OLATHE, Kan., Aug. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beware the Super Lice! That's the headline on news stories from many of the largest media organziations 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 Kansas and Missouri—now have gene mutations making them resistant to pesticides in the most popular lice shampoos.
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.
"Nearly every person who comes through here has tried the name-brand lice shampoos first and more than once with treatment failure," said Cherie Parker, co-owner of Heartland Healthy Heads Lice Removal and Resource Center, an Olathe-based lice clinic. "Most are frustrated and have no idea why the over the counter products don't work and glad when they leave our clinic an hour later, lice-free."
Heartland Healthy Heads provides screening, community education and treatment options and is a Preferred Provider in the Lice Clinics of America network. That means all its technicians are certified AirAllé operators.
Heartland Healthy Heads is located at 801 N. Mur-len, in Olathe, KS. The clinic is operates by appointment seven days a week. 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.
