Lice Clinics of America – Oklahoma City Expands Footprint to Norman

Clinic provides guaranteed, one-and-done lice treatments using FDA-cleared medical device

Norman, Oklahoma

As a salon owner, Amanda Westerman is aware of the problem families have with head lice, but things got serious when she was confronted by the pests in her own family. “After struggling with head lice and discovering that traditional products are no longer effective, I found out about Lice Clinics of America® and the AirAllé® medical device on Facebook,” she said. “A device that is guaranteed to kill head lice and eggs in a single treatment was a such a relief. I opened my first clinic in Oklahoma City in April.”

Now Amanda is opening Lice Clinics of America – Norman (https://www.liceclinicsoklahomacity.com) to provide screening, diagnosis and treatment options for people infested with head lice. The clinic is staffed by certified operators of the AirAllé FDA-cleared medical device, clinically shown to kill live lice and more than 99 percent of eggs (nits) using heated air. Most treatments take about an hour and are guaranteed to be effective.

Many parents like Amanda try and fail to treat head lice with traditional products because head lice have become immune to the chemical pesticides in the most popular products. The most recent study in the Journal of Medical Entomology found that so-called “Super Lice” comprise 98 percent of head lice in most U.S. states. The pesticides used in lice products have also been linked to developmental and behavioral problems in children.

“At my salon, I hear horror stories from other moms trying and failing to rid their families of head lice,” Amanda said. “When they learn that they can leave our clinic lice-free after about an hour, they are thrilled.”

The AirAllé medical device is equally effective against “super lice” because it doesn’t rely on pesticides. The device has treated more than 400,000 cases of head lice worldwide with a success rate better than 99 percent.

Lice Clinics of America – Norman is located at 1215 Crossroads Blvd, Suite 202. The clinic is open seven days per week by appointment. The AirAllé treatment comes with a 30-day guarantee when all family members are treated or screened for head lice.

With more than 350 clinics in 36 countries, Lice Clinics of America (www.LiceClinicsOfAmerica.com) is the largest network of professional head lice treatment centers in the world. Lice Clinics of America and AirAllé (www.airalle.com) are brands owned by Larada Sciences™, Inc., which is headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah.
