Head Lice Removal Salons

Many parents and childcare workers are not ready to deal with this infestation and are slowly turning away the old traditional lice  treatment methods (such as wet combing, topical pediculicides, and oral therapy) and embracing new professional lice treatment services.

Head lice’s increasing resistance to pyrethrin is one reason the number of lice removal salons increase yearly. With 6-12 million infected children every year, the entire market for lice salons and lice removal services is now around $4 billion.

Arrival of the Lice Salon

Recently many lice removal services such as head lice salons offering public treatment emerged all over the country.
This services are mostly situated in middle-upper-class neighborhoods and split into two main categories:
Head lice salons – establishments similar to ordinary salons, with the difference that they only eliminate head lice.
Head lice home services – less commonly found, these services make visits and help people remove head lice in the comfort of their own homes.

Costs

The most significant advantage of these professional services is that it’s almost sure you’ll be lice-free by the end of the treatment process. The only downside is the price you pay for it. Rates aren’t fixed and vary depending on the specific part of the country you live in. However, the average price for these services is about $100 per hour. Treatment services can cost a few hundred dollars per child and thousands of dollars for a full infested family. Some services assure you to eliminate all the bugs in one single visit. However, the majority of them recommend additional visits to complete the treatment.

Treatment Method

The specific treatment process of each lice salon varies, but they all do roughly the same thing. These treatment services typically defeat an infestation in one session by using a combination of products and techniques, such as lice-killing shampoo, creams, heated air, specialized fine-toothed combing, and nitpicking.

Once in a Licetime (California), The Nit-Picker (New England), Lice Happens (Washington), Head Hunters (Atlanta), No Lice Left Behind (Los Angeles) are just some of the many lice salons currently in operation.

I recommend this place.Priscila RosalesPriscila Rosales ★★★★★ Great service! She was super nice and understanding.Shondra CulpepperShondra Culpepper ★★★★★ LIFESAVER!!!! I had been through lice before with my older kids when they were younger as there was an outbreak at their daycare. Well back then, about 14 years ago there were no lice clinics to take your kids to. Doing the treatment myself was a nightmare and not 100% effective.Fast forward to today, when my nine-year-old had been exposed to lice from a friend. I called the clinic to make an appointment for us to all get checked. My daughter had lice and immediately got treated by Lex. Lex was knowledgeable, kind and efficient! It made what could have been a terrible experience actually pleasant. To be able to go home 100% lice free is amazing and worth every penny. I never write reviews but I highly recommend Lice Charmers!!Esmeralda MartinezEsmeralda Martinez ★★★★★ This was the first time that I experienced with lice with my youngest daughter a feeling with stress but i found this professional head lice removal and the company is called Lice Charmers!
