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.”

  • collagen after 3 wks of hairmax

    I have been using hairmax now for up to 3 weeks. I have noticed that my hair is more shiny and the hair it self is getting darker and thicker I reckon . However, since 5 days i have been loosing more hairs as i did before, so some shedding I guess. Not a big issue however,the aspect is that the hairs that are letting lose have some yellow substance on it (collagen??). In some causes the collagen is hard and other causes it is soft. In some occasions I can feel it when going with my figures over my head, if feel some hard stuff around the hair.

    Is this normal and will this go away over time? So should i proceed with the hairmax?

    Kind regards,
    Arnte

    Hairmax Lasercomb Efficacy

    Hi Arnte -

    Thank you for your post.

    What you are seeing on the hairs that you are losing is sebum and is a natural secretion of the hair gland. The HairMax has been reported to help alleviate dandruff in many users and that is because the device sheds hair with excess sebum attached. This is normal and is an indication that the HairMax is exerting its effect.

    We recommend that you continue to use the HairMax and such use will only help to further normalize your hair.

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

        Hairmax Lasercomb Initial Shedding

        Hi Arnte -

        Thank you for your post.

        Initial shedding when you begin using the HairMax LaserComb should stop after 4 to 6 weeks. However, it is important to keep in mind that part of the normal hair cycle is shedding, so it is possible that the shedding could be caused by the natural hiar cycle and not from the HairMax.

        It is important to focus on the results of 20 weeks of treatment with the HairMax so that you are not focusing on the beginning stages of treatment. By that time you should be seeing results from the device.

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

          Dear Moderator,

          I forgot to mention that I did have seborrhoic eczema, which was sort of gone. However since using the Hairmax that has returned now for 3 weeks and caused a lot of hairlose. This due to the hard stuff which is on nearly every hair that is falling out at the moment at the buttom of the hair roote. What should i do?

          Kind regards,

          Arnte

            Hairmax Lasercomb Use

            Hi Arnte -

            Thank you for your post.

            We suggest that you use a good anti-dandruff shampoo on a daily basis to rid your self of the dandruff buildup. Once that is gone you should continue to use it on a daily basis then use the HairMax after you use the shampoo. If your dandruff condition persists you might want to consult your physician for treatment options.

            We wish you continued success with the Hairmax LaserComb.
