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.”

    Normal hair loss

    Hi Sach 633 -

    Yes, you are correct, but in fact even a daily loss of up to 100 hairs a day is normal, too. Any shedding beyond that amount may indicate that you have pattern hair loss and can consider the HairMax laser devices for treatment. The earlier you start treatment the better will be the results.

    Thanks for the comment.

    50 strands a day? There is nothing to worry about

    As per my knowledge losing 50 strands a day is natural. You should not worry about your hairs until you lose more than 100 strands in a single day.

    Hairmax efficacy

    Hi Binked -

    Thank you for your post.

    As we have said, the earlier you start treatment the better chance there is for success. However, the HairMax is also indicated for more advanced stages of hair loss, and if you go to this link, you will see the stages of hair loss for which the HairMax is indicated.

    Thank you for your post.

    To begin with, the average individual loses about 100 hairs a day, so you are within the normal range. However, if there is a history of hair loss in your family, you should start early to treat the condition, to hopefully slow or stop the progression.

    There is no known software for diagnosing the condition, but there is a wealth of information on hair loss on the internet, which you can access and learn from. We make the HairMax laser devices, which are FDA Cleared for treating hair loss, and if you go to the web site, you will find information there on possible treatment.

    We wish you success in treating your hair loss.

    but are there any chances to combat this if I am starting to do something not "early" enough?? by, like for example, using such stuff as Finasteride or maybe something else?

    Hair loss getting worse?

    Hello, I am getting worried because I loss approximately 50 strands of hair daily. We had a history of baldness and I do not want to come up to that point.

    As much as I want to have my check-up, my work stops me to do so. I am working 6 days a week, and I only have 1 rest day. I am wondering if I can consult a provider online using a software? I would just need to know what medications need to be used to manage this problem?TIA
