- March 15, 2011 - CASTRO VALLEY, Calif. --
San Francisco, California – Lice Control™ (http://www.lice-
, a Bay Area-based head lice treatment service, has partnered with Nitless Noggins to bring the new LouseBuster™
head lice removal device to Santa Cruz, Monterey County, Morgan Hill, and Gilroy families. As the exclusive distributor of the revolutionary new head lice treatment technology for all of Northern California, Lice Control offers willing entrepreneurs the technology, training, and support to get started providing the most effective head lice treatment services available.
In response to multiple inquiries from interested lice removal services, Lice Control launched their LouseBuster™
Device Lease Program earlier this year in the Bay Area and surrounding communities. Through the lease program, LouseBuster™
lessees have the opportunity to lease the device and receive training and support from Lice Control, the leader in the lice treatment business. Previous to the Lice Control LouseBuster™
Lease Program, the device was only available to distributors and certified operators. As a result of growing demand following device launch in the spring of 2010, Lice Control has created an opportunity for current head lice treatment providers and other interested parties to begin using the new technology in their own businesses.
Device is really revolutionizing the lice treatment industry,” says Ray Ruiz, Owner and Operator of Lice Control. Mr Ruiz continues, “The device has created a real buzz in the industry since its launch last spring. Since that time, we’ve had a lot of interest from other lice treatment services and people looking for a startup business opportunity. So much so in fact that we decided to make the device available through our new lease program.” The device can rid an infected person in one 30 minute treatment without any harsh chemicals or pesticides, saving customers time and money and allowing lice treatment providers to serve more customers. Ruiz adds, “We were a little surprised by all the inquiries. But when you consider that this is the first all-natural, safe, non-toxic technology, and it’s also so fast, I guess it makes sense that people want to be a part of it.”
The FDA-cleared LouseBuster (http://www.lice-control.com/lousebuster-lice-control/
) device delivers carefully controlled heated air directly to dry, untangled hair, at a temperature cooler than most hair-dryers and at a much higher flow rate. The revolutionary LouseBuster™
device technology allows head lice treatment services the ability to treat an infestation in a single 30 minute treatment, resulting in a lower cost to clients and increased efficiency for providers. The LouseBuster technology is based on breakthrough research conducted by evolutionary parasitologist Dr. Dale Clayton and students at the University of Utah. The initial research was published in November, 2006 in the peer-reviewed journal Pediatrics. The device has been FDA-cleared and CE marked.
Primarily found in school-aged children three to 11 years old, lice infestation is a problem that affects millions of people worldwide each year. Pediculosis, or head lice infestation, often flies under the radar of parents until it hits home, leaving busy families with kids sent home from school and a range of confusing and potentially unhealthful treatment options to research. Shampoos, and other over the counter products, often contain chemical-based pediculicides that have been shown to have adverse health effects in some children. Manual processes, while safe and chemical-free, can be expensive, often requiring between two and four appointments to ensure all bugs and eggs are completely removed.
Lice Control (http://www.lice-control.com
) is a Northern California-based head lice removal service that has been helping families get rid of lice for over 10 years. Owner/Operators Ray & Susan Ruiz started Lice Control in the Sacramento area to provide local families with a safe and effective treatment option for head lice infestation.
