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.”

  • I have been having a breakout since using regaine and the activator

    Hi LAS,

    ever since our last talk about my irregular use of minoxidil/regaine, i have been using it everyday along with my shampoo's and activator and i noticed since then i have been getting bad breakouts on my face, could that be an allergic reaction to one of these things? I do suffer from eczema and have very fair and sensitive skin at the best of times BUT i use a cream called daktacort to keep it under control and has worked until now. I really have a feeling i am having a reaction to either the shampoo's for regaine. And if it is the regaine am i pretty much doomed as their was no results from the comb alone?

    Can you please advise?

    Thank you
    David

    Hairmax concommitant treatment

    Hi David -

    Thank you for your post.

    To begin, there may be numerous reasons for your outbreak. The first one that comes to mind is that you may be experiencing a phenomenon called tachyphylaxis to the Daktacort. What this means is that the anti-fungal ingredient contained in the medication miconazole might simply not be working anymore, as your system has 'gotten used to it'. There is no harm to using it, buy you might want to switch to another product that contains the hydrocortisone and another anti-fungal. The second reason you might be breaking out is that you may be sensitive to the ingredients in minoxidil solution that could be running down your face. The best solution to the supposed minoxidil problem, would be for you to try a minoxidil foam product, which keeps the medication on your scalp, prevents dripping, and contains less 'sensitizers' The third reason is that you could be sensitized to the base of the Daktacort, and need to find a more gentle product such as hydrocortisone 1% and a weaker antifungal. . Finally, I do not believe that it is the shampoo or the activator if they are used as directed. However, I recommend that you try the first 2 solutions I offered, then if that does not work after a few weeks, then you can try another shampoo, but my belief is that the Daktacort issue and/or the minoxidil solution problem is probably what is causing your breakout.
