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.”

Telogen Effluvium - is it possible that it will work for me?

  • Telogen Effluvium - is it possible that it will work for me?

    Hello,

    I was diagnosed with Telogen Effluvium last year. Really I think that I’ve had this condition for quite a long time but not really noticed it significantly, then had major life changing accident 7 years ago, hair thinner than ever since then. At the moment my hair is OK but IDK 20% thinner (though hard to judge).

    I wonder if anyone has had success using the laser hair band (82, new model) or, even the laser comb, with TE. I am interested in the newer product, just to note.

    Thanks in advance,
    Kelly

      Hi LAS,

      Thank you for your response, I have read that the laser comb has patented the ‘comb’ feature which helps in targeting the scalp with the laser beam. In my case; I have general thinning, I’ve lost around 15-20% of my hair, but; it is long and I guess I have a lot of it (i.e. there are no large bald patches) - so my question is: whether the laser comb would be a better option than laser band, purely because of the comb feature?

      Or: does the laser band do the same because the lasers are more powerful? Responses appreciated. I really am looking forward to buying a Hairmax device.

      Thanks in anticipation,
      Kelly

        Hairmax laser devices

        Hi Kelly D -

        Thank you for your reply.

        All of the HairMax laser devices emit the same energy level when used as directed. The only difference is in the treatment time necessary for each device. In your case since you have long hair it might be advisable to used the HairMax LaserComb so that you can help part the hair for best delivery of light. Treatment time for the HairMax Ultima 12 LaserComb is 8 minutes 3 times a week, versus 90 seconds treatment time for the HairMax LaserBand 82 or 3 minutes for the HairMax LaserBand 41.

        We wish you success in your treatment with the HairMax laser device.
