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 laserband efficacy

    Hi Deep -

    Thank you for your post. We like to keep things simple, the treatment time of 90 seconds, i.e. 3 x 30 second passes is the simplest and most effective ways to use the HairMax LaserBand. This is not a totally exact science, so yes, you could use if for a little more (not a lot) and it won't cause any problems, but we have not studied more treatment times vs. the recommended 90 seconds, 3 times a week. So, that is our best advice, use for 90 seconds 3 times a week.

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

    Thank you!

    You might want to correct the 4 sec mode instructions in the booklet - they show 3 position movements only (not by 1 cm)

    Would 2 passes be harmful if I choose to do so (just in case)?

    I'm asking as my hair is pretty short (2-3 cm) & thin and I'm not sure if the "combs" are removing them 100% from the lasers.

    Would 1 pass of 30 sec mode while moving by 1 cm increments be harmful (that would mean a bit more exposure to some parts than if I used just 3 positions)?

    Hairmax laserband instructions

    Hi Deep -

    We offer the 2 methods of treatment use for the LaserBand, i.e. 4 seconds and move it 1 cm at a time or probably the more convenient one of just 3 x 30 second passes, both just 3 times a week. (You do not have to do 2 passes, as 1 pass with either method is sufficient). Both methods deliver the necessary energy to stimulate the follicles. Which method you use is entirely up to you.

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

    started a topic Laserband 82

    Laserband 82

    Just got the new LASERBAND 82.

    There are 3 types of instructions - which ones are correct and why?

    1) A seal on top of the laserband says: "Move 1 cm after every 4 seconds"

    The instructions book says: use 3 positions only (no movement by 1 cm)

    2) 4-SECOND TREATMENT METHOD: Move device every 4 seconds (whole head covered in 12 seconds). Repeat 6 times (total of 72 seconds)

    3) 30-SECOND TREATMENT METHOD: Move device every 30 seconds (whole head covered in 90 seconds).

    The 30 second method seems most convenient as you will have to keep your hands up constantly for the 4 second method.

    * My first question is, is any of these methods more effective (and if so, why) & what about the seal instructions which say "Move 1 cm after every 4 seconds"?

    * My second question is, would repeating the treatment twice (instead of one session) help (better chance that areas which didn't get exposed first time, will now) or does this result in overstimulation of follicles, which means it has rather a negative effect?
