It’s About All of Us
Head lice affect us all. When an infestation occurs, it disrupts your entire community. When your child comes home with head lice, life for classmates, friends, siblings, and parents is turned on its ear. That’s why it’s so important to get rid of them quickly, Once and For All.
Lice Clinics of America (LCA) was created to make the swift return to normal life, and the relief that comes with it, possible. We want to empower parents, school personnel, medical professionals and any other person caring for a child by giving them a safe, fast and effective head lice treatment.
Lice Clinics of America’s secret weapon in the battle against lice is our AirAllé® device.
While doing research on the biology of birds and their feather lice in 1996, Dr. Clayton discovered that, due to Utah’s arid climate, it was difficult to keep lice cultures alive. Around this same time, his own elementary school aged children contracted head lice that appeared to be resistant to chemical shampoos. He wanted a more effective method of getting rid of lice, one that used dry, warm air. Ultimately, he found that a combination of heat and considerable airflow is required to desiccate the lice. However, he also discovered conventional blow driers do not work well because they tend to mat the hair (which protects the lice) and also have wide temperature swings that may be too cool to kill lice or dangerously hot on the scalp.
After years of development and experimentation, Dr. Clayton’s lab created a custom-engineered prototype they dubbed the “LouseBuster.” The results of this work were published in 2006 in the journal Pediatrics. This paper revealed the success of the LouseBuster device for killing head lice and their eggs. An accompanying press release by the University of Utah got attention worldwide, leading to international interest in this device, and the critical need for it.
Larada Sciences was formed in 2006 to take this innovative technology to market. In 2014 Larada Sciences created the Lice Clinics of America brand.
