We offer treatment options for all budgets and ages. We use the revolutionary AirAllé device which uses controlled, heated air through its applicator tip along the scalp and hair shafts in order to dehydrate both the adult lice and their eggs. When the AirAllé is not an option or if budget is an issue, we offer a traditional comb out, an AirAllé express treatment, and a Do-It-Yourself urgent care kit.

Appointment Booking:  We are an urgent care clinic.  All appointments are booked within 24 hours or less of your desired appointment time.  If you would like to book an appointment more than 24 hours in advance, we required a $25 per person advanced retainer deposit that will be refunded back to you after your head screen or treatment.

HEAD SCREENING-NO LICE, NO TREATMENT

$25 per person. This charge is waived if a treatment is provided. We provide one complimentary peace of mind head screen with 30 days of all Signature treatments that have qualified for our optional 30 day lice free guarantee.

The affected person and all family members should be thoroughly screened to find evidence of lice our eggs.  Screening all members of the family is crucial to prevent reinfestation. Our trained certified head lice technicians use a high quality stainless steel comb along with their trained eyes and experience a through head screen.  Head screening requires a strand by strand inspection and can take as quick as 1 minute if lice or eggs are found right away and as long as 15-20 minutes dependent on length of hair.  Someone with lice can have one lice egg or hundreds of lice eggs. Both people have lice.  Due to the lice life cycle, not everyone will have live lice crawling around in their hair when the head screen takes place since an adult lice lives about 30 days before she dies.  By that time, an adult lice has laid 6-8 eggs a day for about 2 1/2 weeks.  If evidence of lice is found, our certified head lice technicians will show you the evidence either of the adult lice under the microscope, the lice eggs in the comb, or the lice eggs in a bowl with water so you can see them.  If evidence of lice is found, our lice technician will review with you the level of severity and our treatment options available to you: 1) No treatment 2) Do-It-Yourself, 3) Express, 4) Signature, or a comb out if under age for the treatment.  If a treatment is chosen, the $25 head screen charge is waived.  Application of our chemical free active rinse is included in the head screen price and is optional if  you and your family are determined to be lice free.

HEAD SCREENING-IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBER OF PERSON BEING TREATED

$20 per person. Charge is $0 if person requires treatment.
Because lice spread very quickly through a household, it is important that every immediate family member is screened when there is a confirmed case of head lice.  Screening all members of the family is crucial to prevent reinfestation.  Moms get head lice about 80% of the time when their kids get lice, siblings about 70% of the time, grandparents and caregivers about 35% of the time, and dads about 20% of the time. Parents with kids under 10 that have lice are particularly at risk since there is still so much head-to-head contact.
Our trained certified head lice technicians use a high quality stainless steel professional head lice comb along with their trained eyes and experience a through head screen.  Head screening requires a strand by strand inspection and can take as quick as one minute if lice or eggs are found right away and as long as 15-20 minutes dependent on length of hair.  Someone with lice can have one lice eggs or hundreds of lice eggs. Both people have lice.  Due to the lice life cycle, not everyone will have live lice crawling around in their hair when the head screen takes place since an adult lice lives about 30 days before she dies.  By that time, an adult lice has laid 6-8 eggs a day for about 2 1/2 weeks.  If evidence of lice is found, our certified head lice technicians will show you the evidence either of the adult lice under the microscope, the lice eggs in the comb, or the lice eggs in a bowl so you can see them floating in water.  If evidence of lice is found, you will be provided with treatment options: Do-It-Yourself, Express, Signature, or a comb out if under age for the treatment. You also have the option not to get a treatment.  If a treatment is chosen, the $20 head screen charge is waived.  Head screens for Dad’s are complimentary and mandatory if the person we trated wants to qualify for our optional 30-day lice free guarantee.  In addition to the head screen, we also apply our chemical free active rinse on each immediate family member as an additional preventative step in case live lice is in the hair that we did not see during the head screening.  Application of our chemical free active rinse is included in the head screen price and is mandatory if a member of your immediate family has been treated for lice and that person would like to qualify for our optional 30-day lice free guarantee.  You will leave our clinic with the rinse in your hair and a shower cap on your hair. Our active rinse will need to be in your hair for at least 15 minutes and washed out at home with shampoo.  If you do not wish to have the rinse applied (example: you are getting screened during your lunch break or have an event to go to after getting screened), please let our technician know prior to application of our rinse.  A two ounce bottle of our active rinse can be purchased for $10 and applied at home at night.
