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.”

    Hairmax laser devices and pregnancy

    Hi Lesley London -

    Thank you for your post.

    For obvious reasons, there are no studies on the use of HairMax laser devices during pregnancy. Therefore, as will all drugs and devices, we recommend that you consult with a physician for advice or wait until after you have give birth.

    Hairmax lasecomb efficacy

    Hi Angelena 44 -

    Thank you for your post.

    The HairMax LaserComb has an excellent safety record as there have never been any reports of serious side effects occurring. Other lasers with different wave lengths, used for completely different purposes may have a different safety profile.

    So, you can use the HairMax with confidence in its quality, efficacy and safety.

    Hairmax efficacy and safety

    park2peak -

    Thank you for your post.

    We base the safety record of the HairMax LaserComb on the fact that in 7 clinical studies with 460 subjects and from the over 11 years the product has been on the market and used by hundreds of thousands of people, there has NEVER been a report of any serious side effects occurring. In fact in the clinical studies the incidence of minor side effects was the same in both the active and the placebo device arms of the study. There have been a few reports of very minor itching and redness from a small minority of people which usually disappear from continued use of the device.

    As with any drug or medical device there is NEVER a guarantee that NO side effects with ever occur, so experience from clinical trials and in-field use in the best predictor of the safety profile of a drug or device.

    Will the lasercomb have any effect on me?

    Hi there,

    I'm a 21 year old male, with fine hair and high hairline. Haven't experienced hair loss though, but will the haircomb do anything for me, like making my hair thicker?
