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.”

  • Does comb lose power with time?

    I started using comb 3 years ago and had amazing results. I was 40 at the time. Everytime I used it my hair would stand straight up and had much curl to with. I had new and healthier hair grow in all over my scalp. But now when I use it my hair just lies flat and is thinning once again. I am very discouraged by this. I can still tell it is working to some degree, but not nearly effective. I have used rogain the whole time I've used the comb and started using propecia a month ago. I've heard the comb could last up to 10 years, but wondered if it loses power gradually during that time. I really don't want to spend the money on a new comb, especially if it does nothing for me. The beams look strong as ever and I make sure it is clean. I guess maybe after 3 years heredity is winning again.

    Hairmax Lasercomb Efficacy

    Hi iceman40 -

    Thank you for your post.

    The HairMax does not lose power over time.

    What you are experiencing could be a progression of male pattern baldness or it could be that you are in a cycle of naturally occurring shedding.

    It is important that you continue to use the HairMax as you are preventing even more loss of hair than the amount you are experiencing now. The HairMax will help minimize fall out that might be progressing over time.

    We wish you continued success with the HairMax LaserComb.

      Hairmax efficacy

      Hi Labadia

      Thank you for your post.

      Having been to your region in the winter, I know how cold it gets and the lessening of sunshine, and this does definitely affect hair.

      In answer to your question about using other products with the HairMax, the answer is 'yes' you can use other treatments. We suggest that you may want to take a multi-vitamin that is specifically designed to help compliment use of hair growth products. You may also want to use a hair treatment designed for thinning hair. You can use Propecia and minoxidil together with the HairMax, but there are other products that can help treat your hair and an internet search will help you in that regard. The effect of the HairMax over time has shown that results do not diminish over time.

      It is important to realize that even when using the HairMax, your hair goes through the normal cycle of growth, shed, resting, re-growth, so you could also be in the middle of the cycle and experience changes in your hair.

      We suggest that you continue to use the HairMax for at least 6 month to judge final results.

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

        Hairmax results

        Hi Labadia -

        Thank you for your post.

        I tried to contact Iceman40, but find that he is no longer a member of this Forum, so there is no way to get a response from him.

        We have not done formal marketing research yet with those using the HairMax for an extended period of time. We do know from anecdotal reports that those who have continued to use the HairMax for indefinite periods of time, still maintain the results. Therefore, there is no evidence that the laser energy of the HairMax decreases its effects over time.

        We suggest that you use the www.hairmax.com site for testimonials both written and verbal as well as looking at posts on this Forum for answers about long term use.

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