TORRANCE, CA--(Marketwired - October 11, 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 the South Bay no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.
Lice Clinics of America - South Bay (http://www.liceclinicssouthbay.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 for owner Marla Weiss. "We opened up our first clinic in Los Alamitos in August 2015 and have successfully treated more than 3,000 families representing 65 different cities and over 350 different schools," Marla said. "We have a 99.4 percent success rate in our treatments. We have had high demand from families living in the South Bay Area and so opening up a second clinic to serve that region was a natural next step."
With a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. in nursing and 20 years of medical experience, Marla is excited to have a medical solution to a medical problem. "I felt that there had to be more of a medial approach to treat head lice versus manually putting chemicals in your family's hair," she said. "My research led me to the AirAllé device and I knew right away this was exactly what I was looking for. A medical approach to treating head lice that does not use any chemicals, takes about 1 hour, and solves the problem."
Lice Clinics of America - South Bay is located at 2050 Artesia Blvd., Suite 103 in Torrance. 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 Southbay clinic is one of more than 110 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.
