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.”

  • hyperthyroidism

    I've been losing hair due to hyperthyroidism. Can the lasercomb help me get grow some back without doing any more damage?

    Hello "Some_Guy" (cool name) and thanks for your post,

    Hyperthyroidism is a condition that can certainly cause hairloss. While I am not a doctor, and you are not under our medical care here at Lexington, it would be hard for me to really advise you on anything related to this condition.

    I would say that if nothing else, the LaserComb will not make your condition deteriorate further..... so it is definetly worth giving a try. The best case is that the LaserComb will revitalize your hair and return it to looking fuller healthier and thicker.

    Keep in mind that we do offer a 12 week money back guarantee (extendable to 20) so that you can try the product and accurately gauge whether or not it works for you. I think in your case, that would be your best bet.

      Re. hyperthyroidism

      Dear Some_Guy...I know for a medical fact that hyperthyroidism is a cause of hair loss; in fact, my doctor (female) had the same major hair loss from hyperthyroidism and she had to get part of the thyroid gland surgically removed, and now her thyroid hormones are regulated with Synthroid (totally safe.) The good news is, her hair fallout completely turned around and regrew, although not quite as thick as before, but as long as your hairloss is not also caused by Androgenic Alopecia (male pattern hair loss) as well, your hair loss should reverse itself with the thyroid resolution. Good luck and God bless!

        I have a friend that was diagnosed with thyroid problems and while i havent had it tested myself i follow a lot of the same symtoms to it. However as for the hair loss caused by it does it affect the entire head??? Or would it just get the top like male pattern baldness??
