GLENWOOD CITY — Beware the Super Lice! That’s the headline on news stories from many of the largest media organizations today.
Dr. Kyong Yoon, who has researched pesticide resistance in head lice since the 1990s released an update showing that head lice in 83 percent of the states he sampled—including Wisconsin now have gene mutations making them resistant to pesticides in the most popular lice products.
Parents around the country are no doubt slapping their heads and saying, “So that’s why I couldn’t get rid of my kid’s lice infestation!”
Lucky for them, there is Lice Clinics of America, a professional lice service that kills head lice with heated air using AirAllé, a patented, FDA-cleared medical device.
“Every family that has come to our clinic has tried treating at home with the familiar brand OTC products,” said Tanya O’Brien, co-owner of Lice Avengers a Western Wisconsin based lice clinic. “They all think they eradicated the head lice only to find the problem returns a few weeks later. This study shows families in our area that pesticide-resistance to head lice is real. Our families we’ve treated love leaving lice-free and they all appreciate our treatment services.”
Lice Avengers has helped many families be lice-free since opening in February of this year, and is a Preferred Provider in the Lice Clinics of America network. That means all its technicians are certified AirAllé operators.
Lice Avengers, LLC is located at 127 East Oak Street in Glenwood City, WI. The clinic is open seven days a week by appointment only. AirAllé treatments there take about an hour, and come with a 30-day guarantee.
With 85 U.S. clinics and 105 international clinics, Lice Clinics of America is the largest network of professional head-lice-treatment centers in the world. Lice Clinics of America and AirAllé are brands owned by Larada Sciences, Inc.
