TUPELO, Miss., Feb. 3, 2016 (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 a new Lice Clinics of America clinic, moms in the Tupelo area no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.
Lice Clinics of America 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.
Marty Brown, a resident of Tupelo, owns the clinic. Marty was visiting a friend in Atlanta when she discovered that two of her children had lice. She found a Lice Clinics of America affiliate in Atlanta, and the experience was so positive that she and her mother, a retired school nurse, opened a clinic in Tupelo.
"Our treatment in Atlanta was a life saver—safe, effective and fast," said Brown. "But we live in Northern Mississippi. I realized that no one in our state offered this service, and it meets a tremendous need."
Lice Clinics of America is located at 1733 A McCullough Blvd. in Tupelo. 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 Tupelo clinic is one of 90 U.S. clinics in the Lice Clinics of America network.
With 90 U.S. clinics and 80 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.
