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.”

  • 3 months using Hairmax and hesitant

    Hi,
    I have been using the Hairmax Laser Comb for 3 months and have been loosing significantly more hair during the past 3 months than ever before. However, I have noticed that the hair I am loosing does not come out with the root, which makes me belive that the old hair is being pushed out by new hair as described in the information video. It looks like I have much less hair now than three months ago and my question is if the theory that apply is that it has to be worse before it gets better?
    Would very much appreciate a response and guidance on whether to continue with the laser comb or not.
    Thanks!
    Best regards

    Hairmax Lasercomb And Hair Shedding

    Hi TomKG -

    Thank you for your post.

    You are correct is your assumption that you will experience hair loss in the beginning of treatment with the HairMax LaserComb. This amount of time that this occurs during therapy varies with each individual depending on how much fine telogen hair you have. Since hair grows slowly, it will take time to see positive results.

    We recommend that you continue to use the HairMax for at least 6 months in order to judge its efficacy.

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

          Aloha TomTK!
          I think it's safe to say that the laser comb doesn't "kill off" hair. I think that these shedding hairs would be replaced anyways, and that the laser comb can only HELP! I am positive about this product, and even though I am experiencing some shedding, (in sixth week of use), I am looking forward to, "going the distance" to see it through.

          Best of luck to you and think positive!
          Aloha!

              Keep on using it consistently. I have been using it for a year and I am happy with it. I noticed my hair thicker on the 5 month but I have been using consistently and I make sure I move it inch by inch holding it on every spot of my head for 4 seconds.
