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.”

  • Shedding

    I am using the hairmax laser comb for about a month now and I am experiencing shedding. I know that this means that hairmax is working. But I wanted to know how long does the shedding period usually last?

    Hairmax Lasercomb And Shedding

    Hi rabindranath -

    Thank you for your post.

    The shedding you are experiencing early on in treatment with the HairMax should subside within about 2 months. However, bear in mind that the hair on your head will always b going through the normal cycle of shedding, rest and regrowth so you will always experience some shedding as part of this cycle.

    Our best advice is to continue to use the HairMax for at least 20 weeks to judge final results.

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

      Shedding and Beeping

      Hello Friends and Doctors,
      I have been using my laser comb for about 3 weeks now as directed. At first my hair appeared noticeably thicker , and then this week I began shedding . Is this normal? Is it a good or bad sign? Will I regrow the hair that I have shed? How long does a cycle usually take?
      In addition, when I turn of my unit it emits a loud *BEEEEEP* and I was wondering if that was normal and if not, what should I do?

          Is there a UK phone number?

          And just a wee update for anyone who is interested, I have been using the comb for two and a half weeks now. Thus far I do not seem to be experiencing any additional shedding, but my hair does appear thicker and is definately more managable. I am still experiencing itchy scalp though, hoping that will stop. So some positive signs and some neagtive ones, but I realise it is early days.
