There are 3 primary stages of the lice life cycle that occur over a 33-35 day period.
Head Lice Life Cycle
Lice are equal opportunity parasites. They do not know or care about your age, ethnicity, gender, income, time of the year, what you do for a living or if you have never had lice before or if you just had it last month, or how long you have had lice in your hair. All they care is that you have a warm scalp for them to feed on and for their eggs to nest on.
Nymphs to Adult
Adult lice are the size of a sesame seed, have six legs, and don’t jump, hop, or fly.
Lice on a Dime
Lice only crawl from hair strand to hair strand and need the warmth of the human scalp to survive by sucking human blood from the scalp ever 2-3 hours. A female louse lives about 30 days and during that time she will lay up to 150 eggs within a 2 week period. The louse secretes a glue like substance that allows the lice egg to be glue to the hair.

Our Los Alamitos and Torrance clinics are the exclusive regional providers of the AirAllé Medical Device.
Lice and their eggs are primarily composed of water. This medical device kills lice and eggs (nits) by dehydrating the lice and their eggs through a combination of temperature, airflow, time, and technique.
The lice on the left is a live, viable egg before treatment while the egg on the right is a dead, dehydrated egg after treatment.
Before and After an AirAllé Treatment
We follow a proven, 3 step process and rely on the the AirAlle medical device operated by our certified head lice technicians. After our 30 minute pattern has been completed with the medical device, the eggs are now dead, dehydrated and will not hatch. Our certified head lice technician will then provide a comprehensive comb-out of the dehydrated eggs.
