Provides a fast and safe head lice treatment that is highly effective
The FDA-cleared꙳ medical device kills lice and eggs through heated air. An alternative to treating lice with pesticides, suffocation products, herbal lice remedies, or lice combs. The AirAllé® was invented at the University of Utah and it uses a specific technique that combines temperature and airflow for a certain length of time (only 30 minutes) to kill lice and eggs through dehydration.
INNOVATIVE & REVOLUTIONARY
No follow ups are needed for the majority of the treatments using the AirAllé device since its effectiveness has been proven to kill lice and nits (lice eggs, that are traditionally the hardest to kill).
The efficacy and safety of the medical device has been verified by medical studies performed in customers with Lice.
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.
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.
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 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.
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.
