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 Featured on Dr. Oz TV Show

    Lexington Int’l is pleased to announce that on a segment of the Dr. Oz show televised on October 22, 2010 on hair loss in women, the lasercomb featured and discussed was in fact the HairMax LaserComb®. The HairMax LaserComb is the only home use laser phototherapy device with published proof of efficacy and is also the only device of its kind to have FDA Clearance for marketing for the promotion of hair growth in males. As mentioned on the show, the HairMax helps to provide the building blocks and energy necessary to transform weakened hair follicles which stimulates them to grow healthy, more vibrant hair.

    While the HairMax presently has clearance for marketing for males with certain classes of male pattern baldness, clinical studies on the use of the HairMax in females were recently completed and preliminary results, clearly show that the device is effective in promoting hair growth and cessation of hair loss in women with certain classes of androgenic alopecia.

    Also, on the segment was a dermatologist who featured a hair building fiber product that blends and statically cling to existing hair to hide any receding or areas or bald patches. While the product shown was not manufactured by Lexington, the company does manufacture a product for hair loss concealment, the HairMax Hair Fibers™ which are available in 8 blendable colors. This product can be purchased on the web site

    We are pleased to see that in the segment discussing hair loss in women on the Dr. Oz show the lasercomb device shown, was the HairMax LaserComb because the HairMax is the ONLY device of its kind on the market that has been proven to work and has FDA Clearance for marketing. In the ten years that the HairMax has been on the market, thousands of women have chosen to use the device to successfully treat their hair loss condition. We hope that this segment which featured the HairMax LaserComb will make many more individuals with this condition aware that there is an effective medical device on the market that actually works to treat hereditary hair loss.
