Leonard from HairMax LaserComb posted the below comment under my older LLLT post and I thought it deserved its own post. I still find it hard to believe that lasers can do anything substantial for your hair, but hopefully we will get far more evidence for or against LLLT in the future. At the moment, there are very few well designed unaffiliated studies concerning LLLT out there.
I am Leonard Stillman, Director of Professional Services at Lexington International, LLC, manufacturers of the HairMax LaserComb. This post is NOT for commercial purposes, but is to notify your readers of a landmark clinical paper that was published in January 2014, in a peer-review medical journal. The article provides complete information on 4 studies with 225 subjects, which conclusively proved the efficacy and safety of the HairMax LaserComb in treating male and female pattern hair loss.
The article is entitled: Efficacy and Safety of a Low-level Laser Device in the Treatment of Male and Female Pattern Hair Loss: A Multicenter, Randomized, Sham Device-controlled, Double-blind Study
Below is a link to the complete article:
Here are 2 quotes which contain the conclusions of the authors, taken directly from the article:
“LLLT may provide a promising treatment option for patients who do not respond to either finasteride or minoxidil, and who do not want to undergo hair transplantation.”
“Additionally, while topical minoxidil solution or foam is widely used to treat pattern hair loss and is generally well tolerated, the treatment needs to be applied once or twice daily, and be in contact with the scalp for at least 4 hours. Such application can be impractical for many users, leading to noncompliance and reduced efficacy. As an alternative, the [HairMax] lasercomb treatment is safe and easy to apply, with 8–15 min of treatment three times per week, and leaves no residue on the scalp. Such user friendliness of the [HairMax] lasercomb may lead to better patient compliance and improved efficacy.”
