without using pesticides or other chemicals. The treatment, which uses only controlled heated air, kills all stages of head lice safely, very effectively and fast! The treatment is highly effective against all head lice infestations, including infestations with pesticide-resistant lice and for individuals who have asthma, allergies, or other conditions that preclude traditional chemical treatments. The treatment is performed by a trained, certified Operator. An average of 30 minutes is required to make sure the whole scalp is treated. A comb-out with a fine-tooth louse comb is done to remove most of the dead lice and eggs, as well as any unlikely, but possible live lice that managed to survive. Depending on the thickness of the hair and the extent of the infestation, this comb-out can take between 15 and 45 minutes and is included as part of the treatment service provided by the team.

Post treatment:

Control your environment

Head lice cannot jump, fly, or swim, and they are usually spread by direct head-to-head, or hand-to-head contact with another person who has lice.

To reduce the chances of getting re-infested from another person, or from items that may have lice on them, it is important to:

Check all family members and close friends for signs of head lice. Seek a lice treatment as soon as possible for all suspected cases. Avoid head-to-head and hand to-head contact with anyone who has.

Periodic combing with a louse comb after the treatment is done to guard against re-infestation is recommended.
Check the scalp and hair of all family members for 10 days after treatment.
Examine head in a well-lit area (daylight is best).
Part the hair and look carefully at the scalp, behind the ears and the nape of neck – these are “hot spots”.
