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.”

  • Massaging hair brush

    I have come across numerous ads about massaging hair brushes that have a vibratory action and claim to stimulate the hair follicles as well as increase blood flow to the scalp. This conforms to the age old saying that massaging one's hair is always good for its gowth. They are relatively cheap and require 2 AA batteries. I have also heard testimonials where those who have tried it on a daily basis feel better about the thicker and fuller appearance of their hair.
    Why would someone pay 50-60 times as much to purchase the HairMax lasercomb when similar results could be obtained with this relatively inexpensive option.

    Dear "jamoora",

    Hello and thank you for your message. As I'm sure many of the readers of this forum are aware, there are countless so-called remedies for hair loss. Just because a company advertises and posts testimonials, does not mean that their product works or that the testimonials are authentic. As a consumer, you need to educate yourself and make the decision that makes the most sense. A cheaply made product that uses 2 AA batteries sounds like something you would purchase at your local convenience store.

    Our device is a high-quality precision instrument and is proudly manufactured in the United States. Within the last several years the American Medical Practitioners have embraced Photo therapy for problem hair. Many doctors and professionals in the medical community support and distribute our product. I very much doubt that the same can be said of this vibrating brush. If treating problem hair were as easy as buying a $10 brush that massages the scalp, then there wouldn't be millions of people suffering from hairloss.

    The LaserComb is CE compliant, ISO certified for safety, issued a medical license from Health Canada and complies with the US CDRH requirements for laser safety. We are proud to say that in the last 5 years of service we have maintained over 90% success rate and offer the most generous money back guarantee in the industry. Why would you want to pay more for our product? The answer is clear!
