SPRINGFIELD, Ill., April 5, 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 Springfield, Illinois and the surrounding 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.
Tara Hays, a schoolteacher in nearby Chatham, decided to open a clinic when she learned of the AirAllé device. "As a person who had endured and experienced the stress associated with traditional lice treatment methods, I knew it was revolutionary," Tara said.
"I have been a teacher for twelve years," she said, "I have witnessed how the education and social lives of children dealing with infestations are affected. Lice Clinics of America represents a modern, scientific solution to many of these problems."
Lice Clinics of America – Springfield is locatedat 2509 W. Iles Avenue – Suite 102. The clinic is open seven days a week by appointment only. Full AirAllé treatments offered at the clinic take 1 to 2 hours and have a 100 percent, 21 day guarantee, as long as everyone in the family is screened and treated when necessary.
The Springfield 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.
