Lice Charmers Lice Clinic Hot Air Head Lice Treatment Info

Lice! The word itself sends shivers down the spines of parents everywhere. Just hearing about it can make you itchy.

Treatment involves multiple methods for removing head lice parasites from human hair. The most common and conventional therapies have been the pesticide-based solutions that target the tiny bugs and their eggs. However, lice have developed resistance to these treatments. Other treatments include nit and lice combs and home remedies of least effectiveness. A new treatment has come into the limelight that uses hot air to eradicate lice.

Effectiveness of hot air treatment for elimination of lice

Different techniques of using hot air treatment include: a bonnet-style hair dryer, a wall-mounted dryer, a handheld blow-dryer, a custom-built high-volume, hot-air blower.

The lice device was specifically created to dehydrate lice through heated air. It has a flexible hose through which warm air is blown. It also has a rake-like head piece at the end. It kills lice and nits not by burning, but by drying them out. However, this hot air lice clinic treatment has some shortcomings.

Downsides of the treatment

· Treatment with the device is only guaranteed for the most expensive lice treatment option.

· The hot air treatment method is sufficient to kill most live bugs. However, this method does not kill all nits, and they require lice removal with a comb. Any heat treatment method requires combing afterward.

· Some studies have proved that hot air treatments do not result in 100% mortality, and the only study done on the airalle device was conducted by the company that owns the device and sell them.

· The high heat of the machine can make the scalp feel inflamed and painful to the touch.

· If hot air treatments requires combing, why not just do combing?


In summary, this treatment is quite safe as no chemicals are used, and it is highly unlikely that lice will develop resistance. However, it has been found that the hot air treatment does not kill 100 percent of lice and eggs. It is possible that some lice or eggs may have escaped treatment or may not have been killed during the procedure. If so, there may be living lice, and viable eggs still present in the client’s hair after the treatment.

Lice charmers was fantastic. Both Alexis and Connor were so helpful, kind, and professional. The visit was quick, easy, inexpensive, and most importantly -...
Helpful, professional, and reliable. So grateful for this service!
Love the attention to detail and how well she worked. My kiddo enjoyed the attention she received. Just an awesome group. Can’t say enough good stuff.
If you ever have lice go to Lice Charmers! Emily was awesome. We had already done a treatment at home but weren't sure we got everything out of our daughter's head. She found 3 bugs that we either missed or that had hatched since the home... treatment. She was extremely thorough. Highly recommend!!read more
Emily was so helpful. Made me feel right at ease and made me smile throughout the process. This is a service you hope not to have to use often but if in fact I get another case of head lice, they’d be the first to call. Great communication.... Responded quickly to my request etc. Thank you again! Will be sure to tell others about more
Everything was super easy and everyone was so helpful. Would highly recommend this place!
Lice Charmers did a great job removing all lice and left us with an action plan. Best money spent to give our family a peace of mind. Quick, efficient and personable.
Emily was fantastic! She was very personable and made us feel comfortable. Service was thorough and really gave me peace of mind. Definitely recommend this place if you ever have to deal with those nasty little bugs!
Fluid experience from start to finish. Lots of tips and good experience while getting treatment. My 14 year old actually had an enjoyable experience and thought the person was “really sweet.” . Highly recommend Lice Charmers!
Emily was awesome and was able to rid my daughter of all the lice. She was extremely knowledgeable and helped me know what to do to clean out the house!Thanks Emily and Lice Charmers!
Great, friendly service and exactly what we needed to get peace of mind we were rid of all the lice. Tried home treatment first, but she still caught a few of the nits we missed and did a a thorough check of everyone in the family. Totally worth it!
Alexis was fantastic. She was super patient with our daughter, who had a pretty nasty infestation. She also was very good at explaining to and educating us about these nasty little insects.
We tried lice treatments from the store but couldn't seem to get rid of it completely and it just kept coming back. Finally I called them for lice removal and that seems to have done the job. Thanks Lice Charmers!
We were visiting friends while out of town, literally across the country when we found lice in my hair. I panicked of course and my sweet husband calmly googled and found Lice Charmers. We called and Conor was so sweet and empathetic and was able to... get me in that very day. We met Lex at the office and she was so unbelievably nice. She calmed our (my) anxiety, we had great conversation and the appointment took about an hour, which was much quicker than we expected considering I have long and thick hair. This was pain free, relaxing and honestly not as big of a deal and I thought it was going to be.This service was well worth the money we spent. Thank you!read more
This was our first head lice experience with our child. Lex, and Lice Charmers came the same day we called and quickly helped reassure us that once she left we would all be lice free. I particularly appreciated the 30 day guarantee. Lice Charmers... willingness to help guide us on best practices for what we needed to take care of in our home to ensure we wouldn't be reinfected was also such a help. Thanks so much Lice Charmers!read more
