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 after transplant

    Hi James -

    Thank you for your post.

    There should be no harm in using the HairMax LaserComb after hair transplantation if your follicles are still viable. That said, you must consult your doctor as to whether it is OK to begin using the HairMax LaserComb at the point you are at, to be sure that the teeth device on the HairMax will not harm the new implanted follicles. Many doctors use the HairMax LaserComb without the teeth device to speed healing after treatment, but you are now in the later stages of healing.

    So, once your doctor gives you the OK, you can begin using the HairMax LaserComb but ONLY 3 TIMES A WEEK AND NOT DAILY as you can over-stimulate the follicles which can prevent hair growth, and in about 12 weeks you will know if it is working for you.

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

    HairMax with hair transplant

    I have recently purchased HairMax 12 Pro and have few question on how best to use it.
    I had a FUT hair transplant about a month and half ago and started using monoxide 5% about 20 days ago.
    I went threw the initial shedding after transplant and holding my breath on the result as I've been told I should expect to see some results about 3 to 4 months after transplant.
    The transplanted area is on my front hairline about 2.5 inch wide. The rest of my head is quit bold including the crown.
    I've been told i would need one or two more transplants to cover the rest.
    I am hoping not to go threw an other transplant and maximise my chances and try to regrow my own hair.
    Have you had any query regarding using HairMax after transplant and how would you recommend using it ?
    I would like to use it daily as it is no issue for me. Is there any harm using it daily ?
