Clinic in Westchester Kills Pesticide-Resistant Lice

WESTCHESTER, N.Y., Aug. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 New York—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.

"Gone are the days of tedious nitpicking and multiple shampoo treatments," said Michelle Duffy, co-owner of Advanced Lice Treatment, a Westchester, NY-based lice clinic. "We are the 2015 scientific solution to immediate and effective head lice removal."

Advanced Lice Treatment, open since May 2015, is a Preferred Provider in the Lice Clinics of America network. That means all its technicians are certified AirAllé operators.

Advanced Lice Treatment is conveniently located right off the Saw Mill River Parkway at 677 Commerce Street - Suite 200, Thornwood, NY, 10594. The clinic is open seven days a week by appointment only. AirAllé treatments there take about an hour.
