Lice Clinics of America® Phoenix Employee Opens Clinic of His Own in Tucson

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

Tucson, Arizona

Working at Lice Clinics of America treatment centers in Phoenix and Chandler, Erich Deines saw the power of the clinics’ AirAllé® medical device first hand.

“I saw how effective the treatment is and how happy and relieved families are to leave our clinics lice-free in an hour or so,” Erich said. “Many had been struggling with head lice for months because traditional treatments are no longer effective.”

Erich was so impressed that he is opening a new Lice Clinics of America clinic in Tuscon.

The battle against head lice has gotten more difficult in recent years as head lice have become immune to the chemical pesticides in the most popular lice products. The most recent study found that so-called “Super Lice” comprise 98 percent of head lice in most states.

Lice Clinics of America is the exclusive provider of lice treatment using the AirAllé medical device, an FDA-cleared Class I medical device clinically proven to kill live lice and more than 99 percent of eggs (nits) using carefully controlled warm air to dehydrate the lice and eggs. Most treatments take about an hour, and the service is guaranteed to be effective. The treatment doesn’t rely on chemicals and is just as effective against pesticide-resistant lice.

The AirAllé device makes tackling head lice much easier, removing much of the stress and uncertainty of traditional products. “With the AirAllé device, head lice are not as scary as everyone thinks,” Erich said. “People have called me panicked many times, with black bags in the garage for weeks, and kids quarantined to their rooms. We offer an easy solution to a not so scary problem.”

Managing the clinic will be Rachael Dickison, a former medical assistant with a degree in Healthcare Administration.

Lice Clinics of America – Tucson is located at 5300 E. Erickson Drive #104. The clinic is open seven days per week by appointment. The AirAllé device treatment comes with a 30-day guarantee when all family members are treated or screened for head lice.

The new clinic is one of more than 350 clinics in the Lice Clinics of America network worldwide. With clinics in more than 33 countries, Lice Clinics of America ( is the largest network of professional head-lice-treatment centers in the world. Lice Clinics of America and AirAllé ( are brands owned by Larada Sciences, Inc.
