powered by the AirAllé Medical Device

Our clinics are the exclusive regional operators of the AirAllé – (pronounced air-a-lay) medical device. This FDA-cleared medical device treats head lice and their eggs in one single treatment using controlled, warm air to dehydrate both lice and their eggs.  This professional lice device is operated by our trained and certified head-lice technicians and has performed over 200,000 successful head lice treatments.

Our entire 3-step process is both chemical-free and kid-friendly!


Step 1: Certified Head Lice Technician uses the AirAllé Medical Device to dehydrate the lice and their eggs. Once dehydrated, the lice eggs will no longer be viable and cannot hatch.  (30 minutes)


Step 2: Certified Head Lice Technician performs a comprehensive comb-out of all dead, dehydrated lice and their eggs. (average comb-out is 45 minutes)

a post-treatment rinse using dimethicone oil

Step 3: Certified Head Lice Technician applies our chemical-free active rinse to suffocate any live lice that might have survived the process. (10 minutes)

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

Had it with pesticide lice treatments that do not work and are very high in chemical content? Over-the-counter (OTC) lice treatments 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 muted and are now resistant to the chemicals in OTC lice treatment products.


Although there are many products out there that 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 have a shell that product simply cannot penetrate.  If you do not dehydrate or remove every single egg by hand your head lice infestation will continue for days, weeks, months, or even years.


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 Lice Clinics of America Los Alamitos and Lice Clinics of America South Bay are children ages 5-17 but the other 50% we treat are older siblings and parents of the infested person-usually moms.


Lice do not care and do not know length of your hair, age, income, ethnicity, what you do for a living, time of the year, if you have had lice before, or if you have never had lice before.  Our Los Alamitos and South Bay clinics have successfully treated families representing over 500 different schools and 125 different cities.

Head Lice Life Cycle

Head Lice Life Cycle

Lice eggs are glued to the hair strand and the size of a grain of sand.  Lice eggs are commonly referred to as nits because of the glue they secrete.  Lice eggs hatch within 5-7 says after they’re laid by the female lice.  The AirAllé medical device uses controlled, heated air to dehydrate all lice eggs so they are no longer viable and cannot hatch.

Lice Nymphs to Adult
 Right to left: If not eliminated, the lice egg will hatch.  Within a period of 10 days, the lice will grow from a baby on the right to a nymph (teenager) in the middle to and adult on the far left. Adult lice can mate and the female can start laying eggs within 24 hours after mating.  The head lice life-cycle and lice infestation will continue.

Female head lice lay eggs (nits) on the hair shaft about 1/4-inch away from the scalp, although they can be found anywhere on the scalp.  Adult lice are about the size of a sesame seed.  The adult female lice lays up to 4-8 eggs a day for about 2 1/2  weeks and live for about 1 month. By the time they die, one female lice can lay over 100 eggs and the head-lice life cycle and lice infestation will continue. Below is a severe head lice infestation recently treated at our clinic:


Many families tell us that we do not need to screen the dad for lice because “his head is shaved” or “he has very little hair.” However, for your protection, in order to qualify for our optional 30 day lice free guarantee, we require head screening and application of our active rinse on all immediate family members that are not completely bald.   All head lice and their eggs need to survive is a warm scalp and a strand of hair. A warm scalp for the egg to nest on and a scalp for the live lice to suck blood every 3 hours. Below is a photo of a dad’s hair recently treated at our clinic. His head is shaved yet he had a severe lice infestation with over 50 lice eggs and live lice in his hair.
