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.”

  • Just received my new HairMax Premium

    After conducting weeks of research between various options to deal with my recent increase in hair loss I decided to purchase the HairMax Premium. I just used it for the first time and I feel slight tingling around the scalp. I read this is normal so no worries.

    Some more about me - I'm 35, have been taking Proscar for 8-9 months and started seeing a dramatic increase in hair loss about 1-1.5 years ago.

    I'll keep the forum posted as time goes on!

    Hairmax Lasercomb Use

    Hi nyujay -

    Thank you for your post.

    Yes, the tingling you feel may be due to the increased blood supply going to your scalp from beginning treatment with the HairMax. This sensation should disappear in time. Also, don't forget that you may see some excess shedding as you begin treatment. Finally, be sure to use the HairMax for a full 20 weeks before judging results.

    We wish you success in your treatment with the HairMax LaserComb.

      Using HairMax with Nizoral

      Hello Again,

      I have a question regarding Nizoral shampoo. I did a lot of research and it seems that it helps in preserving hair and even hair growth (through several longitudinal studies) by containing ketoconazole.

      I prefer to ensure that when I use the HairMax it's on a different day than when I wash my hair with Nizoral. However, if I should use them both on the same day, are you aware of any negative results?

      Thank you very much.

      Jay

        Hairmax Lasercomb And Nizoral

        Hi nyujay -

        Thank you for your post.

        Since Nizoral and the HairMax have different mechanisms of action you can you them both on same day or alternate days which ever you prefer.

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

          Hairmax Laser Comb

          G'day

          I'm planning to purchase the laser comb on line which is much cheaper compare to the store being sold in Australia. Can you tell me how much it will cost me to get the Luxury 9 laser comb if I will order it on line.
