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 laser comb Vs Salons Hair laser treatments

    Hi there...

    I am new to your forum and want to wish you and the users all the best.

    I am suffering from male pattern baldness but still have some tiny tiny hairs but very thin and most at the crown of my head.I have just ordered a hair max laser comb and waiting for it to come.
    I have a few questions for you.
    Is the salon treatment of your hair and sitting under the laser covering your head have many advantages over using the laser comb?
    I find that they are charging astronimal amounts for the treatment and that is why i apted to use the hairmax laser comb.
    Also,I am purchasing the professional 12 model and wonder why it says for salons etc.,and if so does it have any advantage over the lux 9,besides having more lasers?
    I will keep updating once i have my comb and progress with it.
    But thankx for any response.

    Hairmax Lasercomb Efficacy

    Hi Blades -

    Thank you for your post.

    The HairMax LaserComb emits the laser energy that has been proven to promote hair growth in those with hereditary hair loss. The amount of lasers is not as important as assuring that the laser energy emitted is ideal for stimulating hair growth. That is why the HairMax is a great cost effective alternative to salon treatment with laser hoods.

    The HairMax Pro 12 with 12 lasers emits the same energy as the other models, but means that you will spend less time in applying the lasers since the coverage area is bigger.

    We wish you success in your use of the HairMax LaserComb. Remember that it will take probably 12 weeks before you start to see visible results and that you need to use the HairMax for at least 20 weeks to judge efficacy.
