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.”

    You CAN Fight Back Against Hair Loss!

    Hair loss is a dreaded event to many people, but unfortunately if you have the hair loss genes, losing your hair is inevitable. You are not alone as hair loss or pattern baldness affects over 50 million people in the U.S. and many people spend hundreds of dollars on questionable products that claim to effectively treat the condition to no avail. Most annoying is the fact that hair loss is sometimes not taken seriously and is many times the topic of late night comedy. How many of you have heard the trite advice- “Hair loss? – Wear a hat.”

    You can easily recognize male and female pattern baldness (also known as alopecia or common baldness) as it is the most common form of hair loss in men and women. Individuals with male pattern baldness usually start to see a receding hairline with the hair at the temple areas. This is followed by hair gradually receding to form an "M" pattern. As the condition progresses, the hair on the crown of your head begins to thin and eventually this developing bald spot may lead to overall baldness. Over time, hair in a horse-shoe pattern around the sides of the head is all that is left. Female pattern hair loss usually takes the form of overall thinning rather than from receding hair as it does in males. Hair density or the number of follicles per square inch of scalp, usually drops by half or more over a period of several years for those with the condition.

    In addition to the change in hair pattern, there is also a change in hair appearance. Any remaining hair usually is thinner and grows below the normal rate. The shape of the hair often changes from long, thick, and pigmented hair into fine and unpigmented or vellus hair.

    So for you, even though hair loss may be a fact of life, there are some effective treatments to help you fight against it. One such treatment solution is the HairMax LaserComb, a home-use medical device that has been proven to work in clinical studies involving 400 subjects in promoting hair growth and helping to prevent further hair loss. Most importantly, the HairMax is the only device of its kind to have FDA Clearance. It is thought that laser photo therapy applied to the scalp directly by the HairMax affects the hair follicle by a process called Photo-Bio Stimulation, which leads to production of thicker and fuller hair. The nourishing laser light bathes the scalp and the cells of the hair follicles causing an increase in energy production which helps to stimulate hair growth.

    The HairMax is a cordless home-use device that can be used in the comfort of your home. The HairMax is a one-time purchase and does not have to be used with any other products. The device is easy to use every other day (3 times a week) for 10 – 15 minutes a session and you will be on your way to getting back your hair. You can start to see visible hair growth in as little as 12 weeks.

    In the ten years that the HairMax has been on the market, hundreds of thousands of individuals have effectively treated their hair loss with this device. If you are one of the millions of people concerned with the appearance of your hair, now may be the ideal time to take action. You CAN fight back and the HairMax LaserComb, the only medical device proven to work may be the ideal non-drug solution.
