Lice Treatment Service in Washington D.C., Virginia and Maryland

Advice on Lice, Inc. has developed a routine method for treating head lice.
Lice Removal Service

During the first step of our Head Lice Removal Service, we manually screen the hair for nits and lice. It is recommended that the entire family be screened, as it is highly possible that more than one family member may be infested.

If nits and lice are found, we move on to step two, of our Head Lice Treatment Service which may include the application of Rid Lice killing shampoo (according to our instructions), or Lice MD non-pesticidal treatment product followed by manually removing the parasites and nits. Our combination of highly trained nitpickers and the patented NPA Lice Meister combs lead to fast and safe removal of nits and lice.

The final step of the process is a thorough sectioning of the hair, picking and combing out the nits(eggs) using the Lice Meister comb with a combination of a white conditioner, isopropyl alcohol, and water.

Lice Treatment

If nits and lice are found, we move on to step two, of our Head Lice Treatment Service which includes the application of Lice MD non-pesticidal oil treatment product (as per our instructions) to suffocate the live lice. This oil product is washed out after 20 minutes before the removal process begins.

Lice and Nit Removal

Our Lice removal process is accomplished with a thorough and methodical technique we have developed over 15 years to ensure the dead lice and nits are removed.

Lice Prevention

It is our opinion that there are no proven products which can prevent a live louse from falling into a new head. Therefore we advise families to conduct routine weekly wet conditioner comb-outs with the Lice Meister lice comb. Best prevention is early detection.

School Services

Screening Schools

Eliminating infestation of a school requires a professional level of assistance. School wide screenings should be conducted before the first day of classes, and after any extended holidays to identify and isolate any infested children until proper treatment has occurred.

The implementation of this program requires the coordination of the PTA and the school nurse with Advice on Lice, Inc. In schools who contract with Advice on Lice, Inc., lice screenings are a part of the school calendar each year. A professional nitpicker, provided by Advice on Lice, Inc., and volunteer staff and parents conducts these screenings. Adequate knowledge and experience are necessary so the volunteers must be trained in advance.

Screening services: Prices are determined by the total enrollment of the school and by the number of screenings scheduled throughout the school calendar.
