The HairMax LaserComb is the first FDA Cleared tool that utilizes laser phototherapy to efficiently support hair development and treat hair loss. Laser light directly stimulates hair follicles which then excite growth factors, increasing the growth phase, which then, in turn, helps reestablish a healthy hair growth cycle. The LaserComb produces visible red spectrum light, clinically proven to stop hair loss and encourage hair growth. All living cells respond towards light and hair is no different. The most common example of light converting to chemical energy is photosynthesis, where plants are fed via light converted into chemical energy. This is not exactly how hair reacts but certain light frequencies, particularly red light, help spur growth.

Does the HairMax LaserComb Really Work?

Scientific studies on cell cultures have shown that laser penetrates into soft tissue and increases the action of adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which plays an essential role in all living cells. Functionally a major carrier of energy from one reaction site to another, individual cells increase their activity level due to ATP. Laser light therapy from the HairMax comb also increases blood flow to the scalp that therefore increases circulation in it. This helps with the elimination of DHT, an androgen that causes hair loss.

The HairMax LaserComb also has a patented hair-parting mechanism allowing light to reach the scalp. Because of this feature, hair follicles reap the full benefits of phototherapy. The three cycles of hair growth are the anagen (growth phase), catagen (transition phase), and telogen (resting phase) phases. During the catagen and telogen phases, the LaserComb stimulates the hair follicles, which leads to the promotion of new hair growth (anagen phase).

HairMax LaserComb Side Effects

The catagen and telogen phases of hair growth are shorter than the anagen phase. They are also supplementary to the anagen phase (which lasts for years). After all, hair grows more often than it sheds for near everybody. The HairMax’s laser light therapy initially jumpstarts the catagen and telogen phases’ transition to the anagen phase. Because of this, many people will experience increased shedding upon the initial use of the product. This actually indicates the HairMax LaserComb is working. By getting through the catagen and telogen phases patients are also initiating the anagen phase. This is not to say the anagen phase will be shorter (and it lasts three to five years on average) during use.

Instead, the HairMax LaserComb initiates the two supplementary hair growth phases to get to the primary (growth) growth phase. Further, hair shedding is not the same as hair loss. The latter involves the overall aging of hair follicles, which over time become progressively miniaturized (shorter, more brittle, and thinner) until they disappear altogether. The HairMax LaserComb, by stimulating ATP, actually helps prevent this aging process in addition to encouraging healthy growth.

HairMax Laser Cap

Incredibly useful for spurring hair growth, the HairMax LaserComb still requires manual use. Many people do not necessarily have the time or patience for daily use of the comb. Further, using the comb requires a specific motion that most people are unused to.

A tad pricier, the HairMax Laser Cap is an excellent alternative. A soft yet durable cap, it enables patients to stimulate ATP without any repetitive motions. Wearers enjoy constant laser light therapy without any inconvenience. The headcover is particularly useful for hair transplant recipients. We caution patients to avoid tight-fitting head coverings during the first few weeks after surgery. Loose-fitting on most people, the HairMax Laser Cap spurs overall recovery along with hair growth.

Does HairMax Laser Comb Really Work?

Yes! One study published in January 2014 in the American Journal of Clinical Dermatology showed the laser comb to be statistically significant compared to sham treatment at increasing terminal hair density by week 26. The improvements in hair density were independent of sex, age, and laser comb model, as long as the same laser dose was administered.

The HairMax Laser Comb found in terminal hair count is similar to short-term studies done with minoxidil 5% topical solution or finasteride at 1mg per day; however, the efficacy of the laser comb is not as good as these drugs have shown in longer studies (at least one year or longer). More studies are needed to determine the optimal duration of treatment and response as well as other types of hair loss conditions the laser comb may treat.

HairMax products are not a substitute for hair restoration treatments, outpatient or take-home. However, they are useful supplementary treatment. Minoxidil and finasteride complement each other because they address different aspects of hair loss; encouraging circulation to the scalp and blocking antiandrogens, respectively. HairMax products, as mentioned, both encourages circulation and, more importantly, stimulates ATP. The latter is its particular strength.

Laser Light Therapy Products Has Multiple Uses!

We hope this primer on HairMax products has been useful. Cynics have a hard time believing that light alone stimulates hair growth. However, many experts believe red light laser therapy is effective in promoting overall health. It stimulates mitochondria, making them soak up more energy and promoting cellular repair. NASA has included it in treatments for astronauts because of such. Besides hair loss, research has gone into its effects on dementia, dental pain, osteoarthritis pain, wrinkles, and tendinitis. In almost all cases it improved conditions. For hair loss in particular, as mentioned, control groups that used dummy products instead of the actual laser light products did not enjoy similar results. Many hair restoration experts recommend light therapy for this reason. Additionally, the use of laser therapy has no negative side effects. Patients particularly have nothing to lose in trying out the cap.
