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.”

  • can i use the laser comb?

    hi, im a 20 year old guy and i would like to know if i cud use the laser comb to improve the condition of my hair. i do not think i am goin bald because nobody in my family has suffered from hair loss but my mother has slightly thin hair and therefore i have thin hair too. i have medium length hair that hangs just above my shoulders and when i touch the top of my head i can feel my scalp easily through my hair. it is hard to tell if my hair has always been this thin but im worried i could start losing hair, i have also realised that my hairline is not in a straight line and goes up at each side of my head and on 1 side of my temple the hair is very thin and can easily see my head through the hair when i strand my hair up. so although i have not experienced any hair loss i do have quiet thin hair and would like to know if i can use the hair max comb to thicken my hair and just put my mind at ease about any future hair loss or receding that could possibly occur. i am hesitant to purchase a laser comb because i am worried that because im not losing hair that it could have a negative effect on my hair or make my hair shed some how. im willing to pay for this product even if i do not see much progress but would like to hear back from you please, i apologise for the long message but as you can tell my hair means a great deal to me. thanks

    Hairmax Lasercomb Usage

    Hi joee123 -

    Thank you for your post.

    Using the HairMax LaserComb for overall hair health is a great option as it will help you to keep the hair you have and will help to minimize any excess fallout you may have in the future. However, your description of your hair condition may be an indication that you could be in the earliest stage of hereditary hair loss due to its thinness and also the fact that your hair line may have receded a little.

    If you don't have male pattern baldness, the HairMax will not cause shedding as the device only causes that to happen with what is called telogen hairs which are fine and wispy which are a hallmark of the condition. Should you experience any excess fallout when you begin to use the HairMax then you will know that you are in the very beginning stages of hereditary hair loss and the HairMax will help prevent the condition from worsening.

    We wish you success in your use of the HairMax LaserComb.
