I understand that your device utilizes lower level laser to stimulate hair growth. However, is it possible in any way that it may malfunction into some other form of laser waves that will permanently remove hair, like those removing unwanted armpit hair? I can understand the fear for those who experienced significant hair shedding during the treatment. It's especially horrific for a female like myself who has already thinning hair. It makes me hesitate.

hi marilynm -

Thank you for your post.

The type of laser energy in the HairMax LaserComb is completely different from the Alexandrite, the Diode and the Nd:YAG type of laser energy that removes hair. Therefore, there is and can be no relationship between the energy of the HairMax and these lasers. The wave length used in the HairMax is that which is recognized to stimulate hair growth onlly.

As has been said repeatedly, the HairMax LaserComb does not cause normal hair to fall out, but rather causes the fine, wispy, telogen hairs to fall out and be replaced by anagen hair. This shedding is more pronounced as more hairs are being effected at once rather that those of hairs that are in different stages of the hair growth cycle.

Further, it is important to realize that hair fallout is part of the normal cycle of hair growth, loss, growth, so some shedding can be expected even when on HairMax therapy. It is possible that if excess shedding is occurring, the HairMax has probably prevented even more hairs from shedding.

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

Hi Debyjible -

Thank you for your post.

As we have pointed out numerous times, increased shedding of hair may occur when treatment is started with the HairMax LaserComb. This is a sign that the device is working and is a temporary occurrence that will eventually give way to the regrowth of thicker terminal hair.

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