Head back to school lice free
Summer is coming to end (tear) and families are gearing up for back to school.
Back to school is a busy time for most, as the days are spent shopping for school supplies, new clothes, and getting back into a routine.
If you have a child(ren) headed back to school, you will want to add ‘check my child’s head for lice’ to your back to school to-do list.
Why does my child need to be checked?
Having your child’s head checked by a trained professional for head lice before they go back to school will save you time and money.
Lice Clinics of Canada recommends getting your child’s head checked for lice by a trained professional before school starts because children are the most susceptible to getting lice in the first place. Back to school means your child(ren) will be around a lot more children and more often than during the summer.
It is these close encounters that make spreading lice a lot easier, as most head lice cases are spread by head-to-head contact.
What happens if my child has lice?
If your child does have lice, you will have enough time to effectively get rid of the lice before school starts. We have many treatment options available.
Our most popular—and effective—treatment is our signature package. This process consists of three steps, and uses our Health Canada-cleared medical device, the AirAlle.
The AirAlle is 99%+ effective in killing both lice and their eggs, and we are the only head lice treatment service that offers this treatment.
Can’t I just treat at home?
We would hate for you to waste your time and money on treatments that don’t work. Traditional drug store products no longer work because super lice have adapted and are pesticide resistant. We have performed more than 400,000 successful treatments. Our treatment works.
In addition, any over-the-counter treatment may only kill live lice. It will do nothing for the eggs, so if you don’t comb out every single one, the infestation may never go away.
The AirAlle device kills both lice and their eggs, and then we remove the dead stuff for you.
