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.”

    I'm 24 years old, male. I started having problems with hairloss in the temples when I was 19, but I had a lot of hair. I didn't make almost nothing until last year, when I went to an hair salon where I understood the benefits of laser therapy, but it was very expensive, so I decided to buy Lasercomb when I founded it.
    Shedding started after the first usage and rose up from 60 x day to 120. after 4-5 weeks I noticed the first little peach fuzz, but shedding continued until the 8th week, when almost suddendly it falled to about 50 hairs a day. Now I've lost a lot of hair I had in telogen, and my esthetic condition is not very good, but every week I see new little hair that are numerically growing, even if slowly but progressively. I think it is a good sign, and I will continue with LC three times a week; ater 6 months I think to reduce 2x and 1x after 1 year. My hope is to strong hair I have and get back with time hair I've lost on last 2 years. Could it be possible? Could I have an other reduction on the daily shedding?
    Furthermore, since I have some tiny birth-mark in the scalp could it be dangerous lasering them?
    I will send you my progress if it will be.

    Keep Going!

    Dear "Unregistered" User,

    Hello and thank you for your post.

    What you are describing is very common with our users. The fact that the shedding stopped around the 8th week and you are seeing "new" hairs is correct, because the hair grows approximately a centimeter per month. Soon you will be entering your 3rd month and these hairs will become more noticeable and longer in months 4 through 6. The fact that your hair counts are increasing or as you state "numerically growing" is a clear sign of regrowth. That is significant!! With continued use of the LaserComb these hairs will become stronger, thicker, healthier, longer lasting hairs.

    In regards to your birthmark, the LaserComb should not have any effect on it whatsoever.
