LusKliniken Sverige AB Opens First Treatment Center in Taby, Sweden

Clinic Provides Non-Toxic, Guaranteed, One-and-done, Head-Lice-Removal Treatments

TABY, SWEDEN--(Marketwired - May 31, 2016) - Head lice infamously cause stress, disgust and embarrassment for millions of moms whose kids get infested each year. But thanks to the opening of LusKliniken, moms in the Stockholm area no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.

LusKliniken Sverige AB, a preferred provider clinic of Lice Clinics of America provides screening, diagnosis and treatment options for children and adults infested with head lice. The clinic is staffed by certified operators of the AirAllé device, an FDA-cleared and CE-approved medical device that kills head lice and lice eggs using just heated air.

The clinic is owned by Sandrine Voorhorst, a resident of Täby, Sweden. Sandrine noticed that parents are increasingly struggling to treat head-lice infestations. Unfortunately parents most commonly apply over-the-counter treatment pesticides on their kids' heads in the hope to shorten the time spent getting rid of the lice infestation. Besides exposing kids to these chemicals, these treatment pesticides have lost effectiveness because lice have developed resistance against them.

Combing out lice with a lice comb can be effective, yet this requires experience, skills and dedication. The combing process takes a lot of time, is very stressful and often does not remove all the lice and nits, which means the infestation continues.

"At LusKliniken we believe it's not about lice, it's about kids," said Sandrine. "Our non-toxic, single head-lice-removal treatment kills both the lice and their eggs. We are so confident about the effectiveness of our full treatment that we actually guarantee the result. Depending on the type of hair, the treatment takes between 90 and 120 minutes."

"We are so excited to be expanding into Sweden and have Sandrine and LusKliniken Sverige AB join our worldwide network," said Adam Ward, chief operations officer of Larada Sciences, which owns the Lice Clinics of America brand. "Parents and kids are so relieved when they get treated in our clinics. I'm sure the families in Stockholm and surrounding areas will get a great service from Sandrine."

LusKliniken Sverige AB is located at Hörnåkersvägen 12 in Täby. The clinic is open seven days a week by appointment only.

LusKliniken Sverige AB is one of more than 100 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.
