Lice Clinics of America Opens New Treatment Center in South Charlotte to Treat Super Lice

Clinic provides guaranteed, one-and-done lice treatments using FDA-cleared medical device

South Charlotte, N.C., Oct. 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Super lice—head lice that have developed resistance to over-the-counter lice products— infestations are up 70 percent in the Charlotte area, according to the owners the Lice Clinics of America lice treatment center in South Charlotte.

Lice Clinics of America – South Charlotte (http://liceclinicssouthcharlotte.com) provides screening, diagnosis and treatment options for people infested with head lice. Lice Clinics of America is a global company with more than 300 urgent-care clinics in 34 countries. The South Charlotte clinic is staffed by certified operators of the AirAllé device, an FDA-cleared medical device invented at the University of Utah that kills head lice and lice eggs using just heated air.

The South Charlotte Clinic is managed by Dena Black and Gil Ferrell, who saw firsthand the impact lice have on children when their niece contracted head lice. The family spent hundreds of dollars at a local lice removal business that required multiple repeat visits as well as over-the-counter products that were ineffective.
“We’re excited about offering this service to our community,” said Dena. “We have an FDA-cleared, clinically proven solution that uses no harmful chemicals and is guaranteed to rid people of on the spot.”

The clinic opened on October 2. “We had a young girl come in who had lice for three months,” Dena said. “After trying many products that didn’t work, her mother traveled 100 miles to our clinic. They left lice-free that day.”

The South Charlotte clinic is located at 3042 Senna Drive, Suite C in Matthews and is open seven days per week by appointment. AirAllé treatments take about an hour, and come with a 30-day guarantee when all family members are treated or screened for head lice.
