If you’re a parent, you may have experienced the horror of your child being sent home from school, daycare, or summer camp because he or she has lice. First, you’re grossed out by the fact that your little angel has bugs in his or her hair. (Even the cleanest hair can get lice – lice love clean hair.) Next, panic sets in.
What to do? If you’re tempted to rush out to the pharmacy to buy one of the lice treatments you’ve seen on the shelf for years or even one that your parents used, take a breath first. There are a few things you should know about over-the-counter lice treatments and how they work:
5 Things You Should Know About Over-The-Counter Lice Treatments
So, when you look at the big picture – the neurotoxins, the combing, the re-treatments, the risk of overuse, and the fact that lice are resistant to pyrethroids, over-the-counter lice treatments don’t seem like a very good idea.
The good news is there’s finally an alternative to over-the-counter lice treatments that’s safe and effective for children and adults!
A Revolutionary Alternative To Over-The-Counter Lice Treatments
A team of physicians, and engineers has developed a safe and effective way to completely get rid of lice using a controlled flow of heated air, called the Flosonix. This device uses a combination of quick, dry heat and air that dehydrates the lice, causing them to die. Heated air is extremely effective at not just killing the adult and adolescent lice, but their eggs, as well, leaving them incapable of continuing the life cycle.
Now, this doesn’t mean you should immediately get out your hairdryer and try to get rid of your child’s lice with it. Hairdryers can be very hot and could burn their delicate scalp.
Professional heated air lice removal treatment dehydrates lice and their eggs and is the safest and most effective method of getting rid of head lice. And, it’s done in one treatment (yes, you heard it right – one!). Only available at professional lice treatment clinics with trained clinicians on staff, the heated air method is 99% effective at getting rid of lice and their eggs – all without home combing, re-treatments, and stress. Licenders is the only clinic using this treatment in NYC and Fairfield County, CT.
Say goodbye to over-the-counter lice treatments and say hello to heated air!
