Pediatric Hair Solution’s Signature Head Lice Treatment Plan Using the FloSonix Device Succeeds Where Other Treatments Fail.
We have written a great deal about the ineffectiveness of treating lice with over-the-counter, prescription treatments and at-home remedies. But it’s important to understand WHY these treatments often fail to completely eradicate lice. Sure, many of the top brands succeed in killing some of the live lice when used correctly. However, these treatments alone do not stop the lice life-cycle. Many of our patients come to us after trying multiple brands of head lice treatments that they believed would work – only to have the pesky lice return with a vengeance after a few days or weeks.
So why is head lice so hard to treat?
The answer is nits (a.k.a. head lice eggs) and they are not easy to remove. Most over-the-counter treatments only suppress adult and adolescent lice, but they do not kill the nits because they do not have an ovicidal effect. Nits are stubborn, sneaky little things that are essentially glued to the hair shaft and hard to see if you don’t know what to look for. Treating head lice is hard because you not only have to kill ALL live bugs, you must destroy every nit in your hair and scalp, or they will eventually hatch – leaving you with more bugs and nits to contend with in a never ending cycle.
The first step in safely ending the cycle once and for all is to kill ALL live bugs with a non-toxic treatment solution through suffocation. The next, and perhaps most critical step, is to decimate all nits on your head. This is where many of the common over-the-counter treatments and home remedies fail. We do this step with a heated air medical device called the FloSonix, which we developed using our medical expertise with a team of engineers. Using a controlled flow of heated air, the FloSonix device dehydrates all nits in one 30 minute treatment, leaving them incapable of continuing the life cycle.
Dehydration is key to non-toxic lice treatment because lice and nits are composed of high levels of water and are accustomed to protected, humid environments. The FloSonix uses a combination of quick, dry heat and air that dehydrates the lice, causing them to die.
What makes this method especially effective as a head lice treatment is how it affects the louse at every life stage. Our medical protocol of applying treatment solution first to kill live bugs, followed by a heated air device treatment to decimate all lice eggs was shown in a clinical study of 281 patients to be > 99% effective. The protocol also includes the application of a treatment solution following the heat treatment, in order to prevent reinfestation as the patient returns to the settings and environment from which the case of lice could have originated.
There is simply no point in putting your loved ones through a chemical lice treatment when the results are sub-par and can cause harmful side effects, we understand that filtering through all the static to find a non-toxic head lice treatment can be a challenge.
