HairMax Laser Comb - LLLT (Low Level Laser Therapy) for Hair Loss

Hairmax-lasercombLaser therapy has been offered in salons for years but comes with a hefty fee of up to $300 per session. The HairMax LaserComb is a hand-held device that provides you with continued hair therapy for the single cost of the product.

The comb comes with the comb itself, a convenient carrying case (see photos above), a power supply, DVD instructions, a quick start guide, an all inclusive user instructional manual and two additional replacement combs that can be inserted right into the handle. Basically, the HairMax LaserComb comes with everything you need to start using your new hair therapy device.

Note: Using laser therapy to treat hair loss is incredibly controversial amongst quality hair restoration physicians and veteran hair transplant patients. Thus, we strongly recommend doing extensive research prior to using this product. Read our review of Laser Therapy for Hair Loss.

How It Works:

The HairMax LaserComb rays are directly applied to the scalp so that red blood cells are stimulated, converting ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) to ADP (Adenosine Diphosphate). During this process, energy is released to cause cellular metabolic changes. Additional nutrients and oxygen are provided to the scalp assisting the normal chemical processes performed by those cells, increasing overall blood circulation. Lasers, when applied to the scalp and hair, have been said to improve overall hair quality, promote hair regrowth, and increase hair shaft diameter.

FDA Approval Verses Clearance

Only two hair loss products are truly FDA approved for hair loss which includes Propecia (finasteride) and Rogaine (minoxidil). The Hairmax laserComb device was found by the FDA to be safe based on its "substantial equivalence" to previously approved laser light therapy devices and thus "cleared" (not "approved"). The FDA clearance results for the HairMax LaserComb's effectiveness in treating hair loss have also just been released. To learn more about the FDA standards for "approving" food and drugs and for "clearing" medical devices visit www.fda.gov.

Developing Realistic Expectations:

While it works differently than other products, laser therapy may be as effective as the 2% Rogaine minoxidil solution (link to the 2% Rogaine solution 3 pack product). The HairMax LaserComb doesn't work for everybody and cosmetically significant hair regrowth is extremely rare.
Don't expect immediate results. It's recommended to use your new laser comb for at least 6 to 12 months before determining its effectiveness. Documenting your progress with bi-monthly photos can help you determine whether or not this product is working for you.

To date, only surgical hair restoration is proven to grow hair in completely bald areas. You are invited to have a free virtual consultation with one of our prescreened hair restoration physicians.
