The face of lice treatment has changed. With the growing concern of using harsh pesticides and the rise of super lice, the way we deal with these pests are not the same as it was before.
What are super lice?
We are in the age of super lice: lice that are nearly unaffected by traditional methods of treatment, such as pesticides and homeopathic solutions. After years of treating lice this way, they have adapted immunity to these practices. That’s why Dr. Dale Clayton spent years developing the AirAlle technology, which is currently the most effective method for getting rid of lice.
What is the AirAlle system?
The AirAlle system is a Health Canada cleared device that offers safe and effective treatment of lice by using hot air. This unique piece of equipment harnesses the power of hot air to effectively dry, dehydrate, and kill lice and their eggs. Since lice are very small, their ability to retain water is challenging, making the dehydrating process quick and effective. This process takes about an hour, with a success rate of about 99%. This nearly eliminates the chance of needing retreatment, unlike other traditional methods. And without needing pesticides, the AirAlle system remains one of the safest ways of killing lice on the market.
What do lice say about me?
The dream of LCC Surrey is to lessen the stigma around lice and those who have struggled with infestations. It is now well known that lice are not due to poor or dirty living conditions. Even the cleanest and tidiest people are subject to hosting an infestation. And, what’s more, kids are not the only ones vulnerable to lice. Anyone can be a host! That being said, we are in a better state of understanding. Therefore, we are equipped to deal with the problem head-on and with research and increasing knowledge, we have safe and effective treatments that don’t put us and our kids in jeopardy for using them.
How can I prevent lice?
There are a bunch of ways you can work to keep yourself and your family lice free. By being diligent and:
- avoiding head-to-head contact
- avoiding sharing hats and scarves, and;
- keeping your hair up
- check for lice with a find-toothed comb
You can easily help yourself stay safe from lice. We are more aware of how lice spread and if you follow these steps, you can keep you and your family safe from an infestation. However, even the most steadfast meticulous person can wind up with a lice problem like everyone else.
