Clinic in Louisville Kills Pesticide-Resistant Lice

LOUISVILLE, Ky., Aug. 20, 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 Kentucky—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 has completed their treatment at Nit Wits has spent their hard earned money on over the counter products purchased at their local pharmacy with disappointing results. "They truly wished they had visited us first." Said Amy Sharp, co-owner of Nit Wits, a Louisville-based lice clinic. "They can't understand why the shampoos don't work, but they sure are happy when they leave here an hour later, lice free!"

Nit Wits, a Louisville based professional lice eradication clinic, has been treating individuals from Kentucky and Indiana since January of 2015. They are a Preferred Provider in the Lice Clinics of America network. That means all its technicians are certified AirAllé operators.

Nit Wits is located at 9302 New LaGrange Road in Louisville. The clinic is open seven days a week arranged by appointments. AirAllé treatments 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.
