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 along with Minoxidil 5%

    Hi,

    I am already using minoxidil 5% for the last 1.5 years and had seem good reuslts. Want to know if i can use Hairmax along with minoxidil ?
    Using Hairmax along with minoxidil, will it be beneficiary ? Coz what i understand is the way Hairmax laser works (i.e. its course of action) is something similar to Minoxidil (i.e. either shortening telogen or prolonging anage)

    Hairmax and minoxidil

    Hi akhil.agarwal -

    Thank you for your post.

    The HairMax LaserComb and minoxidil have different mechanisms of action and act on different receptors in the hair follicle. Therefore you can use both together for an enhanced effect.

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

      I would like to add to this.

      Let's say someone has been using Minoxidil for a few years and regrown some hair. Then they purchase a Hairmax to add to their regime and eventually ween off Minoxidil to save on money. As mentioned before, they work off different receptors, thus would Hairmax take over the regrown hairs solely regrown years back from Minoxidil alone? I assume you would not lose those hairs because at this point, they are regrown and being taken care of by Hairmax. Correct?

        Hairmax after minoxidil

        Hi Guest12817 -

        Thank you for your post.

        You are correct. The mech of action are similar between the two modalities. Increase blood flow and regulate oxidative stress so you could use the HairMax in place of minoxidil and experience the same results from the HairMax that you had with minoxidil. You may find however, that the use of the HairMax along with minoxidil is providing a synergistic effect, so if you start to experience hair loss again after discontinuing minoxidil then you might with to return to use of both agents together.

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

          Hairmax Lasercomb+ Minoxidil + Hairmax hair care bundle

          Hi,
          I have been using hairmax laser comb for almost 6 weeks, and still waiting for a good result. In order to boost the hair regrowth process i bought hairmax hair care bundle and minoxidil 5%. Before using them together I have few questions.
          In the haircare bundle there is a bottle of hair and scalp fortifier, do i have to use it on the daily basis? do i have to wash my hair before using that, since it is recommended to be used while all the hairs are wet or towel dried. and when can i use Minoxidil? is there any problem with that used with the scalp fortifier?

          Thanks

            Hairmax and minoxidil usage

            Hi Roy -

            Thank you for your post.

            The Fortifier should be used once a day on either wet or moist hair. We recommend that you use both the Fortifier and the minoxidil before using the HairMax. They can be used together without a problem.

            We wish you success in your use of the HairMax LaserComb, however, please be patient and give it the full course of treatment to judge results.

              Minoxdil+ Hairmax Hair Care Bundle + Lasercomb

              Hi LAS
              It is going be almost 14 weeks since I am using Lasercomb and hair care bundle. but within last couple of weeks I started using minoxidil along with them.
              Now not only I don't notice new hairs but also i am losing more hairs. I dont know what to do? should i stop using minoxidle or scalp fortifier?
              I think lasercomb might not be working for my hair loss. I dont know what to do? should i stay with the lasercomb or no?
              Thanks

                Hairmax and shedding

                Hi Roy -

                Thank you for your post.

                To begin with, the HairMax does NOT cause hair loss, it only causes the fine telegon to shed. You hairs on your head are in different phases of the hair cycle. Both the HairMax and minoxidil cause shedding when you begin treatment. When you started minoxidil, you probably began to experience hair shedding from that drug in addition to normal shedding that may be coming from where you are in the stage of hair growth.

                We suggest that you continue with what you are using and the hair shedding from both should cease and normal hair should grow. By using the 2 drugs you are probably seeing less hair loss than you would before you started treatment.

                We wish you success in your treatment.
