WARWICK, R.I., 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 Clinics of America – Warwick RI, moms in Rhode Island no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.
Lice Clinics of America – Warwick RI 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 Jeremy Pavao, a lifelong resident of Rhode Island. Pavao discovered Lice Clinics of America when his daughter got infested with lice. Despite his wife's best efforts, they were not able to successfully treat it at home, so they traveled to a clinic in Massachusetts for an AirAllé treatment.
"We had the most relaxing and enjoyable experience at the clinic," said Pavao. "I wanted my fellow Rhode Islanders to have the same experience we did, so we opened up a clinic here."
Pavao said every person he has talked to in Rhode Island has either dealt with—or known someone with—head lice in the past year.
Lice Clinics of America – Warwick RI is located at 2980 West Shore Road Suite 2 in Warwick. Clinic hours are by appointment only. AirAllé treatments there take about an hour, and come with a 30-day guarantee.
Pavao's clinic is one of 75 U.S. clinics in the Lice Clinics of America network, and the only clinic of its kind in Rhode Island.
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.
