Lice Clinics of America Opens New Treatment Center in Lexington

LEXINGTON, Ky., June 15, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Head lice infamously 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 – Lexington, moms in the Lexington area no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.

Lice Clinics of America – Lexington, which officially opened for business on Monday, June 15, 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 Judy Hayden, a licensed cosmetologist who resides in Lexington. Hayden said she is very excited to be able to offer AirAllé treatments to families in central Kentucky.

"I wish there had been a clinic like this when my kids got head lice a couple of years ago," said Hayden, who has four children. "I just went into panic mode and bought any over-the-counter remedies I could find. I even sprayed down our furniture, beds and pillows with pesticides. Crazy, huh?"

Hayden said she hopes her clinic, in addition to doing treatments, will be a place to provide accurate information about lice. She wants to calm parents down by dispelling a lot of myths about lice, including how they spread, who gets infested, and what treatments work or don't work.

Lice Clinics of America – Lexington is located at 1795 Alysheba Way #7204 in Lexington. 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 Lexington 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.
