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.”

    Narrow band uvb

    Hi Katie -

    The light source you are using, narrow band UVB is used to treat certain skin conditions other than hair loss.

    The HairMax utilizes laser energy to treat hair loss which is completely different from the light source you are using. Therefore, the HairMax will have no effect on your skin condition.

    We wish you continued success in your treatments with narrow band UVB.

    hairmax vs narrowband UVB

    I finally found out that the light therapy I have been receiving at my dermatologist's is called "narrowband UVB". How does this differ from the HairMax and is it likely to give similar results?
    Thanks.

    Hairmax efficacy

    Hi Katie -

    Thank you for your post.

    The HairMax LaserComb has been proven in numerous clinical studies to be safe and effective in helping to return hair to its normal state. We assume from what you described in your post, that the device you are using in the doctors office has the same laser energy of the HairMax.

    By using the HairMax in Florida that will enable you to continue to stimulate your hair until you return to receive the in-office treatment the doctor has prescribed.

    We do not know what will happen to your hair if you do nothing in the interim, but from experience we know that when people are using the HairMax and they stop, their hair returns to where it was before they started treatment. We do not know if that will happen if you stop using what the doctor prescribed.

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

    How is HairMax different

    I have been receiving "light therapy" at my dermatologist's to help with hair regrowth which resulted from a (suspected) allergy to a colour treatment. My scalp has settled and the dermatologist is pleased with the progress of the light therapy (7 weeks).

    I will be visiting family in Florida for the next ten weeks and will not have access to the light therapy at my Doctor's office. I asked the Dr. about HairMax and whether it would be a good alternative to the light therapy I've been given. He dismissed it as something different than what I was getting at his office...but would not elaborate. I just think that, if HairMax would work as well, it would be easier than trying to locate a dermatogist in my Florida location...aside from the cost incurred (I am from Canada). My Dr. has just said to return to the Light Therapy once I return home. I'm a bit worried about not doing anything at all for ten weeks, especially if I'm making progress...
    Any thoughts?

    Thanks.
    Katie
