Head lice may be difficult to detect and unless you have had experience in finding and/or treating
them in the past, are sometimes hard to identify. We are happy to perform a thorough head lice check in one of our facilities, in order to give you a definitive answer as to whether or not you or your child(ren) have a case of head lice. Increasingly, more and more people are coming to The Lice People for a simple head check and the security of knowing, for sure, if head lice are present. Approximately sixty percent (60%) of those we do head check in our facilities do not have head lice. If a case of head lice is present, we will discuss lice treatment program options with you. When we find head lice on one family member, we strongly suggest that all family members be checked, as soon as possible, as lice are frequently found spread among entire families.
Please contact us for head lice treatment options in Toronto and for an appointment today.
***Head check fee is waived should lice be detected and our lice treatment services are provided***
The core of our treatment plan, our complete head lice and nit removal is a multi-step process that begins with our safe, nontoxic products, is followed by a thorough combing with a premier head lice comb and concluded by a strand-by-strand inspection of every piece of hair to facilitate the manual removal of any remaining bugs or nits. Only by removing any nits that remain on the hair shaft, a labor-intensive process that is best performed by a trained technician who knows what to look for, can head lice be effectively eliminated in one treatment visit. During the treatment visit in our Toronto lice removal salon, all evidence of head lice is completely removed.
An average female treatment is 1 1/2 to 2 hours and an average male treatment is 1 to 1 1/2 hours. Every treatment also includes a quality control inspection by a second technician during that first visit. We perform the head lice removal at our specially-outfitted facility where you will find enhanced lighting, proper treatment seating and equipment, targeted product availability and a full team of experienced head lice elimination technicians. Alternately, we can and will travel to you for complete head lice removal in one visit. In either case, it is our goal to remove all the lice and nits effectively and as quickly as possible, keeping your comfort in mind at all times.
Post treatment, you will be provided with a treatment clearance letter and even those children who attend a school with a no nit policy may return without delay.
The Lice People’s approach to head lice removal is truly comprehensive. We have performed treatments on babies who were not yet able to sit on their own, on grandmothers and grandfathers and every age in between. We are expert at making every member of the family comfortable, and this includes children who have difficulty sitting for long durations, children who may not like to have their hair combed or brushed and children and adults with other special needs.
Every treatment program includes a follow up visit to our Toronto Lice Removal Salon. During this second visit, for a follow-up head check (2-7 days post treatment), we perform a thorough inspection to ensure there has been no further exposure to head lice and that absolutely no evidence exists. There is no charge for this visit, it takes approximately fifteen to 30 minutes and is performed only in The Lice People’s facility.
It is truly our goal to help to educate you about head lice and to assist you in attempting to prevent future infestations. When we treat for head lice, we will provide you simple written guidelines on what to do in your home and car as well as easy techniques for head lice prevention. During the treatment and follow-up visits, we will also answer any questions you may have. If you have decided you would like to treat yourself or your children on your own, please let us give you information on methods and products that will render your efforts effective.
