Our Los Alamitos and South Bay-Torrance clinics are award-winning, medical based professional head lice removal clinics.  Our proven 3-step treatment process has a 99%+ effective rate in killing both lice and their eggs.

Our AirAllé® Signature Treatment is a one time treatment that takes about 60-90 minutes.  We provide a certificate of treatment to give to your child’s school.  No follow-up appointment is necessary or required. We also provide an optional 30-day lice-free service on all AirAllé® Signature Treatments.  If the person we treated gets head lice for any reason at all within 30 days of our AirAllé® Signature Treatment and you have met the conditions of our optional 30-day lice free service * we will treat that person again for free!

*For your protection, in order to make sure all immediate family members are lice free, all immediate family members living full-time or part-time with the person that we treated must be head screened and/or treated in order to qualify for our optional 30-day lice-free service

“I have been down the lice road before and couldn’t bare to go down it again by myself!  I absolutely loved my experience at Lice Clinics of America Los Alamitos.  It was super clean, the staff was friendly and courteous, and most importantly they took care of the job!  Ironically, my nightmare is over, but my children both said they hope to get lice again just to come back! Thanks for taking care of my family!”

Did you just discover that your child has head lice? Don’t panic. We can end your lice infestation today.

Not interested in putting product with very high chemical content on your children’s hair or your hair?

Had it with pesticide lice treatments that do not work?

The main ingredient in many popular over-the-counter head lice shampoos is a synthetic chemical called permethrin. This toxic ingredient affects the nervous system in insects by causing muscle spasms, paralysis and death.

Permethrin is a neurotoxin that is potentially carcinogenic and can cause the following alarming side effects:

  • Wheezing or coughing
  • Shortness of breath/difficulty breathing
  • Runny or stuffy nose
  • Skin irritation burning
  • Scalp irritation or burning
  • May affect reproductive system
  • Nervous system symptoms such as excitability and convulsions
  • Allergic reaction

Even worse, over-the-counter (OTC) lice treatments that contain permithrin are now widely considered ineffective against head lice.  The most recent research, published in the Journal of Medical Entomology, found that head lice in all 48 continental states have mutated and are now resistant to the chemicals in OTC lice treatment products.

Although some products out there might be able to end the life of live lice some of the time, savvy parents know that getting rid of the lice eggs (nits) is the hardest part of an effective lice treatment.  Lice eggs are glued to the hair strand and have a shell that product simply cannot penetrate.

Even when shampoos work, they kill only hatched lice, not nits.  Infested people must shampoo again after the nits have hatched, if they get the timing wrong-waiting until the newly-hatched lice have laid eggs on their own-the treatment must begin again

Lice combing and herbal remedies to remove lice and nits are safe and also popular, but combing out the critters can take hours and requires patience, accuracy, and a high quality nit comb. Every nit must be removed.

Mayo

Lice eggs are the size of a grain of sand and all lice eggs hatch within about 5-7 days. If you do not comb out every single egg , your head lice infestation can continue for days, weeks, months, or even years due to the lice life cycle.

Head Lice Life Cycle

Another critical fact to know is that lice is a family affair. All immediate family members are at high risk for getting lice. 50% of the people treated at our Los Alamitos and Torrance clinics are children ages 5-17 but the other 50% we treat are older siblings and parents of the infested person-usually moms. Based on the statistics we track at our two clinics, moms get head lice about 80% of the time when their children get head lice.

It’s clear to see that over the counter pesticides are simply too dangerous and not effective to use on your family. And when there are nontoxic treatment options available that are also more effective, it’s a no-brainer.

The most effective weapon against lice is actually using heated air.  Lice will never develop a resistance to heat. The professional AirAllé lice device is a non-chemical treatment that is safe, easy, and effective.  It is specifically designed to dehydrate lice and their eggs with warm, heated air that delivers two to three more air than a standard blow dryer at a constant temperature during a single, 30 minute treatment. It is FDA-cleared and has been proven to be safe and effective at killing lice and their eggs—with a 99.2% rate of efficacy.

Our Los Alamitos and Torrance clinics have successfully treated families representing over 800 different schools and 125 different cities from all over the Southern California region. We look forward to having the opportunity to get your family lice free today and turn what can be a very stressful event in your life into a pleasant and memorable customer service experience.

Step 1:  Head Screen

Upon arrival to our clinic, a certified head lice technician will conduct a comprehensive head screen to confirm that there is an active lice infestation.  A proper head screen can take as long as 15-20 minutes or if lice is found just a few minutes.

Step 2: Review Our 3 Treatment Options

Once we confirm there is an active head lice infestation, your assigned certified head lice technician will review with you the level of infestation and our three treatment options.  If a treatment option is selected , we waive the head screen charge.  We offer treatment options for all budgets and ages:

1) Do-It-Yourself Urgent Care Kit

2)  AirAllé® Express Treatment

Microscopic view of a louse. Lice have six legs that allow them to crawl from hair strand to hair strand. Lice do not hop, jump, or fly. Head to head contact is the number one way to get lice.

All a louse needs to live is one hard strand and a scalp to feed on human blood every few hours.  The louse in this photo is red in color because she has recently had its meal of human blood.  

A female adult louse lays 4-8 eggs  (nits) a day every day for up to 16 days before its life ends.  Not all eggs hatch but if an egg does hatch, it must hatch within 5-7days.


Close-up view of louse egg. Lice eggs are called nits because adult female lice secretes a glue type substance.  The lice eggs have a protective shell that product cannot penetrate.

Thinking of shaving your head?  Lice do not care about length of hair.  All a louse needs is just one hair strand to grab onto and a warm scalp to feed on. This is is a photo of a lice infested dad we treated with a shaved, “#1” haircut.

We have treated families that have had lice for days, weeks, and even years. Here is a photo of a 13 year old patient we recently treated that had a severe infestation. She had lice for 6 years.  Prior to being treated at our clinic, the family had tried everything and spent thousands of dollar on options that did not work: Manual comb out, Rid, Nix, Scope, Tea Treat Oil, Olive Oil, mayonnaise,  prescription Sklice, and Cocunut oil.  None of those options worked to end her head lice infestation. This 13 year old patient left our clinic lice free!

Lice and their eggs are primarily composed of water. The AirAllé Medical Device uses controlled, heated air at just the right temperature and time to dehydrate both lice and their eggs.

Similar to boiling an egg, the lice egg is now dehydrated, dead, not viable, and will no longer hatch.

Lice have nostrils that allow them to breath.  Our chemical free active rinse suffocates the lice within 7 minutes or less by plugging their nostrils. The photo on the right is an adult louse that has been suffocated with our chemical free, dimethicone based active rinse.

Lice are primarily composed of water.  Using controlled, heated air at just the right amount of temperature at just the right amount of time will dehydrate and kill them. The photo on the left is an female adult louse that has been dehydrated by our medical device.
