TREATMENT FACILITY OPENS
Lice Beware, LLC, a head lice removal treatment center, recently opened in Mt. Pleasant. Founded by two Mt. Pleasant residents, Emily Linville and Shelly Klimas, Lice Beware offers the first lice treatment center in the Lowcountry specializing in all-natural lice removal services and products. Lice Beware is the only lice removal company in South Carolina to use the nationally practiced Shepherd MethodTM of strand-by-strand nit removal.
Lice Beware co-founder Emily Linville said, “Lice is the four letter word that strikes fear into every parent! Anyone who has dealt with a stubborn case of head lice knows how frustrating it can be. The time, energy, and expense of dealing with a lice infestation can be a daunting task. We are looking forward to helping Lowcountry parents get rid of lice and keep it away.”
Lice Beware utilizes the nationally practiced Shepherd Method TM of strand- by-strand nit removal. This methodical approach to lice removal ensures that virtually every strand of hair is checked for lice and nits. “The Shepherd Method is used by over 125 lice removal services nationwide. We are excited to bring our extensive training and knowledge from the Shepherd Institute to the Lowcountry and offer our clients a truly professional service,” says Shelly Klimas, co-founder of Lice Beware.
Lice Beware also carries a full line of treatment and prevention products both in the center and online at www.licebeware.com. The company provides educational presentations and screenings for schools, child development centers and camps as well. “Better education really is the key to preventing the spread of lice,” added Klimas.
The family-friendly facility is conveniently located in the heart of Mount Pleasant at 573 Belle Station Blvd. The center is less than a mile from I-526 making it easily accessible from Daniel Island, North Charleston, West Ashley and Summerville.
