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.”

    Hairmax Lasercomb And Shedding

    Hi Celine -

    Thank you for your post.

    As we have pointed out before, the HairMax does not CAUSE hair loss. Rather, the device causes the fine, telogen, weak hairs to shed at once rather than a little each day as occurs in the normal hair cycle. This is a normal occurrence and indicates that the HairMax is beginning to exert its effect. This initial shedding should stop and new thicker pigmented hair should start to come in after a couple of months. However, everyone reacts differently, so be patient!

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

      I am considering buying hairmax and have a similar concern about the shedding phase.

      I am a 28yo male with no visible hair loss, despite my hair is starting to thin out at the hairline. I would like to use hairmax to slow down loss of hair and possibly reach at least middle age without any visible scalp!

      The part I am concerned about is the shedding phase: would the use of hairmax result in shedding which is evident to other people? What is the general experience about this?

        Hairmax lasercomb and shedding

        Hi Lavadrop -

        Thank you for your post.

        The initial shedding with the HairMax varies with every individual. Some users experience initial shedding and others hardly notice it. However, the shedding is temporary and we encourage people who want to use the HairMax to think of the long term benefits of treatment. In other words, while you may experience some early shedding, the long term benefits of hair regrowth or prevention of further hair loss should out weigh this initial occurrence. You are the ideal age and stage of hair thinning to begin treatment, but the longer you wait before starting to do something about it will only make it that much more difficult to get relief as the condition worsens.

        We recommend that you try the HairMax and see if shedding occurs and if it does and you are uncomfortable, then you can stop using the device and you will no longer experience shedding.

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