AirAllé® (pronounced air-a-lay) is an FDA-cleared medical device that kills head lice and 99.2 percent of lice eggs in a single, one-hour treatment. Formerly called LouseBuster, the AirAllé device is used by lice-removal professionals around the world to provide a safe, fast and highly effective lice treatment.
The FDA-cleared AirAllé device kills lice and eggs through dehydration. This is a revolutionary alternative to treating head lice with pesticides, herbal lice remedies, suffocation products or lice combs. The device, which was invented by scientists at the University of Utah, kills lice and eggs through a specific combination of temperature, airflow, time and technique.
Because the AirAllé device is so effective at killing lice eggs (which are the hardest for traditional lice products to kill), the chances of needing a follow-up treatment are very small.
Clinical studies done on over 500 people with head lice demonstrated the safety and efficacy of the AirAllé device and treatment (see published data in the peer-reviewed Pediatrics and Journal of Medical Entomology). Thousands of successful lice treatments are now being done each month with the AirAllé device.
An AirAllé lice treatment takes about an hour, including a short post-treatment comb-out. AirAllé treatments are not for individuals younger than four years of age (see contraindications and possible risks). For more detailed information on the AirAllé device, see the FAQ page.
