Lice Clinics of America Opens New Treatment Center in Corpus Christi

INGLESIDE, Texas, June 18, 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 Monkey Business Lice Removal, moms in the Corpus Christi area no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.

Monkey Business Lice Removal, 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 Cindi Lamas, who was looking for a new career after 25 years as a dental hygienist. Lamas learned about Lice Clinics of America after she struggled for months to get rid of her child's lice. It took driving her daughter to the nearest clinic—three and a half hours away—to successfully cure the infestation with an AirAllé treatment.

"There seems to be a constant lice outbreak in this area," said Lamas. "I'm thrilled that I can now offer this terrific service here, so people don't have to drive so far to get a professional treatment."

Lamas, who opened the doors to her clinic in April, said she takes great satisfaction in helping parents and children deal with such a terrible problem. In one case, she treated a 19-year-old girl who had suffered from head lice for years. After the treatment, the girl was finally able to get a haircut for the first time in years.

Monkey Business Lice Removal is located at 2817 Main St. in Ingleside. The clinic is open by appointment only at this time. AirAllé treatments there take about an hour, and come with a 30-day guarantee.

The 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.
