AirAllé® Medical Device

Our Los Alamitos and Torrance Clinics are the exclusive regional operators of the AirAllé® (pronounced air-a-lay), an FDA-cleared medical device that kills head lice and 99%+ of lice eggs in a single, one-hour treatment.

Your kids just came home with head lice? Don’t panic. We can help! Savvy parents know that getting rid of lice eggs is the hardest part of an effective lice treatment. That’s why they love the AirAllé® device.

  • Is an FDA-cleared medical device
  • Is kid-friendly and relaxing on the scalp
  • Kills 99.2 percent of nits (lice eggs) and lice
  • Dehydrates lice and eggs without pesticides
  • One hour, single treatment, no follow-up appointment is needed
  • Used by head lice-removal professionals around the world
  • Provides a fast and safe head lice treatment that is highly effective

This FDA-cleared medical device kills lice and their eggs through controlled heated air and is an alternative to treating lice with pesticides, suffocation products, herbal lice remedies, or lice combs. AirAllé® was invented by scientists at the University of Utah and it uses a specific technique that combines temperature and airflow for 30 minutes to kill lice and eggs through dehydration.

Lice and their eggs are primarily composed of water so the controlled air sucks the water out of the lice and their eggs.  The lice on the left is a microscopic view of a lice treated by the device that is now dead, dehydrated, and no longer viable. The lice on the right is a live, viable lice that was not treated by the device.

A Little More about (Yikes!) Lice...


There is nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about!  Lice have been around for over 8,000 years and you get head lice from another person.

Lice don’t hop, jump, or fly-they have 6 legs and they only crawl.

Microscopic view of a louse

Head-to-head contact is the easiest way that lice is spread. This allows the adult lice to easily  grab on to another hair strand (think selfies, hugging, and sleeping next to each other).

Lice do not care about gender, age, ethnicity, day of the week, time of the year, personal hygiene, income, what you do for a living, if you have had lice before or if you have never had head lice before.  All lice care about is that you have a strand of hair and a warm scalp for them to live and feed on.

In today’s world of selfies, constant head-to-head contact, and over-the-counter products that no longer work, lice is much more common these days in children of all ages. Every day we treat children of all ages.  Just about every school will have a lice outbreak during the year. We have now treated children from over 850 different schools.

1 in 20 U.S. children (6-12 million) get head lice each year!

Based on head screenings that our clinics have done over the past 3+ years, mom’s will get head lice about 80% of the time when their children have lice.

Just half of the head lice infestations we treat are school-age children. The other half of people we treat are parents and older siblings.

We treat lots of moms, dads, grandparents and yes-dads!

Had it with over-the-counter products that do not work?

Lice have mutated over the years and are now resistant to the chemicals in over-the-counter shampoos in at least 48 states (including California).

What Are Super Lice?

What You Need to Know About Super Lice In California

Combing out lice and their eggs yourself can work but it is very frustrating and stressful.  It takes patience, time, and accuracy.  Even if you are able to comb out your own children, combing out your own hair is almost impossible because the eggs live behind the scalp and the nape of the neck.

An adult lice is the size of a sesame seed and can be a challenge to see or feel. Itching is often a sign of lice. About 40% of people are allergic to the saliva of lice which causes itching but that means 60% of people do not itch when they have lice.

Size of lice compared to a dime

Savvy parents know that getting rid of the lice eggs (nits) is the biggest challenge to ending a head lice infestation. Lice eggs are particularly challenging to see for the human eye because they are so small. They are the size of a grain of sand and they do not move. You are truly looking for a needle in a haystack.

The adult lice secretes a glue like sticky substance so the lice eggs are glued to the hair strand, which is why the eggs are often called nits. The lice egg has a protective shell that outside product simply cannot penetrate.

An adult lice lays up to 6 eggs per day for three weeks. All lice eggs have to hatch within about 5-7 days.   If you miss one single egg,the infestation can last weeks, months, and even years.

The Value of our Service

No one wants to get head lice and it never happens at a good time.

So it is a balance between trying to treat it yourself, your time, money, stress with your children as they yell and scream, missing school, missing work, putting harsh chemicals in your hair that do not work, trying to comb out your own hair, versus coming to us having peace of mind knowing your problem will be solved in about 1 hour and with our optional 30 day lice free guarantee.

Many call us an emergency room for lice because we are open 7 days a week and take same day appointments every day.

We exist to turn what could be a very stressful event in your life into a pleasant and extraordinary customer service experience so you can get your kids back to school and you can get back to work today lice free and stress free!

We can end your lice infestation today!

“Very professional place to come for your lice problems. We had spent over 4 weeks trying to treat this ourselves with Rid and Nix and my kids still had it.  What we liked was they got us in the same day, they are very clean, they explain and answer all of your concerns about lice, and never once make you feel like a bad parent.  I would recommend this place to anyone who wants an effective and fast way to get rid of lice.”
