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.”

  • hair max + ayurvedic herbal hair oil


    I'm using hairmax for the past one month. earlier i was using ayurvedic herbal hair oil. Should I continue using ayurvedic hair oil when treating the scalp with the Hairmax?

    I see people talking about using minioxidil along with hair max and you have mention both work in two different ways and it may be beneficial.

    If the new hairs in the bald area is brought by minioxidl and if i stop using minioxidil and continue HairMax can the HairMaxretain the hair brought by minioxidil.

    Hairmax lasercomb efficacy

    Hi inbaa -

    Thank you for your post.

    You can continue to use ayurvedic herbal hair oil along with the HairMax, however, we recommend using the HairMax before applying the oil to be sure that the maximal laser energy of the HairMax reaches the scalp.

    The HairMax can help to retain the hair grown by minoxidil and help stimulate further hair growth. However, if you are using minoxidil along with the HairMax and you wish to discontinue minoxidil, we suggest that you stop using it, but if you notice more hair shedding at the areas that were successfully treated with the drug, then you should return to using both the HairMax and minoxidil together once again.

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

      Thanks for the reply and suggestions. As of now, i'm not going to use minioxidil (worried about the side-effects and the dependency).

      I will apply the ayurvedic herbal hair oil in the evening and after half-an-hour i wash it with sulfate-free shampoo.

      Before i use the laser comb, i will make sure that my scalp is oil free and clean.

      On Monday, Wednesday and Friday I use the Lasercomb for 15 minutes. .

      I have plans to buy HairMax Shampoo and conditioner. do you have any offer the customer who bought Laser Comb. [/SIZE][/FONT]

        My doctor said, all the hair care production should be free from sulphates and parabens. While the HairMax products are free of sulphates, they contains parabens.

        In regards to the treatment with hairmax Laser. I'm getting lot of white flakes on my scalp, it doesn't look like dandruff, it is white in color and very light weight. May i know the reason for this. and is it a good sign. because i never had this.

        Since i started using laser comb, i dont grow my hair long, i trim the hair every week (not shaving)to the zero level, just to notice the difference after the treatement and it would be easy to find the new hair coming out.

        My treatment regimen in the 4th Week

        Monday, Wednesday, Friday - HairMax Laser 15 Minutes.

        Every day Evening - Ayurvedic hair oil Application (30 Minutes.) followed by Ayurvedic AntiDandruff Shampoo wash (SLES and Paraben Free)

        Please let me know, if my regimen is right.

        Thanks in advance.

          Hairmax hair care products

          Hi inbaa -

          The issue of paraben sensitivity in products was a big issue a number of years ago, but recently was found not to cause as much sensitivity as previously thought and much fewer people react to them. The parabens are used as preservatives in some of our Hair Care Products, but in very minute amounts. The signs of paraben sensitivity would be increased redness on your scalp.

          As far as the flaking on your scalp, the HairMax LaserComb and the HairMax Hair Care products are helping to not only promote hair growth, but also contribute to overall scalp health. This may be why you are seeing the flaking on your scalp which is also a sign that the HairMax is working.

          Finally, your treatment regimen sounds just right so we suggest you continue with it.

          We wish you success in your treatment with the HairMax LaserComb and the HairMax Hair Care Products.
