Lice Clinics of America Opens New Treatment Center in Fort Wayne

FORT WAYNE, Ind., June 17, 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 – Fort Wayne, moms in the Fort Wayne area no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.

Lice Clinics of America – Fort Wayne, which celebrated its grand opening on June 3, 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 Michele Bundrant, Kate Lowry and Sarah Butler, three moms from Indianapolis who learned first-hand how frustrating it is to try to remove lice at home. One of the owners was not able to successfully treat her child's lice infestation until getting a professional AirAllé treatment. The child was sent home from school. Her mom then spent time and money using at-home treatment products that did not work at all.

"People assume treating head lice is easy," said Bundrant. "But when you get right down to it, it is a real hassle. And parents can't understand why the lice shampoos aren't working. It's because they have been overused and the lice have developed resistance to them."

Lice Clinics of America – Fort Wayne is located at 7317 W. Jefferson Blvd. in Fort Wayne. 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 Fort Wayne 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.
