Rid Lice Effectively


We empower parents and caregivers to use the safest, most effective methods to rid lice.  With over 750,000 successful treatments performed, and less than 1% of our clients needing to be re-treated, we stand behind our Signature AirAllé® Treatment for 30 days. Lice removal made easy with our one time treatment!

The AirAllé® Device

Get rid of lice fast with the AirAllé® device. Our FDA-cleared** medical device blows heated air through its applicator tip, along the scalp and hair shafts at a higher flow (but cooler temperature) than a hair dryer.

Single One-Hour Treatment

A unique, single-use applicator tip is specially designed to penetrate beyond the insulating layer of hair. Lice and eggs tend to be located near the scalp and hair roots, so our AirAllé® device is designed to lift the hair slightly, while directing air flow to appropriate areas.

No Pesticides, No Toxins

Lice Clinics follow a specifically timed treatment pattern to ensure that we treat all areas of the head. There are no pesticides or other chemicals used in the therapy; just heated air.

Highly Effective

Head lice and their eggs have a difficult time consuming water because of their small size. The AirAllé® kills them through dehydration, which is why the treatment is so effective. Our Signature AirAllé® Treatment is a 3 Step Process that desiccates lice and their eggs in a single treatment.*

Works Every Time

When they are exposed to the right amount of heated air at the right temperature and for the right length of time, lice dry out and die. Basically, the device dehydrates/dries out lice and their eggs.



Traditional drug store lice products do not kill lice eggs. However, our FDA-cleared device** is so effective at killing lice eggs, the chances of needing a follow-up treatment are very small.

In 2006 and 2011, Pediatrics and Journal of Medical Entomology published clinical studies demonstrating the safety and efficacy of the AirAllé® device. Subsequently, the FDA cleared the AirAllé® for head lice treatments**.  The AirAllé® device performs thousands of successful lice treatments each month.

Distinguished Innovation

Dr. Dale Clayton originated the concept for the AirAllé® device in a laboratory at the University of Utah, where he is a professor in the Department of Biology.

1980‘s – Early 1990’s

Dr. Clayton successfully cultured lice on captive birds, such as common pigeons, for basic research purposes.


When he moved his lab to the University of Utah, from Oxford University in England, he encountered great difficulty keeping lice alive on captive birds. He learned that, because of Utah’s arid climate, they too had difficulty keeping insect cultures alive.

The Problem

When his elementary-aged children contracted head lice, he thought it might be possible to eliminate them by reducing the level of humidity near the scalp. The question was how to accomplish this trick.

The Solution

In 2006, Dr. Clayton released a paper in the journal Pediatrics, and participated in a press release that generated a frenzy of worldwide media attention on the critical need for a device to rid lice.


The Journal of Medical Entomology published a follow-up study that showed the LouseBuster (now the AirAllé® Lice Device), because of how effectively it could kill lice and eggs. Subsequently, the FDA cleared the AirAllé® for head lice treatment**.


The American Academy of Pediatrics (Pediatrics volume 135, number 5, May 2015) listed the AirAllé® device as the only device to kill lice and eggs through desiccation. It stated regular blow dryers should not be used for treating lice.


March 2015 survey of professional lice clinics, clinic owners reported successful treatments in a single visit over 99 percent of the time, on average, when using the AirAllé® device.
