It’s no secret that ridding your family of head lice can be stressful and time-consuming—a nightmare that some have called a “lice-mare.” Most do-it-yourself lice treatments require repeated applications, tedious comb-outs, and nitpicking, with no guarantee of success. If one nit is missed, the lice will return.
Lice Clinics of America® – Woodbridge and Lice Clinics of America® – Stafford offer an immediate, FDA-cleared, guaranteed solution and professional technicians do it for you so you can skip the mess and the endless combing.
Kristi Winkler, owner of the Lice Clinics of America treatment centers in Woodbridge and Stafford, says, “Treating head lice have become more difficult as they have developed immunity to the most popular do-it-yourself products.” The most recent study of these so-called “super lice” published in the Journal of Medical Entomology found that 98 percent of head lice in 48 U.S. states are now immune to pyrethroids, the class of pesticides used by OTC lice products. Pyrethroids are also linked to developmental and behavioral problems in children.
“When using pesticides that are no longer effective and potentially dangerous, it’s not uncommon for people to struggle with head lice for weeks or months,” states Kristi, “Most parents are thrilled to learn that they can come to our clinics in Stafford and Woodbridge and leave lice-free, in about an hour.”
Lice Clinics of America is the exclusive provider of professional head lice treatment using the breakthrough AirAllé® medical device. Cleared by the FDA and clinically shown to kill live lice and more than 99 percent of eggs (nits) the AirAllé uses precision controlled heated air to dehydrate lice and eggs. Most treatments take about an hour and are guaranteed to be effective. “And, says Kristi, “the good news is that the pesticide-free, non-toxic AirAllé treatments are effective against “super lice.”
“Our clinic has been a welcome blessing to parents that used drug store do-it-yourself products in vain,” said Kristi, “And so many parents are uncomfortable using pesticide-based products on their children.” Worldwide, AirAllé medical devices have treated more than 850,000 cases of head lice with a success rate of better than 99 percent. There are now more than 300 clinics in more than 36 countries.
“We want to get the word out that families don’t have to struggle with head lice any longer,” says Kristi. For parents that have tried and failed to treat head lice on their own, our professional technicians can end your ‘lice-mare’ today with the fastest, safest, most effective treatment on the market.
Lice Clinics of America also offers a complete line of non-toxic, pesticide-free, fast-acting at home lice prevention and treatment products. We have treatment options that work for every family and every budget. Preventive shampoos, conditioners, and sprays can serve as a lice repellant.
