ROCKVILLE, Md., May 5, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Head lice infamously cause stress, disgust and embarrassment for millions of parents whose kids get infested each year. But thanks to the opening of a new Lice Clinics of America clinic, parents in Montgomery County, Maryland 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.
David and Liz Weirshousky opened the clinic after experiencing the stress and difficulty of treating lice in their own family. "We spent hours and several hundred dollars with a local nitpicker only to be told as we were leaving that we needed to comb every single day for the next 3 weeks," Liz said. "I broke down crying. I thought I was paying to have the problem totally taken care of - not just someone to get us started. I had to bring a better way to deal with head lice to our area!"
She discovered that better way with the AirAllé medical device. "With the AirAllé device we kill the lice and eggs with just one treatment," Liz said. "There is no more nightly combing. No need to use pesticides on your head. You walk out of our clinic with the peace of mind you need - knowing you are finished with head lice. And we are so sure of what we do it is guaranteed for 30 days!"
Lice Clinics of America – Rockville is locatedat 12222 Rockville Pike. The clinic is open seven days per week by appointment. AirAllé treatments there take about 90 minutes, and come with a 30-day guarantee when all family members are treated or screened for head lice.
The Rockville clinic is one of 100 U.S. clinics in the Lice Clinics of America network.
With clinics in more than 20 countries, 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.
