SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Back-to-school time often means a spike in head-lice outbreaks. Luckily for moms in the Sacramento area, getting that dreaded lice note from school won't be so scary now, thanks to the opening of Lice Clinics of America – Sacramento.
Lice Clinics of America – Sacramento, which opened its doors August 11, 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 Eric Heffel and Larry Shield. Heffel and Shield are two dads with six kids between them. They became so proficient at combing out their own kids' lice infestations over five separate lice outbreaks that they decided to go into business together. They started doing comb-out treatments in clients' homes, but quickly transitioned to opening a clinic under the Lice Clinics of America brand after discovering the revolutionary AirAllé device, and the benefit it represented.
"Some school districts in this area are changing their policies to where they allow kids with lice to stay in school," said Heffel, a registered nurse. "That means there may be a higher likelihood of your kids getting head lice. If they do, don't worry. Just call us. We take calls 24/7. And if we treat you, we guarantee we'll eliminate your lice problem in a single visit, usually within one hour."
Heffel said it is immensely satisfying to make a positive impact on the lives of people dealing with lice, especially those who have suffered the longest.
Lice Clinics of America – Sacramento is located at 9837 Folsom Blvd. in Sacramento. The clinic is open seven days a week from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
The Sacramento clinic is one of 85 U.S. clinics in the Lice Clinics of America network.
With 85 U.S. clinics and 105 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.
