A follow-up appointment is required 7-9 days after the first treatment to ensure the guarantee.
Head lice are highly contagious so we can not guarantee head lice will not come back. Geelong Head Lice Service can assist with education about safe practices at home and school and our salon stocks preventative products that can help prevent future re-infestation.
What happens if we find baby lice after the follow up treatment?
If you return within 9 days of the second treatment with live nymphs (baby lice) only, a free treatment will be performed. Due to the head lice life cycle, it is impossible that you could return with adult lice or live eggs within this time unless a re-infestation has occurred. If this is the case a new treatment will need to be commenced.
Due to the current head lice epidemic we cannot guarantee against re-infestations, however we are active in the community by aiding in education of products, methods and best prevention practices.
