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.”

  • Minoxidil/Rogain & Hairmax Laser Comb Combination & Use

    Hi.. I have just got the Hairmax Laser Comb. I am already using minoxidil from last 3 months and the effects are very good. I have researched that combination of both can be awesome. My question is that when I have already seen the shedding period in the start of using minoxidil then still If i use laser comb, will i see the shedding again or not?? The new hair which came from minoxidil are thicker and stronger already.
    Also I want to know how to use the laser comb in between using the minoxidil two times a day. Is it must to wash hair if i have already applied minoxidil? because the minoxidil layer can block the laser to reach scalp?
    If after i am very satisfied by the results is it ok to disconnect using minoxidil and only use laser comb twice a week to just maintain what i have got?? I do not want to stay on minoxidil forever though it has given me great results in 3 months.

    Hairmax lasercomb and minoxidil

    Hi Sam -

    Thank you for your post.

    If you have already shed hair with minoxidil, you should experience minimum or no shedding when you add the HairMax LaserComb to treatment.

    We suggest that you first apply the HairMax on those days that you will be using minoxidil (HairMax is 1 time, 3 times a week), then you can apply the minoxidil. By treating yourself this way, the follicles will be exposed to the laser energy, and subsequent application of minoxidil will not have to be washed off except during your normal shampooing.

    Once you feel you have achieved the results you are looking for, we suggest that you 'back off' the minoxidil slowly. That is, go to once a day use and see if any shedding occurs. If it does not, after a while you could try to discontinue minoxidil, but if excess shedding occurs, you would then have to go back to using it. It is important to realize that everyone reacts differently, so the only way to know if you can discontinue minoxidil is to see if no excess shedding occurs as you cut back or discontinue usage..

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