Scratching your head over where to go for lice treatment in Newton?

Fret no more – Lice Aunties Newton Treatment Center is now open in Newton Upper Falls, and to celebrate, they are offering free scheduled head checks on Tuesdays in December and January from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Lice Aunties is the only certified provider of Louse Buster in Massachusetts, according to a press release. Louse Buster, is an FDA approved device that uses controlled heated air in lieu of toxic chemicals, according to the release.

Lice Aunties does head checks, offers products to deter future infestations, and will dry your jacket to kill hitchhiking lice while you get your treatment.

Owner and “lice-a-nator” Julie Weiman started Lice Aunties in 2008, working with schools, summer camps and individuals as a one-person operation, according to the release. Now she has five other Lice Aunties working with her, and has partnered with her husband, Newton entrepreneur Peter Blumenthal, to open a physical location customized to put clients at ease while getting rid of their lice.

The treatment center is located at 90 Oak Street. Lice Aunties operates 7 days a week by appointment.

For more information, contact Julie@LiceAunties.com or call her at 617-981-9599.
