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.”

  • My Story/Blog/Progress - HairMax Laser Comb Ultima 12 - Chronic Telogen Effluvium

    Apologies if thread in wrong place,

    I bought the Laser Comb after much kind of wish I’d bought the Laser Band 82 but thought that because I have long hair: the parting of it, and thus; targeting the scalp, would be easier with the comb. Reason I now wish I’d bought the Laser Band is the my hair is so fine that the lasers would’ve reached the scalp anyway - I know that now, ho hum, but; it’s OK because it’s only 8 minutes or so to work through my scalp.

    Day One:
    Activator: I used full system of Density kit including the Activator (Follicle Booster) was worried that the Activator serum would make my hair look greasy but it doesn’t at all - I tend to never wear my hair down anyway because of the thinning and quite honestly it really doesn’t look bad - so that alone has made me feel better about using it daily.

    Shampoo and Conditioner: Nice smell and feel - didn’t make hair look any thicker straight away - on second use I added Phillip Kingsley Hair Daily Defence spray (for protection against heat from hairdryer) and Hair Maximiser, these products are nice for fine hair because they don’t weigh it down, and hair seems much thicker, genuinely. I also used the Follicle Booster/Activator on damp hair before drying it which is an alternative to those that don’t want to use it on dry hair if going to work or out afterwards and want hair down.

    Revitaliser: This is really great stuff - after I’d dried my hair; my scalp had less spots on it - these get itchy when I need to wash my hair.

    Am now due to laser for the second time this week - head is a bit sensitive as it needs a wash. As I’ve read with Rogaine, and had other advice from hair loss clinic; it’s OK/advisable not to wash hair too often so, rightly or wrongly, I’ve decided to use the system 3 times per week, on the days I laser, and use the Activator daily. [Note: it is OK to wash your hair as many times as you like - LAS] I think in future I will use the laser before I wash my hair because it was a bit of a pain when it was puffed up, thicker, from washing it.

    Obviously; my experience is personal to me but I do have chronic TE, following a major life changing accident (rendered paraplegic), when I think back though; my problems started when I was much younger, my brother died unexpectedly, and suddenly, which practically ruined my life for over 10 I struggle with nutrient absorption (gut issues), I have a lot of physical stress and erratic sleep patterns - oh yes not forgot to mention meds...none of these things I can eliminate completely though I do try. So this, I guess, is damage limitation - Always had fine hair but when not shedding/post shedding it looks quite nice, I’m happy with it.

    To those with chronic TE - I hope that my blog will help you to decide if this will work for you...I’ll update Monthly or so

      Amazing thread!

      I cannot wait to get your reviews in installments.

      The amazon reviews for this product are not nearly in depth enough. Good and bad.

      This is exactly what I was looking for.

      Thank you so much. Please keep it coming!
