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.”

  • Using HairMax only on one spot in the head


    I am 22 years old with thinness in the right front of my head (left side looke fine for now).

    I wonder if I can use the hairmax only in the right side where is the thinness ?

    because all the rest of my head is ok and I don't think I should use it there.

    Please advise,

    Hairmax Lasercomb Usage

    Hi maor007 -

    Thank you for your post.

    While it appears that you are only in the beginning stages of hair loss, it is likely that your hair loss might eventually effect other areas. That is why we recommend that you use the HairMax on all areas of your scalp to help prevent further fallout. Use of the HairMax will only contribute to better overall hair health.

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

      Thanks for your fast respond

      Thanks for you fast respond.

      From what I understand, the HairMax increases the thinness in the begining stages (1-8 weeks) and after that it start to be better, am I correct?

      This is why I affraid to use it on whole on my head and I thought maybe to try it only on the front right and also left (although it betters from the right) places for now, if it will be worse in the back I will use it there - what do you think?

        Hairmax Lasercomb Effects

        Hi maor007 -

        Thank you for your follow-up post.

        The HairMax LaserComb will not cause shedding of terminal or anagen hair. Rather, the device will help to strengthen and thicken these types of hairs.

        However, if hairs are miniaturized from hereditary hair loss and become vellus, then they will eventually be shed from your hair at various times depending on when they are programmed to do so. Eventually, over time, this hair loss manifests itself as pattern baldness. Using the HairMax reprograms these fine telogen hairs to shed at the same time to make way for anagen hair growth and that is why shedding becomes more visible.

        Therefore, if you use the HairMax on your whole head and start to see shedding, you have hairs that are miniaturized or vellus and would have fallen out anyway, but at different times which will eventually will lead to pattern baldness. (If your hair is healthy, these hairs will not shed from HairMax usage). So, the answer to the question as to whether you want to use the HairMax all over your head and "get it over with" as far as shedding of the vellus hairs and begin to regrow hair with the HairMax or whether you want to wait until you start to see real hair loss is up to you. Our recommendation is that the earlier you start, the better the outcome will be.

        We hope that this discussion will help you make a more informed decision and we wish you continued success with the HairMax LaserComb.

          Thanks you for your quick answer,

          I understand what you saying and it helped me to decide.

          I think I will use the Hair Max in the fornt and the middle and don't use it on the back.

          After I will see the result I will continue.
