    Default Proper Use

    Good day,

    I just recently purchased my hairmax and I had a quick question regarding proper use. In the instructions it notes you should alternate running the hairmax comb starting from front to back and then side to side. I was wondering if it's still as effective if I did three passes from front to back consecutively first: one down the middle, and one each on the left and right side starting at the corner of the hairline (temple) and then moving backwards? After that I proceed to move to the side to side pass.

    The reason I ask is that my thinning is occurring mostly at the temple region and the top (crown) of the head. I feel I get those regions best by doing three front to back passes but obviously I want to use the product in its most efficient matter so I'm just curious if it would make an appreciable difference.

    Thanks,

    GCM

    Default Proper Use Of The Hairmax Lasercomb

    Hi GCM -

    Thank you for your post.

    The key to successful application of the HairMax is to assure that your scalp is bathed in the laser energy of the device. Therefore, how you apply the device every other day is up to you. We do recommend that you cover your entire scalp, not just the affected areas as the HairMax can prevent future loss in those areas not showing hair loss.

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

    Default Spacing of lasers

    Hi, instructions for use on the version I have is front to back, bottom to top etc!

    My question is, the lasers are spaced out on the comb, how powerful are the lasers in the not as bright surrounding light areas of the laser.

    On the skin there are gaps between each laser, moving backwards, or bottom to top and moving half inch at a time does not account for the gaps, weaker spots of the edge light laser missed on the skin?

    So would you do front to back sweeps followed by smaller sideways increments, so in effect some of the skin that was in the weaker part of the beam are then in the strongest part?

    Not sure if you under stand that, however maybe a random diagram!

    A normal sweep of the lasers, from front of head to back in increments would look like this? Now what about the areas not covered by the weaker parts of the light, the gaps between each laser.

    O O O O O O O O O O O O
    O O O O O O O O O O O O
    O O O O O O O O O O O O
    O O O O O O O O O O O O
    O O O O O O O O O O O O
    O O O O O O O O O O O O

    Would you then do a smaller sweep covering other areas like this? Which would then treat all the skin area with the strongest part of the laser beams?

    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O
    O O O O O O

    By moving only slightly from left to right of the head doing backwards sweeps at 4 second increments, the laser get to concentrate on the skin areas treated only by the weak part of the laser!

    Hope that made sense lol!


    Mmmmmmmmm the diagram did not view as typed, however thanks for the reply!

    Default Hairmax lasercomb laser energy

    Hi mindreader -

    Thank you for the post.

    Once the laser light enters skin, it is scattered within the epidermal (top layer) and into the dermal (second layer) layer. The lasers on the HairMax are spaced in a manner that allows the scattering to provide even distribution throughout the treatment area.

    An easy way to demonstrate this, go into a dark room and place your finger over top the HairMax. You will see even light distribution shining through your finger.

    We hope that this has answered your question.

    Default New Model

    One more question!

    I have very long hair, almost down to my waist, I bought the Hairmax as I have started thinning at the front of the forehead.

    Only in the first week of treatment with the Hairmax, so what kind of shedding can I expect? Just wondering if I should go to a shorter hair style while using the Hairmax!

    Other thing is while doing the treatments, I can only do sweeps from front to back, I cannot do the sideways movements from middle of head down side and vice versa as hair is far too thick and long and lasers dont get to the scalp! So should I just do an extra front to back sweep in the areas already covered? to make up for the missing sideways sweeps!

    Hope that made sense!

    Default Hairmax proper usage

    Hi mindreader -

    Thank you for your post.

    To answer your first question, the amount of shedding that occurs varies by individual and if it occurs, it should stop by week 8.

    As far as using the HairMax correctly, just make sure that you completely cover the scalp in any way you can. You can lift your long hair and part it first so that you can move the device from side to side. However, as long as you cover your scalp you will receive maximal benefit. As far as whether to cut your hair shorter, that is up to you.

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