PROFESSIONAL LICE REMOVAL SOLUTION

AirAllé® (pronounced air-a-lay)

 

  • An FDA-cleared medical device
  • Kills head lice and 99.2 percent of lice eggs
  • A single, one-hour treatment
  • Used by lice-removal professionals around the world
  • Provides 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.

REVOLUTIONARY

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.

Distinguished Innovation

The AirAllé® device concept originated in the laboratory of Dr. Dale Clayton 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.

1996

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 was informed that, because of Utah's arid climate, they too had difficulty keeping insect cultures alive.

The Problem

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

The Solution

The culmination, of years of work and prototypes, was the publication in 2006 of a paper in the journal Pediatrics along with a press release by the University of Utah generated a feeding frenzy of worldwide media attention that validated widespread interest in such a device, and the critical need for it.

2011

A follow-up study was published in the Journal of Medical Entomology that showed the LouseBuster (which is now the AirAllé® Lice Device) was highly effective at killing lice and eggs.

PLEASE NOTE: The AirAllé® device cannot be used to treat persons who cannot sense temperature or pain; who cannot communicate physical discomfort; who have open head wounds, sores, or visible signs of skin or scalp abnormalities; who have received radiation treatment of the head within the last 6 months; who have cranial or facial implants; children under the age of 4; or who have hair that cannot be combed through with a standard comb.
