It can take a long time to get rid of head lice outbreaks. People have reported dealing with outbreaks for months, and even years. Head lice can turn in to a vicious cycle, if not treated properly. What most parents don’t know, is that super lice have now grown immune to over-the-counter (OTC) treatments, and let’s face it—those combs most drugstore treatments come with, just don’t do the job!
Lice has been around for hundreds of years, and with the same treatment options for at least the last two decades. During those two decades or so, the lice have become immune to the chemical insecticides, called pyrethroids, which are found in most OTC treatments.
Often, OTC treatments only kill live lice (if you’re lucky) and do nothing to eliminate the eggs/nits. The nits must still be manually combed out or the cycle will start all over again. This is difficult because the nits and lice are very hard to see.
That’s why Lice Clinics of Canada uses the AirAllé device. This Health-Canada-approved device kills head lice and lice eggs using heated air. A clinical study on the patented AirAllé device proved that it kills 99.2 per cent of eggs, so they are not viable and cannot hatch after treatment.
It’s also important to make a list of everyone you have been in contact with, so that you can make them aware of the infestation. The last thing you want to do is spend time and money clearing lice, only to get it again from the same source. If you make them aware, they can also treat the infestation and stop the cycle from starting over.
Lice Clinics of Canada offers many products to help treat and prevent lice. We offer preventive shampoo, conditioner and daily spray, as well as comb-out mousse to make the comb-out as smooth as possible. We also offer at-home treatment kits, if you feel more comfortable treating in the comfort of your own home. Every product we offer is free of pesticides.
Lice Clinics of Canada is the only head lice removal service in Ontario currently using the AirAllé device, which guarantees clients leave the clinic lice-free. There are more than 250 clinics worldwide.
