Lice Clinics of America wants moms to know their clinics are here for them on Mother’s Day and all year. Today’s moms are modern-day “superheroes” balancing work, home, kids and more. The stress and pressure moms face under normal circumstances is high enough, and when head lice enter the picture, it can feel like fuel to the “fire.”
Indeed, many Lice Clinics of America treatment centers were launched by moms after dealing with head lice in their own families. It’s no wonder the clinics are champions of moms everywhere. Experiencing head lice can be an exercise in futility for moms because there is so much misinformation and confusion about treatments—what works, and what doesn’t work.
Lice Clinics of America treatment centers offer education and support for moms, providing families, schools, and pediatric practices with the facts about head lice. The two most important facts moms need to know is that head lice have nothing to do with hygiene, and that most head lice are now immune to the pesticides used in the most popular lice products.
The stigma that head lice are caused by dirty homes or hair keeps people from seeking treatment which then results in worsening and persistent infestations. When moms try to treat head lice on their own, they often fail with products that no longer work, and grow even more stressed and frustrated.
The first and foremost message moms receive at clinics is this: You didn’t do anything wrong. Many are embarrassed that their children have head lice, and that feeling can prevent them from seeking treatment, which just makes things worse. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has made it clear that “personal hygiene or cleanliness in the home or school has nothing to do with getting head lice.”
The second point focuses on the fact that most popular head lice products rely on pesticides, and that most lice are now immune to those pesticides. A study published in the Journal of Medical Entomology in 2016 found that 98 percent of head lice in the United States and other countries have developed a genetic resistance to pyrethroids, the class of pesticides used by popular lice products. Pyrethroids have also been linked to developmental and behavioral problems in children.
Lice Clinics of America is the exclusive provider of lice treatment using the revolutionary AirAllé® medical device. It’s an FDA-cleared, Class I medical device clinically proven to kill live lice and more than 99 percent of eggs (nits) using microprocessor-controlled heated air to dehydrate the bugs and eggs. Most treatments take about an hour and are guaranteed to be effective.
When moms discover a pesticide-free cure for head lice is just an hour away, the joy and relief they express when they leave a clinic lice-free makes every day feel like Mother’s Day.
Lice Clinics of America also offers pesticide-free, guaranteed home lice treatment and prevention products, including a home version of the AirAllé called OneCureTM. These products are available at clinics and online.
