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.”

    Hairmax Lasercomb Efficacy

    Hi lin2 -

    Thank you for your post.

    The fine small short tiny hairs you are losing are called miniaturized or vellus hairs and these types of hairs are those that are present when you have heriditary or pattern baldness.

    The HairMax stimulates the follicles to shed these vellus hairs in the telogen stage and causes the follicle to enter the anagen phase which is when regrowth of thicker pigmented normal hair occurs. That is why initial shedding can occur when you begin treatment with the HairMax which is a sign that the device is beginning to work.

    We wish you success with the HairMax LaserComb.

      Same Case

      Dear Sir

      I am in the 26th week of treatment. i also experience the tiny thin hair shedding. But other than these tiny hair some long hair (surely not vellus) are also shedding. These hair are thin. Can I assume that these long thin hair will be replaced by thicker hair over period of time of usage. Also can i assume even that now i am using hairmax these hair follicles (thin long hair follicles) will not die and keep growing healthy hair in future.

      Thanks and Regards

        Hairmax Lasercomb And Hair Shedding

        Hi Mumbaiguy25 -

        Thank you for your post.

        Your hair will continue to go through the normal cycle of hair growth, shedding, resting, regrowth even when you are on the HairMax LaserComb. So the shedding that you are seeing is part of the normal hair cycle. Some of your hair follicle will also go into a resting stage before they regrow thicker terminal hair and will appear to be lost, but the hair will return. The HairMax will help to assure that when the hair starts to regrow, it will be healthier and thicker. It is important to continue use the HairMax indefinitely in order to assure that the hair you have grown back and the hair you have will not be lost.

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