Lice Treatment Center® Services in Schools
When children return to the classroom in the Fall or after vacation, they might unwittingly bring with them some rather despicable creatures – pediculosis or head lice.
Lice Treatment Center® understands the urgency of a school infestation and has an entire team of LTC-Trained technicians who can arrive on-site and evaluate the level of infestation. We act empathetically and reassuringly to screen the children and will provide parents with a treatment plan that involves information about head lice removal and what products should be applied. For residential schools, we can also provide on-site removal upon request.
When a head lice infestation occurs, it’s important to take action as quickly as possible. A single adult female louse can lay up to eight eggs (called nits) per day that get cemented to children’s hair shafts. Multiply these by dozens of lice that can quickly crawl from head to head, and you get a sense of how contagious head lice are.
LTC uses Lice Treatment Center® treatment and removal products that were developed in- house at Lice Treatment Center® by Dr. Elin Cohen, a licensed pediatrician and LTC’s Medical Director. Our products are formulated with safe and non-toxic ingredients. The active ingredients in the products are natural, essential oils most effective on the market. Our professional technicians also provide families with instructions for proper follow-up and care of home environments following lice removal.
