Clinics in Michigan Kill Pesticide-Resistant Lice

GREATER DETROIT AREA, Mich., Aug. 20, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Beware of 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 the midwest—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 are Rapunzel's Lice Boutique and Remedy Lice Treatment Centers in Michigan, Indiana and Ohio. Professional services that kill head lice with heated air using AirAllé, the only patented, FDA-cleared medical device that kill over 99% of lice eggs in one single treatment.

"Nearly every person who comes through here has tried a name-brand over the counter lice treatment first," said Phil Brechting, co-owner of Rapunzels, a Michigan based lice clinic. Corinn Nichols from Remedy Lice Treatment Center added "They can't understand why these pesticide based treatments don't work, but they sure are happy when they leave here an hour later, lice-free."

Together Rapunzel's and Remedy eradicate over 500 individuals and diagnose 1,500 people a month. Both are Preferred Providers in the Lice Clinics of America network. That means all its technicians are certified AirAllé operators.

Combined, Rapunzel's and Remedy have 6 locations in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. The clinics are open seven days a week by appointment only. AirAllé complete treatments there take about an hour, and come with a 30-day guarantee.
