ENCINITAS, Calif., Nov. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- This year Common Core isn't the only thing parents will be frustrated with after school. With no-nit policies in effect and cases of head lice on the rise everywhere, today's parents, and their children, are likely to be fighting a beast of a different — and smaller — kind.
And not just for "that kid," as it may just as well be yours too.
"It doesn't matter how clean your hair is, what your income is, where you live or how often you bathe," says Mercedes Domingo of AirAlle San Diego. "Lice can happen to anyone, anywhere, and in just about any setting."
Cases of head lice are on the rise, and quickly. As treatment-resistant lice continue to breed at astonishing rates, so do the numbers of infestations.
The American Academy of Pediatrics, The Center for Disease Control and the National Association of School Nurses all agree—children with nits, and in some cases, even with live lice, should remain in school—and district policies are following suit.
In response, Domingo offers a novel and safe solution for families in San Diego County. Providing a one hour, pesticide free and painless treatment, Domingo guarantees to get rid of head lice using an innovative device that treats lice with nothing more than heated air.
AirAlle, an FDA-cleared device created by scientists at the University of Utah, works by dehydrating lice and nits by delivering controlled heated air and kills lice and 99.2% of nits (lice eggs) in a single treatment.
"The AirAlle device is very safe," says Domingo, "and with genuine scientifically-based robust and proven results, I can safely speed the process of lice removal for families in our area."
AirAlle treatments, which include thorough comb-outs, take about an hour and include follow-up information for parents for home care and prevention of re-infestation. The team at AirAlle San Diego ensures clients leave happy and with a guarantee to be lice-free.
"I look forward to being of service to my community," says Domingo "parents have enough to worry about already; I hope to help lower their stress and keep kids in classrooms."
Domingo is pleased to have her new treatment center in Encinitas ready and open for business this week. Offering free head checks by appointment through the month of November, AirAlle San Diego is ready to serve families.
