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:

http://link.springer.com/article/10....257-013-0060-6

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 and shedding

    Hi adi87tya-

    The normal shedding that sometimes occurs at the beginning of treatment should subside by week 8.

    It is important to realize that the HairMax DOES NOT cause hair loss. The HairMax exerts its effect by stimulating the hair follicle to shed the fine wispy, miniaturized that are the hallmark of hereditary hair loss, and enables them to grow normal terminal hair. That said, if you stopped treatment with the HairMax your hair would eventually return to where it was before your stopped treatment.

    We strongly recommend that you use the HairMax for the full 20 weeks to judge results. The time you have been using the device is not nearly long enough to judge any results. We recommend that you look at the postings of other in the "Shedding" section of the Forum so that you will know what to expect.

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

    OK -- I have been using the comb on a shaved head for 3.5 weeks now. I've noticed that my hair is getting thinner (even though I shave my head, I can see the stubble very well because I shave every day). It definitely looks different. I thought that shaving my head would disguise the shedding process, but apparently not (at least not to me). I have a question about this: assuming this is the normal shedding that the laser comb initiates, how long should it last? If I quit now for whatever reason, the hair probably would not grow back the same (i.e. it would be miniaturized), right? Generally, does the laser comb stop or slow down the miniaturization process? If the laser comb fails to slow down the miniaturization for me, does it mean that I've just accelerated my hair loss by pushing hairs into telogen?

    Hairmax shedding

    Hi adi87tya -

    Thank you for your post. If you experience any shedding at the beginning of treatment with the HairMax you will notice the shed hairs even if you shave your head as the hair is shedding from within the scalp. The shed hairs would obviously be shorter than if you had not shaved your head. To judge results with the HairMax after 20 weeks, you have to let your hair grow out because you cannot of course, see hair growth when your head is shaved.

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

    "You have chosen a novel way to judge your hair loss. However, you will see some shedding of hairs which are below the surface of your scalp within the follicles. As you aware,this shedding in the beginning stages is a sign that the HairMax is beginning to work".

    Hi -- I don't understand. If you shave your head, should the shedding be still apparent? Will you see a worse MPB pattern develop in your "5 o'clock shadow" than what you already have?

    Hi cukuroc -

    You have chosen a novel way to judge your hair loss. However, you will see some shedding of hairs which are below the surface of your scalp within the follicles. As you aware,this shedding in the beginning stages is a sign that the HairMax is beginning to work.

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

    i suppose i could grow my hair out every 2 months or so, see how it looks & if there are any improvements, and if not satisfied, keep on shaving and using my hairmax. I am actually hoping not to go through the frustration of heavy shedding others have experienced at some point after starting to use this device by keeping my head shaved. Maybe i should use it as directed for a year or so and then let my hair grow. By that time, i should really be able to tell if hairmax has helped.

    Thanks again for your prompt response.

    Hi cukuroc -

    Thank you for your post.

    You could use the HairMax with your head shaved because it is the laser energy that will stimulate hair growth. However, we are not sure how you will be able to tell if the device is working since you will not see any growth when your head is shaved.

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

    Ordered hairmax today.Have a question

    Hi,

    I just ordered my hairmax today, and decided to read some of the posts/questions here. this may already have been asked, but i didn't want to read all the posts on this forum

    My question is: I have a male-pattern baldness, and because it has become so frustrating for me recently, i started shaving my hair. Can i use hairmax and keep shaving my hair, or do i need to grow my hair out first and then start using hairmax?

    Your prompt response is appreciated.
