Why Choose Us in Buffalo Grove and Northbrook?

Families from Buffalo Grove and Northbrook – and all across Northern Cook and Lake Counties – prefer LiceDoctors for its in-home treatment service. 

We come to you, so you don’t have to go to a salon. Because we don’t have regional franchises that are limited by physical clinic locations, we are able to dedicate resources elsewhere and save you money. 

We focus on hiring the best head lice technicians around Chicago and in the northern suburbs. Their expertise constantly earns high praise and terrific reviews by our clients and news outlets alike.

Our lice technicians come to your home at whatever time of day works best for you. We operate 365 days a year and have informed lice experts available at 312-765-7266, day or night.

LiceDoctors has over 500,000 happy customers and a 99.6% success rate. We even offer a 30-day guarantee so you don’t have any risk when you call us.

Dr. Stephen Beck, our Medical Director, makes us the only mobile lice treatment service across all of Northern Illinois with a medical doctor on staff. Dr. Beck is an expert in head lice and ensures we provide top-notch service to our customers and sound guidance to our technicians.

Your lice technician will use non-toxic, chemical free products to comb out and hand-pick all lice and nits. A careful follow-up plan, which your technician will outline for you, will ensure we won’t have to send anyone for a second visit.

You’ll only need one visit from a technician to your home to put an end to your head lice problem. 

No matter where you are – from Buffalo Grove to Riverwoods up to Deerfield – we will send a local technician right to you, at a time that works best for your family. 

Call us at 312-765-7266 from 6 AM until 11 PM.

Pricing in Buffalo Grove and Northbrook

  • $199 – 1st hour, includes the technician’s travel up to 50 miles.
  • $99 – each hour after that
  • No follow-up visits necessary

We believe in pricing by the hour after the first hour (in 15-minute increments) rather than by the head. When we treat multiple family members, this will lead to a lower overall bill.

On average, a family of 4 will pay $300-$400 for about 2.5 to 3 hours of work. Treatment time varies based on the amount of hair, number of infested people, and how advanced the lice cases are.

We charge less because we don’t have to pay the upkeep for a clinic. We are thus able to pass along those savings to you.

  • HSAs & FSAs usually cover lice treatment
  • An extra fee applies if your technician drives over 50 miles


We highly recommend you steer clear of shampoos and opt for professional head lice removal. These shampoos have toxic chemicals and pesticides, have been ineffective in fighting “super lice” that are present in Northbrook and Buffalo Grove, as well as all over the nation, and have adverse side effects like burning, itching, and redness.
The late, hot summer months (August and September), when kids are at summer camp or returning for the start of the school year, are often the time of year where we see the most cases of head lice pop up in and around Chicago’s suburbs, including Northbrook and Buffalo Grove. That said, we are active treating lice 12 months a year.
This may be a bit of an extreme step, but it is an increasingly common way that lice spreads. This is because head lice crawl from one head to the next. Before you get too close to your Chicagoland friends or let your kids get close to their friends, make sure they haven’t experienced symptoms of head lice!
Because they are contagious, head lice have unfortunately been left with a stigma that makes people associate it with dirtiness or uncleanliness. However, head lice actually prefer clean hair, which is easier for them to latch onto. Our discreet in-home treatment in the Northbrook and Buffalo Grove area gives you the option to keep your head lice problem as private as you’d like.

Client Testimonials

  • “My wife and I have four children, but it seems that there are usually three times that number of kids running around the house. With cousins, friends, and neighbors using our home as the central play area, the place is always busy. One evening, after dinner, when things were finally calm in the house my wife and I saw two of our children scratching their heads and we looked at each other knowingly. We had planned for this day as so many of their friends have battled lice. We called in the LiceDoctors and 3 hours later we were all checked and clear. Great to know that we can count on them if we get lice again. Hey 4 never know.” Jesse W. in Palatine, Illinois

  • “Very effective treatment and the overall experience was very positive. We have already recommended you to the school nurse. Thanks, LiceDoctors!” Julie B. in Prospect Heights, IL

  • “Fortunately, we knew exactly what to do when we realized our kids had lice because we had heard some friends talk about the benefits of in-home lice treatment. We got a LiceDoctors technician, Jen, there the very next day and, indeed, our kids had lice. She treated them and checked the rest of us. We also got a few of our kids’ friends checked. Their parents were very appreciative. We highly recommend LiceDoctors.”  Marc E. in Buffalo Grove, IL
