Andrea Florsheim, owner of Lice Clinics of America – Omaha, has faced the perils of super lice first hand, having tried and failed to treat her daughter using traditional lice products and hours of combing over several days. When her daughter got lice a second time, the Wisconsin mom decided to get professional help. Andrea opted for a chemical-free Lice Clinics of America treatment over another nitpicker in the area who offered to spray some homemade solutions on her daughter and try to comb out the lice and eggs. Her daughter was treated, and the family was lice-free in an hour.
Thrilled with her experience, Andrea and her husband David opened a clinic of their own soon after. Today, the couple has four clinics in Wisconsin and have provided nearly 4,000 treatments to families in their community. Now they are taking the fight against super lice to Omaha.
Super lice are head lice that have developed a resistance to the pesticides used in most popular lice products. A 2016 study published in the Journal of Medical Entomology found that 98 percent of head lice in the United States have developed a genetic resistant to pyrethroids, the pesticides used in over-the-counter lice treatment products.
Like the Wisconsin clinics, Lice Clinics of America – Omaha (https://liceclinicsomaha.com/) provides screening, diagnosis, and treatment for people infested with head lice. The clinic is staffed by certified operators of the FDA-cleared AirAllé®, a medical device that kills head lice and lice eggs (nits) using heated air in a single treatment. The treatment takes about an hour and is guaranteed to be effective.
