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 Comb vs. In-House Laser? Product Combos?

    Hi there, I'm thinking of paying £1300 (about $2000) for a Laser Hair Treatment Programme which comes with their own approved (they say) Minoxidil, DHT Blockers, Shampoo/Conditioners and 12 Months of In-House Laser Treatment. (No Propecia but I could buy it myself)

    I also own a Hair Max Lasercomb, so I'm wondering how the Hairmax combs effectiveness compares to In-House Laser treatment? Is it worth paying the £1300 for all this and use may Lasercomb as well, or would it be better to purchase my own products and just use my Laser Comb?

    I have also had a quote from the Belgrave Center for £259 per quarter, for Minoxidil with added Medroxyprogesterone, and Propecia.But I think Icould probably buy that package for cheaper on it's own.

    Hairmax use with other products

    Hi mbchepburn -

    Thank you for your post.

    It sounds like you are about to embark on a Treatment Regimen of a number of products for your hair and we think that you may be getting this recommendation from Belgravia or some other trichology center. Each product tends to have a different mechanism of action so they can synergise treatment.

    We cannot recommend only using the HairMax LaserComb in your particular case, as it sounds like you have had some expert help in treating your condition with a number of products for a multiple effect. Our recommendation is to follow the instructions you have been given. Using the HairMax between in-office laser treatments can help in your fight against hair loss - it certainly will do no harm.

    We wish you success in your regimen and with the HairMax LaserComb.
