Head lice infamously cause stress, disgust and embarrassment for millions of moms whose kids get infested each year. But thanks to the opening of a new Lice Clinics of America clinic, moms in Connecticut no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.
Lice Clinics of America – Orange (www.lcaconnecticut.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 opened by general manager Melissa Parker. “Since opening our first Connecticut clinic in West Hartford in December of 2015, we’ve treated families from all over Connecticut and Massachusetts, some traveling up to two hours to visit us,” Melissa said. “With the opening of our Orange location, we will be even more accessible to Connecticut families.”
“I been a pediatric nurse in an acute hospital setting for more than 10 years, and I truly enjoy interacting with patients on a day to day basis,” Melissa said. “Helping others and having an impact on people’s lives is such a satisfying responsibility and managing Lice Clinics Of America clinics gives me a chance to do that every day.”
Lice Clinics of America – Orange is located at 109 Boston Post Road. The clinic is open seven days per week by appointment. AirAllé treatments take about 90 minutes and come with a 30-day guarantee when all family members are treated or screened for head lice.
The Orange clinic is one of 100 U.S. clinics in the Lice Clinics of America network. With clinics in more than 20 countries, Lice Clinics of America 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.
