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.

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.”

  • Rubbery comb of LaserBand 82 pulls hair

    Hi,
    I have a HairMax laserband 82. The teeth are rubbery and when I follow the instructions and try to "glide" the band through my hair, the teeth pull my hair. It hurts, and it also pulls some fine hairs out. I think it may be damaging the hair as well. I am female and my hair is about shoulder length, layered. I understand that rubbery teeth are more comfortable for some because they are more flexible, but for me, smooth teeth would be more comfortable. Do you have a comb attachment with smooth teeth? Thanks.

    Hi Shiela -

    Thank you for your purchase of the HairMax.

    Our suggestion is to not glide the device through your hair if it is long. Better, to lift the device slightly and gently move it to the next location. All you need to do is to have the teeth touch your scalp for optimal delivery of the laser energy to your scalp and then the follicles.

    We wish you success in your treatment with the HairMax laser device.

      Can I remove the teeth?

      Would it be okay to remove the teeth all together and comb my wet hair, then glide the bare laserband over my head? I would then comb my hair in a different spot, and repeat over and over.

        Hi Sheila -

        Thank you for your purchase of the HairMax.

        Yes, you can use the device without the teeth, but for maximal, it would be wise to use your fingers to part the hair at each area you are treating.

        We wish you success in your treatment with the HairMax device.
