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.”

    Hi Stem -

    Thank you for your post.

    You seem to be taking everything imaginable for your hair loss. I would suggest that you have your physician who wrote the prescription for finasteride, to advise you on which products to use and at what frequency.

    If by now you are not experiencing any hair growth, a review by your physician is recommended as to how to proceed.

    We wish you success in your treatment.

    Hairmax lux 9 in use with other products

    hi i have the lux 9 model which i use every 3 days.Also taking generic finisteride everyday.
    I also have REGAINE for men extra strength minoxidil 5% solution that is recommended every 12 hours.(I normally use this in the night time)
    I have Foligaine shampoo that i use in the mornings as it has 2% Minoxidil solution in it & it does not affect going out with hair prepared
    I also use Nizoral shampoo mon wed friday(in the evening during a shower)after my hair has dried properly i then apply regaine solution.
    I have recently bought a foligaine roller.
    I also have alpecin hybrid shampoo which i use very rarely.
    My hair is thin around the temples & also the "widows peak" area.
    I've been taking the tablets about a year & a lot of these products along side them too.
    i haven't seen any new hair growth in all this time but i havent lost a lot either.
    Can someone help me arrange all these products for me in a way for me to use them efficiently.
    And trying to include the roller into my regime.
    Any advice & ideas would be good.
    Also sometimes i struggle to stick to the 12 hour plan for applying the minoxidil solution due to varying longer times in my work days
