Landmark HairMax LaserComb Clinical Study Results Published, Proving Efficacy and Safety In Treating Hair Loss

The results of 4 clinical studies conclusively proving the efficacy and safety of the HairMax LaserComb was published in a peer review medical journal in April 2014 and here is a summation of the article.

"The results of four clinical studies on the treatment of male and female pattern hair loss with the HairMax LaserComb, was just published today in a peer-review journal, The American Journal of Clinical Dermatology. The article, Efficacy and Safety of a Low-level Laser Device in the Treatment of Male and Female Pattern Hair Loss: A Multicenter, Randomized, Sham Device-controlled, Double-blind Study was co-authored by renowned experts in the field of hair disorders. The results of these studies have now provided robust and conclusive evidence that the HairMax LaserComb is both effective and safe for the treatment of pattern hair loss in men and women.

This is the link to the clinical article:

The four clinical studies were conducted under strict Good Clinical Practice Guidelines at multiple study sites, including major teaching institutions of dermatology such as the Cleveland Clinic, University of Minnesota and University of Miami. Enrolled in the study were 225 males and females diagnosed with androgenetic alopecia (male and female pattern hair loss). Subjects received either the HairMax LaserComb or a sham (inactive) device in a randomized, blinded manner so that no one knew which device they were on. The primary efficacy analysis was based on the change in hair count after 26 weeks treatment with the HairMax LaserComb, compared to change in hair count with the sham (inactive) device.

The results of the studies showed that there was an average increase in terminal hair count of over 20 hairs per cm² (equivalent to over 139 hairs per square inch). Additionally, a higher percentage of lasercomb-treated subjects reported overall improvement in hair loss condition and thickness and fullness of hair in self-assessment, compared with sham-treated subjects. No serious adverse events were reported in any subject receiving the lasercomb in any of the studies.

The authors concluded that: “Our results suggest that low-level laser treatment may be an effective option to treat pattern hair loss in men and women”. They also concluded that “Low Level Laser Therapy [LLLT] may provide a promising treatment option for patients who do not respond to either finasteride or minoxidil, and who do not want to undergo hair transplantation.”

The authors also had this overall observation: “…… while topical minoxidil solution or foam is widely used to treat pattern hair loss and is generally well tolerated, the treatment needs to be applied one or twice daily, and be in contact with the scalp for at least 4 hours. Such application can be impractical for many users, leading to noncompliance and reduced efficacy. As an alternative, the lasercomb treatment is safe and easy to apply, with 8-15 minutes of treatment three times per week, and leaves no residue on the scalp. Such user friendliness of the lasercomb may lead to better patient compliance and improved efficacy.”

Dr. Lawrence Schachner, Chairman of the Department of Dermatology at the Miller School of Medicine of the University of Miami, and senior author of the article said: “The results of these clinical studies provide further evidence that the HairMax LaserComb may be utilized as an effective option for treating androgenetic alopecia in men and women.”

    i purchased my hairmax laser comb about 3 and a half months ago to help regrow my receeding hairline and to thicken hair. im a 23 year old male - im not bald but people have made comments it wont be long before i lose it! ive havent experienced any regrowth in the temple areas yet just a few random hairs in central forehead area. i will stick with hairmax as i know i should give it at least 6 months before i can judge if it works. do you suggest i just spend more time on the temple areas for regrowth?

    i really want to regrow the temple areas and thicken it all up. ive just recently tried saw palmetto to aid the regowth and i might stick with this as i hear good things. im open to other vitamin options if any one has any to help regrowing my hair. i use head and shoulders endurance shampoo but im not sure if this good for the hairline? it does thicken my hair and removes dandruff - does anyone reccomend any other shampoo for helping regrowing my hair. so basically i need tips about using hairmax laser comb, vitamins and shampoo to aid my use of hairmax. i would really appreciate some some feed back asap!

    Hairmax Lasercomb And Other Products

    Hi DirtyRoberto -

    Thank you for your post.

    The HairMax LaserComb has been proven to work when used as sole treatment in hereditary hair loss. However, many users have also chosen to use other products to enhance the effect of the HairMax. Since the HairMax has direct action on the hair follicle to induce anagen induction, it is up to each individual user to research and find other products with other mechanisms of action that might synergise the effects of the HairMax.

    As you are aware, we do recommend that you use the HairMax for at least 6 months to judge results.

    We wish you continued success in your use of the Hairmax LaserComb.
