head lice make headlines

Lice Clinics of America has long been viewed by the media as an authority in the battle to eradicate head lice from the world. When there is a story on head lice, journalists often call us first. Here are some of the many media stories that have featured LCA.


 Super lice are no match for the company’s FDA-cleared AirAllé medical device

MIAMI, FL – May 14, 2019   – Lice Clinics of America – Miami, part of the world’s largest network of professional urgent-care head lice treatment centers, recently announced that their clinic at 1801 Coral Way, Suite 320, Miami, has reached the milestone of 1,000 successful head lice treatments using heated air, since opening their doors in March 2017.

“We’re incredibly proud of this milestone but the greatest gratitude goes to the countless families we have had the opportunity of helping,” said Heather O’Connor, owner of Lice Clinics of America – Miami. “We knew our work would be rewarding but we had no idea the multitude of wonderful people we’d meet and even form friendships with. There are plenty of options available to people but we’ve seen over time that our community is realizing our service stands apart not only because we use science and technology but because we genuinely love our customers. Without our customers and an amazing staff we would be nothing”

The company has seen explosive growth since forming the Lice Clinics of America brand in 2014 and now boasts 330 clinics in 36 countries, with new clinics opening every month. The secret to the firm’s success is its revolutionary technology in the form of AirAllé, an FDA-cleared medical device proven to kill live lice and more than 99 percent of eggs in an hour-long treatment using heated air to dehydrate lice and nits.

One in four children under 13 years of age get head lice, and that number is growing as traditional lice shampoos are increasingly ineffective. A 2016 study published in the Journal of Medical Entomology found that 98 percent of lice in the United States are now resistant to the pesticides the products use. These immune lice are often referred to as “super lice,” and families often try and fail multiple times to get lice out of their lives.

The AirAllé device kills lice and super lice without the use of pesticides or chemicals. Lice Clinics of America also offers a complete line of pesticide-free home treatment and prevention products.
