BIRMINGHAM, Ala., June 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jody Gann and Charlie Pohlmann, co-owners of newly launched Lice Clinics of America–Birmingham, knew they wanted to serve the people of Alabama in some capacity, but they weren't sure how. Then, it hit them. Literally.
"My family 'caught the bug' and we were treated at the only place in town," Pohlmann said. "When I called Jody about my idea to offer a more convenient and cost-effective head lice treatment option, he laughed me off the phone… until his family became infected one month later. Then he was in! After a lot of research we found the AirAllé device and the rest is history."
Lice Clinics of America–Birmingham, which celebrated its grand opening in February, is a dedicated treatment center with the sole purpose of ridding families of head lice using the all-natural, FDA-cleared AirAllé medical device. The device utilizes warm air to gently dehydrate and kill head lice and their eggs in one treatment, effectively eliminating the need for chemical shampoos, medications, and messy home remedies. Most people are lice free within just one hour.
The AirAllé device also serves as an answer to the growing problem of chemical lice resistance in the U.S. and Canada. After decades of overusing over-the-counter and prescription shampoos and medications, lice have evolved to become unresponsive to these treatments.
Most importantly, Gann and Pohlmann say their method is highly effective in killing lice and their eggs, and their treatment is easy, quick and comfortable. "We have a quality, scientifically-proven product that gives us an advantage our competitors simply cannot match. We offer the only FDA-cleared lice treatment device in Birmingham."
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), an estimated 6 to 12 million infestations occur each year in the U.S. among children 3 to 11 years of age. Some studies suggest that girls get head lice more often than boys, probably due to more frequent head-to-head contact.
