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.

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.”

  • Used hairmax incorrectly?

    Hi,

    I've been using the hairmax for 2 months (3 times a week). However, I misunderstood the instructions and I've only been using it for a minute each time (just running it up and down my scalp once). However, I've still seem some shedding, but haven't had much regrowth yet. I just realized that I'm supposed to do 15 minutes per treatment, and I just started doing that today. My question is: has using the comb less just induced shedding without regrowth, and can I expect regrowth and results better than what I had before I started (now that I've started using it correctly)?

    Hairmax lasercomb and shedding

    Hi adi87tya -

    Thank you for your post

    You are correct that you need to used the HairMax for the time specified in the directions for use to receive optimal results. However, the fact that you are experiencing some shedding, means that the HairMax is beginning to exert its effect even with the short application times. The initial shedding and the beginning of new hair growth in place of the shed hairs is related and not independent of each other, so that shorter treatment times does not mean that the shedding would be there, but the effects of the laser energy would be diminished.

    You may experience continued shedding but you will probably see better hair growth if you use the device for the correct amount of time.

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

      As per the recommendation, I've been using the laser comb for 13-15 minutes, 3 times a week, since late July (whereas before I was only using it for 2 minutes each time). The thing is, I actually keep my head shaved with a razor ( I shave every other day). Is 15 minutes too much if my head is shaved? The reason I ask is, even with a shaved head, I can see that my hair has gotten thinner (esp in the hairline area) since I started it. I would like to see regrowth/improvement soon, but have I used the hairmax for a longer treatment time than is necessary for a shaved head, or is 15 minutes OK?

        Correct usage time for the hairmax

        Hi adi87tya -

        Thank you for your post.

        The treatment time recommended is based on the model you have, i.e. for the 7 beam 15 minutes, for the 9 beam 12 minutes and for the 12 beam 8 minutes. These are only guidelines and if you are using for 15 minutes that is fine. There is no difference in application time recommendations if you have hair on your head or you shave your hair, since the effect is the same, i.e. optimal delivery of the laser energy to the scalp itself for penetration into the follicle to exert its action.

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