GLENWOOD CITY, Wis., June 12, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Head lice famously cause stress, disgust and embarrassment for millions of moms whose kids get infested each year. But thanks to the opening of Lice Avengers, moms in Western Wisconsin no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.
Lice Avengers, a preferred provider in the Lice Clinics of America network, provides screening, diagnosis and treatment options for people infested with head lice. The clinic is staffed by certified operators of the AirAllé device, an FDA-cleared medical device that kills head lice and lice eggs using just heated air.
The clinic is owned by Wisconsin residents Tanya and Chris O'Brien. They decided to open the clinic after one of their children got head lice and they had to drive to another state to find an AirAllé treatment.
"There are very few resources in this area to help with this horrible problem," said Tanya, a registered nurse who has seen many lice infestations as a school nurse and camp nurse. "Trying to treat head lice at home is extremely frustrating and stressful. Most people aren't successful at it the first time around. They don't realize the products they are using don't kill the lice eggs. So for us to be able to provide a one-time, guaranteed, professional treatment in this area is something we are very excited about."
Lice Avengers is located at 127 E. Oak St. in Glenwood City. The clinic is open seven days a week by appointment only. AirAllé treatments there take about an hour, and come with a 30-day guarantee.
The Glenwood City clinic is one of 75 U.S. clinics in the Lice Clinics of America network.
With 75 U.S. clinics and 85 international clinics, 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.
