Detection and confirmation of lice and/or nits along with educating the parent or guardian responsible for the client is first and foremost. No treatments will be done until there is confirmation of lice and/or nits and there is a discussion of treatment options.
- Step 1– We do a thorough screening to determine if there is an active case of lice.
- Step 2 – A comb-out with Absolute Clear Mousse and the Terminator Nit Removal Comb. This comb-out is a very important part of the process. The nits do not come out by themselves. Even though the nits are desiccated they need to be removed. If a large amount of nits are present, additional comb-out time may be necessary.
- Step 3 – The Lice Armor Treatment follow up schedule is done at home. Each family receives a tailor made schedule that includes every member of the household. This plan is simple to follow so you can leave the Super Lice Clinic knowing exactly what to do.
- Bonus – Education and communication. Every parent and caregiver is educated during treatment about house cleaning, how to do a head-check and the importance of communication with regards to their lice situation. Most people expect to do more house cleaning than we suggest. Our “At Home” tip sheet will direct you through practical clean-up procedures to both assure the threat of re-infestation from the environment is eliminated and also get your family back to a normal life ASAP!
You will leave the Super Lice Clinic knowing how to do a thorough combing head check with a clear understanding of what a nit and a louse look like. You will also appreciate the importance of communication in breaking the cycle of lice outbreaks in your community. If you inform your school, family and friends, it will afford them the opportunity to be checked and, if necessary, treated.
