The LouseBusterTM device provides South Africa with a revolutionary new way in the fight against lice. Developed in the USA, based on breakthrough research done by parasitologist Dr Dale Clayton and university students in Utah, they found that this device not only killed over 95% of the lice but over 99% of the nits as well, making the treatment a highly efficient method of combating lice.
The treatment is performed on clean dry hair. Please make sure that your child’s hair is brushed out and free of any hair products before the treatment commences.
The treatment with the LouseBusterTM Machine normally takes 30 minutes where a trained and certified operator will carefully work through the hair using the unique applicator tip which directs and concentrates the airflow close to the scalp where the lice and nits are located.
The treatment is followed by a comb out to remove the dead lice and nits and to abide by schools' "no nit" policies. The comb out can take anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour.
To reduce your chances of re-infestation we recommend that the following measurements are taken after treatment.
It is recommended that you check all family members for signs of head lice for at least 10 to 15 days after treatment as it is very common for close friends and family to also be infected.
