Mom of 5 Turns Lice Nightmare into Business with Lice Clinics of America® Spring Grove Clinic

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

Spring Grove, Illinois

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 Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin no longer have to worry about treating the icky bugs themselves.

For Erin Hawn, a case of head lice with her fifth child was a life-changing experience. “My husband and I have four girls and one boy, and when my fifth child was three weeks old, all of us girls had head lice,” she said. “After unsuccessfully battling at home, we stumbled upon Lice Clinics of America and were all lice-free in hours. What a relief!”

“My husband had always wanted to start a business,” Erin said. “We knew this was it. Six months later we opened our first clinic in Vernon Hills.” The Vernon Hills clinic has been so successful that the couple is opening a second one in Spring Grove.

Lice Clinics of America is the exclusive provider of lice treatment using the FDA-cleared Class I AirAllé® medical device. clinically proven to kill live lice and more than 99 percent of eggs (nits) using carefully controlled warm air to dehydrate the lice and eggs.
