MEDFORD, MA--(Marketwired - December 12, 2016) - 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 Medford no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.
Lice Clinics of America -- Medford (http://www.liceclinicsmedford.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.
Lice Clinics of America -- Medford owner and school nurse Timika Hopkins didn't realize how tough it is to treat lice until they came to her family. "Even though I'd dealt with numerous lice outbreaks in the school setting, nothing could prepare me for when I had to deal with it personally," she said. "My background as a school nurse taught me how to screen for it, and how to gently inform parents of it, but never did it teach me how absolutely impossible it could be to get rid of it!"
"I spent a great deal of money and time treating my family with lice products that didn't work," Timika said. "One of us even got hives from the pesticide exposure. This experience pointed me to the AirAllé device, science-based, medically-proven treatment method."
Lice Clinics of America -- Medford is located at 0 Governors Avenue, Suite B3, in Medford. The clinic is open seven days per week by appointment. The AirAllé treatment takes about 90 minutes, and comes with a 30-day guarantee when all family members are treated or screened for head lice.
The Medford clinic is one of more than 230 U.S. clinics in the Lice Clinics of America network.
With clinics in more than 20 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.
