DEERFIELD, ILL., May 19, 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 on Chicago's North Shore no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.
Lice Clinics of America North Shore 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.
Clinic owners Jill Leshtz and Jennifer Riback are bringing the AirAllé treatment to the area because it offers a better choice for parents. "There are lots of nitpickers out there who simply comb the nits and bugs out of the hair. This process requires extensive work at home and follow up and you are left with the possibility that a single nit is left in the hair which would allow the lice cycle to begin all over again," Jennifer said. "We use an FDA-cleared medical device which dehydrates and kills the nits and bugs in a single treatment."
"We received a frantic call from a mother who found her child had lice just hours before a major family event with hundreds of guests attending." Jill said. "We were able to treat the entire family and eradicate the lice within hours. They were able celebrate with their family and friends stress-free!"
Lice Clinics of America – North Shore is located at 400 Lake Cook Road, Suite 201 in Deerfield. The clinic is open seven days per week by appointment. The AirAllé treatment takes about 60-90 minutes, and comes with a 30-day guarantee when all family members are treated or screened for head lice.
The North Shore 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.
