If you have tried to cure a case of head lice without professional help then you know how difficult it is. Chemical treatments are not effective in getting rid of super lice or lice eggs (nits) and they may have side effects. It is very frustrating to spend days combing and picking only to discover more nits and/or lice in the hair.
LiceDoctors can help you! We offer fully guaranteed, chemical-free, in-home lice treatment and nit removal services. LiceDoctors is Albuquerque’s leading lice treatment service; we are the only lice and nit removal service in New Mexico with a physician on staff! We have successfully eradicated lice in over 250,000 children and adults. Our technicians are lice removal experts who offer support to you during a trying time.
LiceDoctors makes house calls to you in an unmarked car to offer you convenient, confidential, and private treatment. In-home treatment allows for maximum flexibility for your family; when each family member is checked and cleared, he or she can resume regular activities without the need to wait at a salon for other family members to be checked.
Our treatment is surprisingly affordable and is covered by most Flexible Spending Plans and by some insurance plans. LiceDoctors has earned an “A” rating with the Better Business Bureau due to our strong performance history.
These are some of the many reasons that LiceDoctors is recommended and used by many pediatricians, school nurses, school and camp administrators, and former clients. We can help you today in Albuquerque and surrounding areas; call us day or night, 7 days a week at 505-738-1478.

Lice Treatment Client Testimonials
LiceDoctors Gets Daughter to Sit Still for Treatment
“I am so grateful to LiceDoctors. Our experience before we found LiceDoctors was horrible. Our technician Alexis turned around the experience for us. She was so calm and competent that I knew we were on our way to recovery the minute she set foot in my home. My daughter held her kitty on her lap the whole time which got her to sit still, which I could not get her to do. My daughter actually said when Alexis was done, That was fun. When can we do it again? Thank you to LiceDoctors for saving us.” – Carla W. in Encino, NM
Anxious Mom Now Relieved
“Three cheers for LiceDoctors and their lovely staff. I asked everyone a thousand questions as I was so anxious and everyone answered them with kindness and respect. Even after after the treatment, when I thought I found a nit, Wendy the owner asked me to text a picture of what I found at 11 pm and it turned out not to be a nit. In fact, several weeks have passed, and I never found another nit in any of our heads. If we ever get lice again, I know who to call!” – Gabrielle L. in Belen, New Mexico
Head Lice Worries Now History
“Our LiceDoctor technician, Jennifer, was kind, smart, hardworking, and overall excellent. She demystified the process and gave my daughter a simple to adhere to follow-up plan that provided us with insurance and assurance that this case was conquered. My daughter is back in school with worries of head lice behind her. Now she can focus on her school work! We are grateful for LiceDoctors.” – Caroline in Albuquerque, New Mexico
Kids Allowed Back in School Day After Treatment
“My kids go to a private school that has a rigid “no nit” lice policy. Every day that they missed school was upsetting to all of us. Believe me, we tried everything! Then my friend told me about LiceDoctors. I can’t believe how easy it was once they came to us. They are thorough, kind,and professional. Who knew there were people who do this for a living and know what they are doing? Money so well spent that we have now spread the word to everyone we know. Our kids are back in school and we give LiceDoctors the highest praise.” – Carl C. in Albuquerque, NM
Hats and Head Lice
When it comes to head lice, we are all often told not to share hats. Many people fear that sharing hats, combs, and hair accessories is a major source of spreading head lice. In fact, sharing of hats and other related related items represents only a minor cause of the spread of head lice. Does that mean that we at LiceDoctors suggest that you share your hats with friends? Absolutely not, however it is important to recognize that nearly 95% of the cases of head lice derive from direct head-to-head contact.
In order to contract a case of head lice from a hat or any other in animate object, an infested person has to wear that hat and at least one bug must leave the head and reside on that hat. Another person has to put on that hat before the louse dies or crawls off the hat. If there is only one bug on the hat, that bug must be pregnant. In general, lice do not like to leave a head where the temperature is optimal and where their food source is (human blood), and crawl onto an inanimate object where they will die usually within a day. If they are going to leave the comfort of a human head, these lice want to go to another human head where they can thrive.
Valeria G. in Albuquerque called LiceDoctors last week to ask us to check her child who had gone to a birthday party where they had decorated and shared caps. She was worried that her daughter may have picked up a case of head lice through all the sharing of the caps. We assured her that her daughter was likely to be lice-free and when we went to check her, sure enough, we found no signs of lice or nits in the hair.
In general, the rule of thumb is do not share hats or any hair accessories, but remember that a much more likely source of head lice is direct contact with another person who already has head lice and who inadvertently shares those bugs with you.
