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.”

  • Worked good for a bit but now im noticing alot of thinning

    i have been using it for about 4 months now, at the beggining it was working well i could notice little hairs comming in but now im noticing alot of hair to start falling out more and more. I am only 17 years old was it to early to use it? i had noticed i was losing hair before but now its getting worse so im deciding to get provillus will i be able to use both products?

    I might know the reason for such hairloss all of a sudden could it be from me keeping it on one spot for to long becuase i usually keep it for 3 beeps should i just do 1 now for maybe better results?

    Hairmax Lasercomb Usage

    Hi Soccer88 -

    Thank you for your post.

    To begin with, 17 years old is not too young to begin using the HairMax LaserComb if your hair is beginning to thin or fall out.

    You can use the HairMax with all other hair treatment products since they have a different mechanism of action and will compliment the results from the HairMax. For best results, place the HairMax at one location on your scalp and when you hear the beep (which is after 4 seconds), move to the next site, etc.

    It is also important to realize that even when using the HairMax, your hair goes through cycles of growth, loss, resting and regrowth, so you may be in the cycle of hair loss where you are experience greater shedding. Also, if you were not using the HairMax it is quite possible that hair loss would be much greater than it is while using the HairMax.

    We wish you continued success with the HairMax LaserComb.

        Hairmax Lasercomb Usage

        Hi Soccer88

        Thank you for your post.

        It is never too early to use the HairMax.

        It is important to realize that use of the HairMax will not only regrow hair lost, but will prevent excessive hair loss. You may be losing your hair from normal hair cycles and if you were not using the HairMax you would be seeing much more hair loss than you are now experiencing.

        We recommend that you continue to use the HairMax fand by 6 months you will be better able to judge the results.

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