Tyler, Texas,Nov. 07, 2017(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Head lice infamously cause stress, disgust and embarrassment for millions of parents whose kids get infested each year. Just in time for Thanksgiving, parents in Tyler no longer have to worry about treating the bugs themselves thanks to the opening of a new clinic, Lice Clinics of America.
Lice Clinics of America – Tyler (http://www.liceclinicseasttexas.com) 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.
This is the second clinic of owners Matt and Heather Smith, who opened their first clinic in Lufkin last year.
A new law in Texas requires schools to notify all students in a classroom where a child has been found to have lice. “With the new Texas state law causing more families to seek treatment, it will be a huge help for parents to have a place to go for help and find a safe, fast, effective solution.”
Matt and Heather are out to change the way people think about and treat head lice. “I wish people would realize that getting head lice does not mean you are dirty,” Heather said. “Lice do not discriminate, they actually like clean hair.” Heather has been a hair stylist for more than 24 years and has owned and operated her own salon for 20 years.
The couple has partnered with children’s advocacy groups to offer free or subsidized treatment for families that cannot afford the service.
The Tyler clinic is located at 2210 Three Lakes Parkway, Suite 145, and is open seven days per week by appointment. AirAllé treatments take about an hour, and come with a 14-day guarantee when all family members are treated or screened for head lice.
With more than 300 clinics in 34 countries, Lice Clinics of America (www.LiceClinicsOfAmerica.com) is the largest network of professional head-lice-treatment centers in the world. Lice Clinics of America and AirAllé (www.airalle.com) are brands owned by Larada Sciences, Inc., which is headquartered in Murray, Utah.
