“Hair loss amongst women is a growing concern”, says Dr. Matt Leavitt, Medical Advisor to Lexington. “In the past, women had only one FDA Approved drug ingredient to treat their hair loss. Now they have a clinically proven viable alternative. Upon review of Lexington’s extensive clinical studies on female hair loss, the FDA has granted Clearance to this exciting new treatment option. I believe the HairMax will be able to offer help to the millions of women suffering from hair loss.”

The last hair loss treatment for women to be approved by the FDA was minoxidil, which came to market for females in 1988. The HairMax is now the first non-drug, home-use OTC medical device cleared to treat the estimated 80 million men and women suffering from hereditary hair loss.

The HairMax Lux 9 is indicated to treat Androgenic Alopecia and promote hair growth in females who have Ludwig (Savin) Scale I-4, II-1, II-2 or frontal and Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-IV.

What Causes Female Hair Loss?

· Aging

· Changes in the levels of androgens (hormones). For example, after reaching menopause, many women find that the hair on their head is thinner, while the hair on their face is coarser.

· Family history of male or female pattern baldness

· Damaged hair due to coloring or chemical straightening treatments

What Are the Signs of Female Pattern Hair Loss?

Hair thinning is different from that of male pattern baldness. In female pattern baldness:

· Hair thins mainly on the top and crown of the scalp. It usually starts with a widening through the center hair part.

· The front hairline remains

· The hair loss rarely progresses to total or near total baldness, as it may in men

Clinically Proven

The results of a double-blind, device-controlled clinical study conducted under Good Clinical Practices showed that 100% of subjects on the HairMax Lux 9 experienced hair growth at 6 months. Furthermore, over the same period of time, females using the HairMax Lux 9 grew an average of 20.5 hairs per centimeter squared, which is considered medically and scientifically significant. Most importantly, over 70% of the subjects using the HairMax Lux 9 reported improvement in thickness and fullness of their hair. No serious side effects occurred and there were no other types of side effects caused by the HairMax Lux 9 in the study.

The HairMax LaserComb Lux 9 clinical trial was conducted at five research locations in the United States. The investigators were, Janet Hickman, MD, Michael Jarrett, MD, David Goldberg, MD, Jose Mendez, DO, and Abe Marcadis, MD. The double blind study compared the HairMax Lux 9 to a control device so that the investigator, the subjects, nor the evaluator of the hair counts knew which device the subject was using. The protocol for the study was approved by an IRB (Investigational Review Board) and monitored by a CRO (Contract Research Organization). The trials were listed on www.clinicaltrials.gov which is a registry of federally and privately supported clinical trials conducted in the United States and around the world.

How Does the HairMax Work?

How does the HairMax LaserComb work so effectively? It harnesses the power and technology of laser light. The HairMax delivers safe and effective laser energy to stimulate dormant and active hair follicles. The most common example of light being converted into cellular energy is photosynthesis; where plants convert light into cellular energy. Scientific studies on hair cell cultures have shown that laser light penetrates into the hair follicle and increases the action of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), a molecule that is a major carrier of energy in all living cells.

The HairMax Lux 9 is easy to use. Just treat your hair for 11 minutes, every other day, in the privacy and convenience of your own home.

The HairMax LaserComb is most effective in early to moderate stages of hair loss. By using the HairMax men and women can experience positive results and feel better about themselves and how they look.

Safe to Use: The HairMax Lux 9 complies with FDA requirements for laser safety. There has never been any reports of serious side effects occurring either in clinical trials or in the 10 years the device has been on the market. The HairMax uses a patented technology to part the hair allowing the focused laser energy to reach the scalp. The laser is most effective when it has an unobstructed path directly to the hair follicle. Through extensive research, Lexington has determined the optimal wavelength and energy level needed to deliver maximum results. Lexington’s continued dedication to consistent innovation ensures that users are always receiving the latest in laser hair technology.

In April 2011, the FDA also granted Clearance for marketing for 3 new models of the HairMax LaserComb for male pattern baldness.

Since 2001, Lexington has completed a total of seven clinical studies with 460 subjects. All of the studies have demonstrated the efficacy and safety of the HairMax LaserComb family of FDA Cleared devices. These statistically significant clinical study results validate the fact that the HairMax should be considered as a first line treatment for appropriate people suffering from hereditary hair loss. "
