ARROWHEAD, AZ–(Marketwired – November 14, 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 Arrowhead no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.
Lice Clinics of America – Arrowhead (http://www.liceclinicsarrowhead.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 dehydration in a single treatment. The 3-Step process is followed by removing any remaining casings in the hair with a thorough comb out while applying an active rinse.
This is the second clinic for owner Kim Pickens. Kim opened one of the Lice Clinics of America’s first clinics in 2012 in Scottsdale, called No Nit Noggins. She and her staff have been Certified AirAllé Medical Device Operators for four years, as well as Certified Shepherd Method Strand-by-Strand Nit Removal Specialists. “We have successfully treated thousands of people in the area,” Kim said. “It is important for people to know that lice are now resistant to the most popular drugstore products, and that the AirAllé medical device is the only option that kills live lice and eggs in a single treatment.”
“I am excited to offer a fast, effective, safe lice treatment that truly helps families solve a very stressful problem,” Kim said. “It’s a medical solution to a medical problem that works every time.”
Lice Clinics of America – Arrowhead is located at 7170 Camino San Xavier Suite D-116 in Glendale. The clinic will be open 7 days per week by appointment and their Grand Opening is November 28, 2016. The Full Service AirAllé treatment takes about 90 minutes, and comes with a 30-day guarantee when all family members are screened for head lice and positive cases are professionally treated. Their website address is www.liceclinicsarrowhead.com and you can even book online!
The Arrowhead 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.
The stress of lice removal can be monumental. First there is the initial, “ick” reaction to tiny insects crawling around yours or a loved one’s head followed by the frantic exploration of how to get rid of the parasite.
There are many treatments to choose from, some more effective than others. And in the Internet-age, there is so much information to sift through it can become overwhelming to determine what treatments to try, and which treatments to ignore.
(PRLEAP.COM) PHOENIX, October 16, 2013 – No Nit Noggins (www.nonitnoggins.com), a specialty lice treatment center, offers an option for in-home lice treatment in Phoenix and Scottsdale. A lice infestation can be horrifying for anyone, but especially for children who have to miss school and might not understand that, though lice are annoying, they are harmless.
“Giving people the option to have their lice treated at home gives them more peace of mind,” said Kim Pickens, owner of No Nit Noggins. “Kids who are treated in their own homes are comfortable and don’t feel as scared as they might if they had to go to an unfamiliar setting to be treated.”
Time was, when you found nits in your child’s hair you had to schlep them down to the doctor’s office for a prescription shampoo and other lengthy, expensive treatment. This always seemed to occur right when you wanted to spend a weekend up in the mountains or go visit Grandma and Grandpa – but suddenly, instead, you had your hands full with tearful, frightened children and time-consuming chores to insure that there would be no encore of Pediculus humanus capitis.
This was about a much fun as going to the Porcupine Petting Farm.
September is Back to School Month. Our children will renew old friendships and make new friends, review past lessons and gain new knowledge. It will truly be an amazing blend of the old and the new for them.
Head lice treatment may be an unfortunate part of your school routine; even the most careful and hygienic households are liable to this pest. But head lice treatments are no longer the long, drawn-out, and expensive process they once were. Modern technology has made these inconvenient guests completely eradicable.
I can’t tell you how much satisfaction my job brings me. To see the relief on mothers faces as I calm them and get rid of the head lice. I’ve been there myself, so I can empathize. Half of my work is reassuring distressed parents that all will be okay.
