Medical Professional Opens Second Colorado Lice Clinics of America Treatment Center to Fight Head Lice Without Pesticides

Pesticides used in traditional head lice no longer work, and have been linked to health problems in children

Longmont, Colorado

With a career in physical therapy and medical sales, Tanya Kensley has always had a passion for helping people. As a mother of two school-age children, she was all too familiar with the challenges of dealing with head lice. The two concerns came together when she opened her first Lice Clinics of America® treatment center in Fort Collins.

“I decided to open my first clinic because I saw that there was a definite need for a cure for head lice that did not involve putting pesticides on our children’s heads,” Tanya said. “I also really love helping families during what can be a very emotional and stressful time.”

Tanya recently opened Lice Clinics of America – Longmont (https://liceclinicsnortherncolorado.com). Like the Fort Collins clinic, Lice Clinics of America – Longmont provides screening, diagnosis and treatment options for people infested with head lice. Staffed by certified operators, Lice Clinics of America is the exclusive provider of head lice treatment using the AirAllé device, a revolutionary solution that uses heated air to dehydrate head lice and eggs. In clinical trials, the AirAllé device was found to kill live lice and more than 99 percent of eggs (nits). Most treatments take about an hour and are guaranteed to be effective.

Head lice have become difficult to treat with traditional products because the lice have become immune to the chemical pesticides that the products use. The most recent study in the Journal of Medical Entomology found that 98 percent of so-called ‘super lice’ in most U.S. states are resistant to their active ingredients. The pesticides used in traditional lice products have also been linked to developmental and behavioral problems in children.

“I want families to know they don’t have to use pesticides to treat head lice,” Tanya said. “Unfortunately, head lice are more prevalent and harder to treat because ‘super lice’ are now found in all parts of the world. It’s important to use a solution like the AirAllé device that is pesticide-free and has been scientifically studied and proven to be effective.”

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 – Longmont is located at 421 21st Ave., Suite 210. The clinic is open seven days a week by appointment. The AirAllé treatment comes with a 14-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.
