AirAllé™ (pronounced air-a-lay) is a revolutionary, FDA-cleared medical device that kills head lice and 99.2 percent of lice and lice eggs in a single, one-hour treatment.
During the first 30-minutes of treatment, we will gently place the device’s applicator tip under the hair and against the head, moving its position every 30 seconds until the entire head has been treated. Because the purpose of the AirAllé device is to kill the lice and eggs through dehydration (and not to blow them out of the hair), dead lice and dead eggs will remain in the hair after treatment. We will then do a post-treatment comb-out (which usually takes 30 minutes) with a good quality lice comb to remove the dead lice and eggs.
AirAllé treatments are not for individuals younger than four years of age.
