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.”

  • what more can I get from LC

    Ok I have been using hairmax LC premium for around 3 months now ,before I started using it I had what I thought was dandruff that I would never get rid of but 3 month with the comb and my scalp health is good and no dandruff at all, but no new thick hair growth yet however under lamp light I can see very fine blonde hair in a perfect hairline shape so I know the folicles there are not dead yet and therefore there is a window of opitunity for them to get thicker.

    My question is, will the fine blonde hairs always stay thin and not noticable or will they thicken up over time?

    I will say though this hairmax comb could be marketed as an anti dandruff unit by itself, and I will always use it now just for that reason, even if hair did not get thicker, I will look at progress again at 6 months and then 1 year

    Hairmax Lasercomb Efficacy

    Hi beehive09 -

    Thank your for your post.

    We are glad to hear that at 3 months you are starting to see hair regrowth. From continued use of the HairMax, you will see your hair come back in as thicker terminal hair, so keep on using the device.

    We have received numerous reports from users that their dandruff condition has improved from using the HairMax. Based on these reports, we are presently conducting a clinical study to validate these findings and we will keep the Forum posted on the progress of this study.

    We wish you continued success in your use of the HairMax LaserComb.

        Hairmax Lasercomb Maintenance

        Hi soorhoori -

        Thank you for your post.

        We are pleased that you have received the results you were looking for from the HairMax.

        We recommend that you use the HairMax 2 times a week in maintenance, but this is up to each individual. If you are using once a week and you start to notice increased hair loss, than simply increase the frequency of use until you hair loss stabilizes.

        We wish you continued success in you use of the HairMax LaserComb.
