Why Choose Us in Vernon Hills or Palatine?

Families who live around the City in a Garden are extra discerning. We know that this area has some of the nation’s most highly educated and technically knowledgeable population in the country. LiceDoctors is pleased to have your continued support based on our combination of professionalism, caring, and effective treatments. As today’s lice continue to become more resistant to the traditional lice treatment products (prescription lice treatments and over-the-counter lice killing shampoos) it is that much more important to use an all natural, and scientifically proven effective treatment.

We want you to let you know that there are a lot of myths and junk science surrounding head lice. The biggest is that the over-the-counter or even prescription shampoos and creams work to kill them. Unfortunately, they don’t. With generations of use, these treatments have lost efficacy as the lice have grown resistant to the chemical pesticides. And, they were never very good at killing the eggs (nits) – no matter what claims the products made.
Many of the “home remedies” you may hear about from friends and family (or YouTube) have merit, but are rarely implemented properly, and end up just causing frustration and more expense, as the outbreak isn’t contained.
LiceDoctors, in Vernon Hills and Palatine, is here to help. Call us at 312-765-7266 and one of our long-time dispatchers can answer any of your questions, and have a professional head lice removal technician come to your home within hours.
Technicians have the benefit of guidance from our Medical Director, Dr. Stephen Beck. All treatments that LiceDoctors uses are 100% guaranteed, and are conducted in the most convenient spot: your Vernon Hills or Palatine home. Your technician has the experience needed to conduct a thorough, section by section lice treatment of your hair first with wet hair and then with dry hair. Most important the treatments work—we have eliminated lice from over 500,000 heads! 

Put yourself in capable hands and your Vernon Hills and Palatine lice technician will exceed your expectations! Call today for lice treatment at a time that works best for your family.

Vernon Hills and Palatine FAQs

Are “super lice” real?
Yes, they are. They have been identified in at least 45 states in university studies including in Illinois. LiceDoctors have seen them first-hand all over the Chicagoland area. The term “super lice” describes lice that are resistant to the chemical pesticides in over-the-counter and prescription treatments. We have seen, first hand, that many lice are able to survive the use of chemical lice products. These lice must be physically removed from the hair, which LiceDoctors technicians in Vernon Hills and Palatine are experts at doing.
My kids are in public school and I use public transportation to get to/from work – is there any hope we can avoid getting head lice?
There is no guarantee, but you can reduce the risks by taking a few precautions in public in Vernon Hills and Palatine. The easiest prevention method for head lice is to keep your hair from encountering the lice to begin with. Long hair should be combed tightly into a buns or braids. You and your children should learn to avoid circumstances that put your heads in contact with others – reduce or change hugging patterns, don’t share hats or grooming items, and perhaps avoid leaning your head on the headrests of your public transportation. We also recommend using mousse, gel, or hairspray to effectively place a protective coating over the hair. LiceDoctors has a product available; our peppermint scented Lice Repellent Spray ( is known to reduce lice transmission.
What do lice nits (eggs) look like?
Lice eggs (commonly called nits) are laid on the hair shaft, usually within 1/4 inch from the scalp and are adhered to the hair with a glue-like secretion that holds the nits tightly in place. Nits are oval in shape with a tiny spike on one end. They look dark brown or bronze when placed against a white background and are encased in a translucent shell. A LiceDoctors technician in Vernon Hills or Palatine can come to your home to remove all the lice and visible nits and show you exactly what head lice and nits look like and how to identify them in the future.

  • “I can’t believe I wasted so much time using those chemicals and trying to treat this on my own.  If there is ever a job that calls for an expert, lice picking is it. Who knew? Well now I do and so do you. Your best move will be to call LiceDoctors. They come to your home, get rid of the lice, and I checked around and they are definitely the lowest price. This is a no brainer.” Janice B. in Vernon Hills, IL.

  • “My sister’s kids had head lice (unbeknownst to anyone) and they spent the weekend with us. About two weeks later my kids were scratching their heads and I knew exactly what to do. I did exactly what she did which was to call LiceDoctors. Good move. The kids are free of lice and there was no hassle involved.” Jordana N. in Highland Park, Illinois

  • “I thought I could save money by treating my kids on my own. Turns out I ended up spending more money because I bought lice shampoos that did not work.
