Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
Tech Does a Super Job!
“Thanks LiceDoctors! Your tech did a super job of eliminating the lice. I was very impressed with how polished and professional she was. Also impressed that the lice have gone away! Thanks again.” – Morgan B. in Anoka, Minnesota
So Glad They Finally Took the LiceDoctors Route
“When a note arrived home in my daughter’s backpack that there was an outbreak in the grade, l swung into action. I bought the Nix and followed the directions but that led us nowhere. After combing her lovely blonde hair ad nauseum, I accepted the reality that we needed to do more. I found out about LiceDoctors and their chemical-free protocol and decided to try them. I am so glad we took this route. She is done with the lice and I keep her hair braided to keep it that way!” – Taylor G. in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota
Tech Terrific and Knew Exactly What to Do
“We tried a number of treatment options that failed before we learned about LiceDoctors from friends. Thank goodness we found them because I had literally run out of things to kill those creepy bugs. LiceDoctors was terrific and they knew exactly what to do. After our tech left we did some at-home follow-up and that was it. We are all free of lice…haven’t seen any lice or eggs in weeks!” – Carrie M. in Eden Prairie, MN
Technician Worked Magic
“My husband, three kids, and I had tried a variety of pharmaceutical products for month. They would seem to work for a week or so and then the lice will be back. It was extremely frustrating and it took me a while to finally learn that these products are just not efficacious anymore. I finally called our pediatrician and she referred us to LiceDoctors. Your technician came to us that day and worked magic. She accomplished what we could not do…best money we ever spent!.” – Randi N. in Minneapolis, Minnesota
“No more nits, YAY, finally! Thank you, LiceDoctors, from the our entire family! This treatment really works and we have told all of our friends and neighbors about you!” – Tami M. in St. Paul, MN
Be Familiar with the Appearance of Head Lice
As we treated Kerry G’s family in Minneapolis, she leaned in closely to get a good look at the lice that we removed from her daughter’s hair. “I honestly did not know how to recognize the lice in the hair. I had seen some pictures online but I still could not identify if what I was looking at was a lice infestation. As the lice technician, Nancy, extracted the bugs from my daughter’s head she placed them against the white paper towel. Finally I was able to see what they look like. Perhaps if I had known what to look for I would’ve identified this case before it got so bad. Who knows? But I would recommend that parents become as familiar with the appearance of lice as possible so that they may be able to recognize a case at an early stage.”, Kerry reported.
Of course head lice are very off-putting to many people so it is not a subject that people like to explore before they really have to. We understand that. We also know that when parents at least know what they are looking for, it gives them a sense of confidence and helps to dispel some of the fear about contracting a case.
The photo that Nancy took above of a couple of head lice that she removed from Kerry’s daughter’s hair show very clearly that lice have six legs and no wings and that differentiates them from other insects who have wings. Lice propel themselves by crawling; they cannot hop, jump, or fly. Despite being wingless, they move extremely fast across the head.
Notice that head lice are pale brown. They are about the size of a large sesame seed. When they are first hatched from the egg, they are very tiny. Over the next 10 days or so, they grow until they become mature bugs. It is at that point that they lay eggs. Lice survive on the head for about a month before they die. Although the mature bug dies, it usually leaves behind its legacy of several eggs.
Naturally it takes a bit longer to remove an infestation that has been brewing in the hair for several weeks, which is why it can be beneficial to you to take some time to become familiar with what lice look like. Regardless of the extent of the infestation, your LiceDoctors’ technician will remove all visible lice and nits from the hair. We will also educate you so that you know exactly what lice look like so that if you encounter them at any point in the future you will recognize them right away. If you are unsure as to whether you are seeing lice in the hair, we can tell you. We will eradicate the lice no matter whether there is one louse in the hair or many hundreds. Call LiceDoctors in Minnesota at 612-328-9210 and let us know when you want us to make a house call. An experienced lice professional will be there to get you cleared up and back in action before you know it, using a safe chemical-free protocol that works. That’s a guarantee!
