    Default Laser comb caused oily scalp/forehead

    Hi,

    I'm 24 years old, and I've been using the LC for a little more than 2 months now, and I've noticed that my scalp and forehead have been getting really oily recently (I've also been breaking out on the forehead, something that hasn't happened to me for a long time). Could the comb be causing this?

    Default Hairmax mechanism of action

    Hi adi87tya -

    Thank you for your post.

    When the HairMax is beginning to work, the new thicker hair is pushing up and clearing out pathway for the new hair to reach the surface, so you may in the beginning of treatment, notice more oil production. This is a good sign that the HairMax is beginning to exert its effect. The HairMax is not increasing oil production, only opening up the pathway to the scalp which is letting more oil reach the surface.

    We recommend that you purchase a shampoo that is specifically designed for oily hair (there are many on the internet), but do not contain sulfates. This should help control the oiliness and keep it from your forehead where you are experiencing bread-outs from the oil.

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

    Should the oiliness then subside as I continue treatment?

    Hi adi87tya -

    Thanks for your post.

    It is possible that the HairMax in initially clearing the pore, is causing a surge in built up oiliness, but probably your excess oiliness is now part of a normal process. We believe that by using a shampoo that combats oiliness and as treatment progresses, the oiliness should not be as apparent. Therefore, we recommend that you continue treatment with the HairMax in conjunction with a good anti-oiliness treatment.

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

    One more thing: is it possible for the Hairmax, like minoxidil, to cause a "puffy face" side-effect? When I tried minoxidil I had this side effect, and it was bad -- my face bloated up and I got dark circles. I've heard it's due to the vasodilation caused by minox. Doesn't the Hairmax work the same way (vasodilation)? I'm asking because I've also noticed this recently in addition to the oily scalp, and I'm not sure if it's the laser comb.

    Default Hairmax lasercomb lack of side effects

    Hi adi87tya -

    In answer to your question, the HairMax will NOT cause any side effects like minoxidil. People sometimes, but very rarely, get some initial itching or tingling which disappears soon after treatment begins.

    We with you continued success in your use of the HairMax LaserComb.
