Head lice are a common scourge, affecting 6-12 million American children a year. If your child comes home with lice what should you do? Most Americans go to the drug store initially and purchase over the counter products. Unfortunately, because of resistance, these products are no longer as effective as they were 20 years ago. Currently the cure rates of RID and NIX products are only about 45%.
There are new prescription treatments available, but they are very expensive, insurance usually doesn’t cover these, they are still mostly pesticides and their cure rates are only about 75%.
So what other options are out there? Many people are surprised to learn they don’t have to battle this little demon parasite themselves! There are places you can go that will treat your infestation for you… Lice Salons!
What is a lice salon? Some are set up like medical offices, while others are almost like spas. Some lice salons manually comb out your lice and nits, while others, like Rapunzel’s Lice Boutique offer a cutting edge treatment; The AirAlle. The AirAlle is an FDA cleared medical device that kills 99.2% of the lice eggs (nits) using heated air. Because the AirAlle kills the nits, the holy grail of lice treatment, Rapunzel’s is able to treat an infestation in only one short visit. Additionally, Rapunzel’s offers a 30 day guarantee. If the little buggers should return, they will continue to treat you for free.
If you should have the misfortune of finding head lice on your family, consider going to one of Rapunzel’s clean, comfortable Boutiques and sit back and let the professionals do the work for you while you enjoy our free wifi and a nice cup of coffee.
