San Antonio Lice Treatment

Did you know that traditional drug store products no longer work because Super Lice and their eggs (nits) are resistant to pesticide lice treatments. Thankfully with the AirAllé® lice treatment, effectively getting rid of lice has become fast & safe and is now available nearby in San Antonio! Our device is highly effective because the small size and shape of head lice and their eggs make it difficult for them to conserve water. The AirAllé lice treatment device kills them through dehydration. This process takes about 30 minutes. We have performed over 950,000 head lice treatments with less than a 1% re-treatment rate.

San Antonio Lice Removal

Once effectively treated, the clinician will begin the lice removal service. In this step, we remove the leftover debris from the treatment. Our professional lice removal staff can do this in only 30-60 minutes, depending on infestation levels and the length of hair. Which means you don’t have to spend hours to comb-out lice (nitpicking) at home or come back for follow-ups.

San Antonio Lice Clinics Treatment Options

checking a child for head lice

SCREENING (the first step)

Our clinicians will carefully inspect the hair and scalp. If an active case of head lice is confirmed and a treatment plan is chosen, the screening fee is waived. Because lice spread quickly through a household, it is very important that all family members are checked once an active case has been confirmed.

Signature AirAllé® Treatment

This is our most popular and effective lice treatment option. It is a 3-step process which includes the AirAllé® treatment (up to 30 minutes), up to 60-minutes of combing to remove the dead lice and eggs and a topical application. This 3-step full-service treatment option ensures you will leave lice free with no follow-up needed. With a success rate of over 99%, we are so confident you will leave lice free, we offer a 30-day service re-treatment policy* provided all members of all households where child resides have been checked for head lice in our clinic and treated as necessary.

*In the unlikely event of treatment failure, we will re-treat you for FREE!

AirAllé® treatment

EXPRESS AIRALLÉ® TREATMENT

This option includes the AirAllé® treatment (up to 30 minutes) and a topical application. This is a budget minded option for those who want the professional heated air treatment but are committed to combing at home.

We do not offer our re-treatment policy for this service.

Comb out treatment for head lice

COMB-OUT TREATMENT

We do not recommend the AirAllé® treatment for children under four or for clients for whom the AirAllé® is contraindicated. In these cases, we recommend a strand by strand traditional comb-out to remove lice and eggs using only non-toxic products. This option requires the following: an oil application on day 5 and day 10. We will provide the product and instructions for these applications. We do not offer our re-treatment policy for this service.

* 1-hour minimum. Additional combing billed in 15 minute increments.

DO-IT-YOURSELF LICE REMOVAL KIT

Our most affordable treatment option! We provide all the topical treatment products you will need, a professional lice comb, and detailed instructions on how to properly perform the comb-out. Since most parents are not experienced at lice-removal, to ensure all the lice are removed will take substantially more time than a professional treatment. The parent will need to perform several follow-up procedures during the next 11 days.

Frequently Asked Questions about Lice

TYPES

There are many types of lice, the head louse, or Pediculus humanus capitis, is a parasitic insect that can be found on the head and, more rarely, the eyebrows and eyelashes of people.

LIFE CYCLE

There are three stages of the lice life cycle: egg, nymph and adult.

ANATOMY

Head lice have six claws designed for them to crawl from hair strand to hair strand. These claws allow them to move from head to head.

HEAD TO HEAD

A head-lice infestation occurs when a female adult louse moves to a new head and lays eggs. When those eggs hatch, the lice will most likely stay on that head throughout the entire lice life cycle. Unless the head is treated and all lice and eggs are killed, the lice infestation will continue for however long the lice can live.

Adult lice will be the easiest to spot because they are the biggest. But at the size of a sesame seed, they still aren’t that big. Although lice vary in color, if you see a grayish-white or tan bug crawling through the hair, it is probably a louse. If you look closely at an adult louse, you should be able to see human blood inside it.

Look at the hair strands about a quarter inch (~0.5 cm) off the scalp. See if you can find lice eggs (often called nits) attached to individual hairs. Nits are extremely small. They look like tiny specks and will be glued pretty securely to the hair. If you see any, try pulling them off with your fingers. If you can’t easily pull them off, they are probably eggs and not dandruff.

The primary way you can get head lice is when your head comes in direct contact with the head of an infested individual. Head-to-head contact like that doesn’t guarantee that the infestation will spread, but it gives lice the best opportunity to move from the hair of the infested person to your hair.

Head lice don’t jump, swim or fly. Without strands of hair to grab with the claws on their legs, they have trouble getting around at all. However, they can crawl pretty quickly along the hair, so if your hair comes in contact with an infested head, it doesn’t take much for a louse to hitch a ride on a strand of your hair and make its way to your scalp.

Excluding the 8-9 days they spend as eggs, head lice can live for around 40-45 days on your head. As parasites, they feed on human blood several times a day.

If they are removed from their food source – say from getting knocked out of your hair with a brush or your hand – they can survive 24-48 hours. If they don’t find some human hair to crawl back to a new host during that time, they will die.

There are many ways you can kill lice. You can suffocate them, poison them, or dry them out. You can also starve them if you get them away from their food source – your head – long enough (they’ll die within 24-48 hours).

The AirAllé device is intended to kill or remove head lice and their eggs in the hair of adults and children 4 years of age and older. For children under 4, we recommend a traditional comb-out.

Yes! Because it is an FDA-cleared device, we can’t make up efficacy claims that aren’t backed up by clinical data.

Head lice do not survive long if they fall off a person and cannot feed. You don’t need to spend a lot of time or money on housecleaning activities. Follow these steps to help avoid re–infestation by lice that have recently fallen off the hair or crawled onto clothing or furniture.

  1. Machine wash and dry clothing, bed linens, and other items that the infested person wore or used during the 2 days before treatment using the hot water (130°F) laundry cycle and the high heat drying cycle. Clothing and items that are not washable can be dry–cleaned OR sealed in a plastic bag and stored for 3 days.
  2. Soak combs and brushes in hot water (at least 130°F) for 5–10 minutes.
  3. Vacuum the floor and furniture, particularly where the infested person sat or lay. However, the risk of getting infested by a louse that has fallen onto a rug or carpet or furniture is very small. Head lice survive less than 1–2 days if they fall off a person and cannot feed; nits cannot hatch and usually die within a week if they are not kept at the same temperature as that found close to the human scalp. Spending much time and money on housecleaning activities is not necessary to avoid re-infestation by lice or nits that may have fallen off the head or crawled onto furniture or clothing.
  4. Do not use fumigant sprays; they can be toxic if inhaled or absorbed through the skin.
