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.”

  • It works!!

    I'm not one for usually endorsing a product nor has Hairmax asked me to do this but I figured since most of the time all people will write in about is the negatives, I would write in how this has worked better than any treatment I've used as of yet. I am a 30 y/o male and have tried just like many others Rogaine to no luck and another product I haven't heard anyone else mention on here called power plus by Farouk. The power plus worked for me better than the Rogaine- the Rogaine just produced little fuzzy hairs at most but the laser comb is actually growing hair everywhere and not just peach fuzz. I think I'm more of a realist than alot of people in that I don't expect any treatment to work overnight since the balding didn't start overnight for me. I probably started losing my hair in my early 20's- enough to where it started bothering me in my mid 20's. I noticed after a month of using the comb small amounts of hair trying to grow from my scalp. At four months, which is where I'm at now, I am really noticing significant hair growth especially towards the back of my head where I was thinnest. I can actually move my hands through my hair now and feel it throughout my scalp which I had not been able to do since my early 20's. It's actually kind of promising to know a product can do this much. I was hesitant like anyone else to shell out the $645 for one of these but I can now say it was worth it- I know it may not work for everyone but I could really tell the difference within the time frame they give you for the return of the laser comb if you wanted to. My only question to Sonya or Mike is- How well do the vitamins really work? I am having great results with just the comb- are the vitamins really that much better to use with the comb? I'm also still using the shampoo and conditioner you guys sell until I run out of the product and switch over to some natural stuff I found at a Trader Joe's near me. Thanks, Joe

    Hello "Unregistered" and thank you for your post,

    We here at Lexington appreciate the fact that you are willing to let it be known that the LaserComb has worked so well for you. As I tell everyone, you are one of a growing number of LaserComb users who see real results, and for this you should be extremely excited.

    As for the vitamins, the are especially helpful. They have high concentrations of biotin, pantothenic Acid, and vitamin B-12 (among the many other necessary vitamins and supplements they contain.) These vitamins, above all, assist in the amino acid to protein conversions which are vital to sustaining healthy hair.

    Again, we are THRILLED to hear about your results from your LaserComb treatments. Congrats!

    Lexington International
