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.”

  • Shampoo, Conditioner, and Hair Color

    That sounded almost like a movie title. LOL!

    Hi Guys,

    I just purchased the Laser Comb through your website, and I am excited but a bit nervous about the shedding. I have thick hair, but I am starting to see some thinning (more like patches) on the back and it appears to be receding around the temple area. I feel lucky that I have a full head of hair for a 40 year old, but I am very active, eat healthy, and I have been taking nutritional supplements since my early 20's.

    I color my hair (only on the sides) to cover the greys twice a month. I use a product from Whole Foods that is very mild (Naturcolor with 3% hydrogen peroxide). Will the hair color interfere with the laser treatment?

    Also, I read for best results the scalp must be clean, so I am assuming I should shampoo the hair and not use any hair products (gels etc.) before using the laser. What about conditioners? Can I use the shampoo and the conditioner before the treatment, or do conditioners have anything in them that might interfere with the treatment?

    Regards,

    Hairmax Lasercomb And Other Products

    Hi shiraaz

    Thank you for your post.

    It is alright to use any shampoos and conditions you like before using the HairMax. However, it is best to use ones that do not have any sulfates.

    As far as the coloring agent, that is also up to you.

    Be sure that your scalp is clean before using the HairMax to provide a clear path for the laser energy to reach your follicles.

    We wish you success in your use of the HairMax LaserComb. It might be a good idea to read information on the device on the web site, to asssure that you will know what to expect from treatment with the device.

      Hi, so I have been using HairMax for about a couple of months. I take a shower first, and use Activance Scalp Activator (about 8-10 sprays) and massage thoroughly on my scalp. Then I use the comb for 15 minutes. I do this 3 times a week. But I haven't seen any visible change. I don't even know if I shed. How can I tell if I shed? I assume I will see hair falling off either during the shower on on my pillow when I wake up. But I haven't seen that. The only change I saw was some itching and dandruf like flakes after about two weeks of using the comb. But that went away and everything went back to normal, and I have seen any visible changes.



      Regards,

        Hairmax Lasercomb Efficacy

        Hi shiraaz -

        Thank you for your post.

        Based on this post and your original one, it appears that you may not be experiencing hereditary hair loss. If you had hereditary hair loss, when you began treatment with the HairMax, you would normally see some increase in shedding - since you do not it may be that you do not have hereditary hair loss. (You might want to consult a doctor for a diagnosis of your hair condition.)

        We recommend that you continue to use the HairMax and Activance as you will be contributing to your overall hair health.

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