Lice? The Lice Girls can help with that

SILVERDALE — Head lice cause stress and embarrassment for millions of parents whose children get infested each year. Thanks to the relocation of a Lice Clinics of America clinic, parents in Kitsap and Pierce have an option to treating the icky bugs themselves.

Lice Girls, a Lice Clinics of America clinic, 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 a patented, controlled heated air system.

Clinic owners Lisa and Nathan Hagman will move their clinic from Bainbridge Island to 9576 Ridgetop Blvd., Suite L103, Silverdale, this summer. They also offer products for at-home prevention and treatment at Central Market in Poulsbo, and Red Apple Market on Kitsap Way.

“While stationed overseas with the military in Italy, our family struggled for nearly five months with head lice. It was the typical nightmare story,” Lisa said. “More recently, my kids got lice again a week before I was scheduled for major surgery, and the kids were to stay with family. With no time to spare, we found Lice Clinics of America and were lice-free in an hour. The AirAllé changes lives.”

The clinic is open by appointment only. The AirAllé treatment takes a little over an hour and comes with a 30-day guarantee when all family members have been treated or checked by staff.

The Kitsap clinic is one of more than 150 U.S. clinics in the Lice Clinics of America network.
