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.”

  • very worried about hair loss

    Hi, I am 32 male and have been loosing my hair since last six years. I have had consulations with Bosley and MHR for hair transplant but they are very expensive. I have also used Propecia for about 9 months, did not see significant improvment and finally quit using it. I just did google search and came across this forum.
    Can anybody help me get an idea of this laser comb and does it really work? how long does it take to see the results? do i have to use it for the rest of my life?
    I would appreciate if some reall people can share their experiences.

    Hello. Thank you for your post.

    The HairMax LaserComb works through a process called Photo-Bio-Stimulation, basically what that means is that it transforms laserlight energy into cell energy, energizing your hair. The end result is that the hair flourishes, it grows very thick, healthy, and vibrant.

    In the USA, HairMax LaserComb complies with FDA CDRH safety regulations for cosmetic laser. This means we can ethically state benefits such as healthier, fuller, shinier, and stronger hair. We have also completed our initial clinical trial . The results were statistically significant and we presented it to the FDA for medical device clearance . They have now asked us for a 2nd phase of clinical research, which is normal but we thought since our results were so positive they would have granted us clearance quicker. We are pursuing an additional clinical study and hope to have it all finalized in the beginning of 2005.

    Please keep in mind that our LaserComb is a drug-free treatment with no side-effects. Most importantly, the science makes perfect sense and we have seen very positive results in thousands of people with all types of conditions. Also, keep in mind hairloss is an ongoing treatment, it's like anything in life, if you exercise today you need to exercise tomorrow in order to maintain benefits. The difference is your not doing this everyday, several times a day. The treatment consists of 3 times a week maximum, for 10 to 15 minutes per treatment. Lexington Int'l offers a 12 week money back guarantee, because that is in fact a realistic time frame. However, we do realize some people may take longer than others which is why we are flexible in extending guarantee periods up to an add'l 8 weeks thereafter, granted that you call our office on, or before the 12 week period. We believe this is fair. Quite honestly there is no company in the industry who offers such a guarantee policy.

    Ultimately, the benefits we have been demonstrating with the LaserComb are both extremely exciting and very encouraging.

    Also, if you take the time to review the forum, you will find the answers to many of your questions.

        I just took delivery of my comb and eagerly look forward to seeing the benefits of the product. So, over the coming weeks, I hope to give you some very positive feedback.

        One thing that takes some getting used to, mentally, is only using it 3-4 times per week maximum. As with other products, they require daily or twice-daily useage...[/b]
