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.”

  • No result after 3 months of use 3x a week

    Unfortunately I have not seen any improvement in hair growth and I am at the 3 month point in treatment. In fact I have lost more hair in the frontal hairline as of recent. I wish the news was different for both me and the HairComb as I have at least 20 people that are waiting to order based on my experience. Do you have a short summary of the specific data and results that you are reporting to the FDA currently?. I want to really believe in this product and try and continue on but it looks like the time in treatment is turning out to be wasted energy. Please advise on with new fact based information other than just postive thoughts that will keep me using this product and not returning within the 90 day window. Thanks and again sorry to share the not so great news/.

    Dear JC,

    Hello and thank you for your posting. The HairMax LaserComb has over a 90% + success rate, and approximately a 7% return rate.

    In general, about 45% of users see noticeable indications of benefits from use of the LaserComb within the first 6 weeks. Another 45% realize indications from 6 to 12 weeks, and 10% see distinct improvements after 12 weeks. We are very flexible in extending guarantee periods up to an additional 8 weeks thereafter, because we do realize some people may take longer than others. We profoundly believe in the product, if we didn't we wouldn't be so lenient.

    Also, note people's perceived benefits don't necessarily parallel with actual benefts. Please keep in mind you are looking in the mirror several times a day, every day and it is hard to notice.

    I would like to go over what happened with one of our user's in our clinical trials. We had a lady in her mid 40's in our clinical FDA trials for regrowth. At the end of the trials (1 year later) she had a 60% increase in hair count. She looked in the mirror and honestly believed she could not notice any benefits, or change. Note: People's perceived benefits don't necessarily parallel with actual benefts. In order to maintain benefits you need to stay consistent. If you stop the hair will regress. My recommendation would definitely be to continue to use it 3x a week.

    Below are two recent clinical studies where it shows the true efficacies of the HairMax LaserComb for your review.

    Please stay positive!
