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.”

  • original 9 lasermax user

    Hi,

    Quick question on usage. I purchased the original 9 Hairmax laser comb a few years ago but have never used it on a regular basis. I have decided to stop using chemicals and pills and was going to just use the laser comb. Some local salons state that the comb can't be as effective as their laser hoods based on the fact that it is one laser bounced of a mirror 9 times; and if I wanted to equal the lasers 20 minute session at the salon I would have to use the comb for over 400 minutes. My question is have you change the tech since the original?

    Hairmax lasercomb efficacy

    Hi Whairman -

    Thank you for your post.

    Three new models of the HairMax LaserComb were recently cleared by the FDA. They are the Advanced 7, the Lux 9 and the new HairMax Professional 12 beam model which contains 12 laser modules. Unlike the original design which utilized the mirror to emulate the lasers into 9 beams, all models have this new design of individual lasers. You only need to use the Professional model 3 times a week for 8 minutes each session to effectively treat your hair.

    It is important to realize that the number of lasers IS NOT the determinant of successful therapy. All laser devices so matter whether they utilize a hood or are home-use devices have to emit a specific wave length of abour 655 nm to be effective.

    We suggest that you read these article posted on our blog site about this subject:

    http://hairmaxlasercomb.blogspot.com...d-not-all.html

    Another important feature of the HairMax LaserComb is the patented teeth mechanism which enable thw laser energy to better reach the scalp. The lasers in the hood may have problems in delivering maximal energy since the hair can block the light. This is a link to information about that subject:

    http://hairmaxlasercomb.blogspot.com...rotectant.html

    In conclusion, you will be receiving effective treatment with the HairMax just as you would with the hood device, but at a fraction of the cost and a much convenient device that can be used in the privacy of your home whenever you wish to use the device. Who wants to sit under a hood for 20 minutes? And who wants to pay for those sessions each time? We also have a money back guarantee that you can read about on the web site.

    We hope that you will purchase the new HairMax LaserComb Professional 12 and begining the journey to successful hair regrowth.

      I am confused, the 600$ I spent on the original, Why would I have to purchase a new 12 laser, if they work the same? So 4 seconds on the scalp (in each spot for a total of 15-20 minutes) is equal to a laser hood at a salon and my original 9 is good, bad or just needs to be used longer?

        Hairmax lasercomb models

        Hi wairman -

        All models of the HairMax LaserComb put out the same laser energy. The only difference is the more lasers the model has the shorter is the recommended treatment time to cover the affected areas. We recommend treatment of 15 minutes with the Advanced 7beam, 11 minutes with the Lux 9 beam and 8 minutes with the Professional 12.

        Forget all you have heard about equivalency to hooded device as far as time to application. We have proven efficacy with the above treatment times per model at each treatment session, 3 times a week.

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