A Completely Safe and Effective
Head Lice Treatment is Here!
Pediatric Hair Solutions uses a method scientifically proven to eradicate lice and their eggs in one 30 minute (approximate) treatment.
98% of lice have developed resistance to over-the-counter and prescription treatments, resulting in an effectiveness rate as low as 20%.
Unlike these products, our medical device uses controlled, heated air, which is completely safe and proven to be 99.2% effective.
How It Works
Step 1 – Pre-Treatment
Pre-treatment with our non-toxic, all natural solution. Soaking entire head with the pre-treatment solution kills all live bug activity and halts egg production.
Step 2 – Medical Device Treatment
The 30-minute in clinic treatment works heated air, in a timed and specific pattern, through the hair for 30 minutes to dehydrate lice and their eggs/nits. It has been proven to be safe, fast and effective at killing lice and eggs.
A clinical study of our treatment process proves it to be 100% effective.
We recommend our 3-Step Head Lice Treatment, which includes pre-treatment, medical device treatment, and at-home post-treatment. This combination of treatments has a 100% success rate! For more details please visit our Head Lice Treatment Services page.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I have to treat everyone if only one person is found to have head lice?
Is your treatment safe?
What should we expect at your treatment centers?
Our friendly staff are skilled at putting children and their parents at ease during the treatment. The AirAllé™ treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, and is followed by a complimentary comb out which takes between 10-30 minutes.
How much does lice removal cost?
Along with our AirAllé™ treatment, we also have a traditional nit education kit you can perform at home.
Is head lice treatment covered by Medicaid or insurance?
Why can’t we just use the over-the-counter or “home remedy” options to get rid of head lice?
While home nit-picking is always an option, we don’t recommend some of the other treatments you may find on the internet. Pouring Listerine, alcohol, vinegar, kerosene, or similar liquids on your child’s head is not only ineffective – it is dangerous! Many times even the less extreme home treatments will irritate your scalp or damage your hair.
If you opt to try treating at home, you need to be prepared to set aside a few hours each day (per child) for the next two to three weeks in order to eradicate the problem…keeping in mind that even one missed egg will start the infestation over again. PHS does offer a traditional nit education kit that will give you the tools and information you need to complete this process.
How do I treat my home for lice? Can lice live on hard surfaces?
The first thing to remember is head lice can not live off the human host for more than 48 hours. Also, lice do not have “feet” and can not travel well an smooth hard surfaces. Lice can not jump or fly. Nits/eggs need to be in a warm, dark, moist place to incubate. Please do not use a pesticide spray on furniture. Remember, lice are resistant and the use of pesticides can have harmful side effects.
- Clean all bed and bath linens that have come in contact with affected individuals. Place clothing, linens, etc in the dryer on high heat for 30-40 minutes. Do the same with clothing and outerwear worn within 48 hours.
- Vacuum carseats, carpets, floors, mattresses, and furniture where there has been contact within last 48 hours.
- All hair brushes and accessories need to be placed in baggies and put in the freezer for 48 hours and then washed thoroughly in hot soapy water. Label these items in the future so they are not shared.
Sports and bike helmets go into freezer for 48 hours.
- There are many items that cannot be placed in the dryer, but must also be treated. Isolation is the best method for dealing with these items, including stuffed animals, pillows, or headphones. You should expect these items to be out of commission for at least 48 hours.
This process only needs to be done one time on day of treatment with the AirAllé™ (formerly known as LouseBuster) device.
