NORTHPORT, Ala., Aug. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Back-to-school time often means a spike in head-lice outbreaks. Luckily for moms in the Tuscaloosa area, getting that dreaded lice note from school won't be so scary now, thanks to the opening of The Lice Clinic.
The Lice Clinic 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 Lara Chandler, a licensed esthetician who also owns a spa in the area. Running her spa business, Chandler always feels good about helping customers with their skin issues and making them feel better about themselves. So helping people overcome lice infestations is a natural fit for her.
"I had a client who tried everything to remove the lice before coming to our clinic," said Chandler. "The little girl was so embarrassed to still have lice that she started crying. I told her jokes during the treatment to make her laugh. I treated her mom too. They came back a week later and I confirmed their infestations were completely gone. They were so happy to be lice-free for the first time all summer."
The Lice Clinic is located at 400 McFarland Blvd., Suite E, in Northport Alabama. The clinic, which is the only professional lice-removal business in the Tuscaloosa area, is open Monday-Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., by appointment only. AirAllé treatments there take about an hour, and come with a 30-day guarantee.
The Tuscaloosa 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.
