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.”

  • Thicker, then sheds thin, then thicker,

    Hello,

    I have noticed that when I first started using the hairmax comb that my hair got darker within 2 months. At four months I noticed my hair getting thicker. At 6 months my hair was getting really thin. Then about a month or two later it appeared a lot thicker. Now probably about 9 months in I notice a lot more thin spots.

    Is this normal? I understand that shedding is a normal occurrence. But is it normal to be thick and then be really thin, and then again be thick.

    Thanks!

    Hairmax Lasercomb Efficacy

    Hi tennisrwu -

    Thank you for your post.

    It is important to realize that your hair goes through normal cycles of growth, rest, shedding and then regrowth. The HairMax does not interupt these cycles once the device has begun to exert its effect and helped to replace the telegon hairs with thicker anagen hairs, so what you are seeing is a natural occurrence. However, it is important to continue to use the HairMax so that you do not lose an excessive amount of hair.

    Since everyone reacts differently to the HairMax it is unknown if the device will stimulate more hair regrowth after a year of use for you, but continual use will help you retain the hair you have.

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

      Vitamin and diet question!

      Thanks for your reply.

      I definitely notice that the product is thicken my hair. However even though it feels thicker, in the sun you still see the thin spots. Without light it looks like I have a full set of thick hair. I hope this will get better over time.

      I just recently bought your hairmax vitamins. I am very active and am skinny. However I do not eat any veggies or fruit. Just meat and carbs. Also since I am young I do drink a lot of alcohol. I have a feeling this is making my hairloss worse. In addition my left side of my head is perfect where my right side is thinner.

      Is that normal? Do you think by taking vitamins, eating better, and drinking less that I have a better chance. My mom's dad is bald but he has a least a drink or two a day of alcohol and I don't think he has a good diet. I am wondering...

      Thanks,

      Brian

        Hairloss And Diet

        Hi tennisrwu -

        Thank you for your post -

        As far as your questions about diet and hair loss, we do not have the answers, but below are some links that might be informative:

        http://ezinearticles.com/?Hair-Loss-...oss&id=1289433

        As far as hair density being different on each side of your hair, that is just the way your body grows your hair. If you have a tendency towards thinner hair, the HairMax will help thicken it up, but probably not as much as someone who has naturally thicker hair.

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

          Thanks for answering my previous questions. When I started with the comb I noticed great results. But from 9-12 months in my hair is horrible. It is getting really thin all over.

          I have used the comb every other day since a year ago. I thought the comb doesn't loose its effectiveness. But it seems that my hair isn't responding to it anymore.

          Any suggestions. Am I in a thinning stage and maybe it will get thicker?

            Hairmax Lasercomb Efficacy

            Hi tenisrwu -

            Thank you for your post.

            It is important to realize that the HairMax not only helps to regrow your hair, but also helps you better keep what you have. It is possible that while your hair is thinning, the HairMax is preventing more radical fall out. We have found no evidence that the HairMax loses its effect over time, rather experience has shown that continued use can continue to result in further hair growth or prevention of further hair fallout.

            We suggest that you continue to use the HairMax, but add a product that will help to thicken your hair. Also, you might also wish to add minoxidil to your regimen. While the HairMax is proven to work well alone, adding other products that have differenct mechanisms of action can synergize the results.

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