NORWOOD, Mass., Oct. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Head lice infamously cause stress, disgust and embarrassment for millions of moms whose kids get infested each year. But thanks to the October opening of Lice Clinics of America – Norwood, moms in the 495 area of Massachusetts no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.
Lice Clinics of America – Norwood 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.
The clinic is owned by Brenda Howard. Howard noticed that people are increasingly getting professional lice treatments because they find the traditional treatment pesticides are not as effective as they once were, not to mention the amount of time it takes for parents to do a protracted comb-out regimen on their kids.
“People assume treating head lice is easy,” said Howard. “But when you get right down to it, it is a real hassle. And parents can’t understand why the lice shampoos aren’t working. It’s because they have been overused and the lice have developed resistance to them.”
Lice Clinics of America – Norwood is located at 824 Providence Highway, Rt 1 in Norwood. The clinic is open by appointment only. AirAllé treatments there take about an hour, and come with a 30-day guarantee.
The Norwood clinic is one of 90 U.S. clinics in the Lice Clinics of America network.
With 90 U.S. clinics and 105 international clinics, 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.
