A specific combination of temperature, airflow, time and technique kills the lice and their eggs.The LouseBuster™ device delivers carefully controlled heated air directly to dry, untangled hair that is free of hair treatment products, at a temperature cooler than most hair-dryers and at a much higher flow rate. A unique, single-use applicator tip specially designed to penetrate beyond the insulating layer of hair is used to lift the hair slightly while directing airflow right onto lice and eggs which tend to be located near the scalp and hair roots. A specific, timed treatment pattern is followed to ensure all areas of the head are treated. No pesticides or other chemicals are used in the therapy; just heated air.
The LouseBuster™ device is highly effective because the small size and shape of head lice and their eggs make it difficult for them to conserve water. As such, when they are exposed to the right amount of heated air at the right temperature and for the right length of time, they dry out and die.
