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.”

  • 4,5 months evaluation

    Dear Moderator,

    I have been using the hairmax continuously for 4,5 months now. After the 2nd week of usage my hair was more manageable. In the 4th week of usage i started to have shedded heavily for 2 weeks. It looks now still like all the hairs that i lost did not come back and I can easily pull hairs out of my head what i did not had before. My friends say my hair look thinner, then before using the Hairmax.

    Is the positive effect and the regrowth of lost hair due to the hairmax still possible? And is this normal? Because, at the moment i am thinking of quieting the unsuccessful treatment so far.

    Hairmax Lasercomb And Hair Loss

    Hi Arnte -

    Thank you for your post.

    As we have said a number of times before, the HairMax does not CAUSE hair loss. Rather, the HairMax causes those hairs that would fall out at random times to shed together so the hair loss is more noticable. We suspect that what you are experiencing is a progression of your males pattern baldness. Hair loss can progress while under treatment with the HairMax, however, it is important to realize that the HairMax not only promotes hair regrowth, but also prevents hair loss and slows down the process. Therefore, it is possible if you discontinue the use of the HairMax, your hair loss would be much more severe and you will experience more hair loss than you are now experiencing.

    We recommend that you continue to use the HairMax and perhaps also use a product that combats thinning hair as the two in combination may thicken you hair more than each one used alone. Over time, the HairMax can continue to exert its effect and help you maintain the hair that your have.

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