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.”

  • 20 year old with some questions

    I have some thinning and hair loss in the temple region.
    According to this thread:
    After about 6 months of usage, you should reduce treatments to once a week because your body might get used to the treatment thereby making the lasercomb ineffective and you'll start losing hair again. My question is, how do I know that my hair won't get used to the once a week treatments, thereby becoming ineffective and making the lasercomb useless? How long is the lasercomb effective for in preventing hair loss? Also, let's say that the lasercomb does prevent my hair loss for its lifetime (10 to 15 years), does this mean I should buy another lasercomb after that time period, will you guys still be selling the lasercomb in 10 to 15 years?

    Hairmax Lasercomb Usage

    Hi boxer5151-

    Thank you for your post.

    The HairMax LaserComb is effective over time without any decrease in effect and can be used indefinitely to maintain hair growth. The hair bulbs continue to respond to the stimulation of the laser energy for as long as you use the device and they will not "get used to" to the laser energy and lose efficacy.

    The recommendation to use the device on a less frequent interval after maximum results are achieved, is because we have found that hair regrown with the HairMax LaserComb can be maintained with less frequent applications. Also, continued use contributes to overall hair health. However, it is up to each individual to decide how frequently to use the device to maintain regrowm hair.

    If you reach the end of the life span of your HairMax, you will always be able to purchase a replacement.

    We wish you continued success with the HairMax LaserComb.

      So do you think if I start using it, I will no longer lose hair for as long as I keep using it? So when I'm 50, will I still have the same amount of hair I have now regardless of my genetics?

        Thank you for your post.

        Using he HairMax LaserComb indefinitely will help you maintain the hair you have grown back from using the device. However, if any sites in the future are genetically programmed to stop a hair bulb from functioning any longer, then the HairMax will not grow hair at those sites.

        The good news is that there should be enough active hair bulbs that will continue to react positively to the HairMax and you should therefore maintain the hair you have.

        We wish you continued success with the HairMax LaserComb.
