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.”

  • Lazer Characteristics

    What type of lazer are you using in the LazerComb and at what frequency is it emitting? I've read some studies that not all low level lazer treatments have the same effect.

    "BHC Laser Light Hair Therapy (inGaAl, 670 nm) increased scalp blood flow rate by 54%. The Boston laser (HeNe,632.8nm) had no effect, and the LED (placebo) decreased the blood flow rate by 36%. There has no thermal component, and the warm feeling can be attributed to stimulation of microcirculation of blood supply. Furthermore, initially an oilier scalp is often noticed. The scalp usually normalizes after two to four treatments. Conversely, a scalp that was oily before treatment will normalize in the same way. This condition has not been fully explained, but is believed to be the result of the normalization of the sebum (lipid) secretion from the sebacious gland during treatment, after inactive hair follicles have been stimulated, the sebum (5a-reductase) is thought to play a role in hairloss and regrowth. The described reaction to treatment is a natural reaction, which indicates that the therapy is working."

    I am also using Fabao 101D formula which has already made significant improvement in my shedding and promoting healthier hair and works on the same priciples that it helps with blood circulation and the reduction of excessive sebum in the scalp. Will the lazer break down the active ingredients in the topical solution I am using?

    Also, I am a Canadian resident, is there a Canadian supplier which I can order from to avoid the exchange rate, duties and excessive shipping charges? If not, how is it descibed as a product? When I order the Fabao 101D, it is described as shampoo and the estimated cost is only $10, so I only pay duties on this amount.

    Thanks for your time.

    Dear Joe,

    You are right: not all low level laser therapy has the same effect. But that is due to numerous factors encompassed within "irradiance" (i.e., the time factor relative to power level and wavelength in which the skin is irradiated). We have studied this subject along with many others related to low level laser therapy over many years. We have a wealth of knowledge about this but it would take too long (and divulge too many trade "secrets" than is necessary).

    The main thing to bear in mind is that
    if you are getting results from Fabao you are one of the small percentage whose
    hair loss is mainly based on over-oily scalp. With the HairMax LaserComb it doesn't matter what the cause is; genetic, systemic, emotional, topical, you name it...HairMax works on the topical level, not to "cure" or eliminate the cause but to offset it's effects by the regular (once or twice a week usage for 5 to 10 minutes) to
    stimulate and strengthen the hair roots to withstand these initial causes.

    It is easy to use, gentle and effective. Moreover, it carries a genuine money-back guarantee. The proof of the pudding is in the eating!
