RIDGELAND, Miss., Feb. 10, 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 Central Mississippi 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.
Chris and Christy Smalling started the clinic. When two of their boys came home from a summer trip with lice, they spent hundreds of dollars and a dozen futile home treatments, trying to get rid of the lice for good. Christy learned of an AirAllé clinic in Birmingham after the fact, and sensed a great business opportunity.
"After personally dealing with getting rid of lice as a mother, I knew that the AirAlle' device would be a cost-effective option for anybody trying to get rid of lice," Christy said. "We know that many people will benefit from our services. We have also made sure to provide many treatment options to fit all budgets for our clients."
Lice Clinics of America – Central Mississippi is locatedat 655 Lake Harbour Drive, Suite 400, in Ridgeland. The clinic is open seven days a week by appointment only. AirAllé treatments there take about an hour, and come with a 5-day guarantee.
The Central Mississippi 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.
