The new HairMax Laser Comb introduced by Lexington International promotes hair growth. It also prevents further hair loss; thickens hair; improves quality, shine and manageability of hair. It employs Patented Low Level Laser Photo Therapy and is FDA Class-2 cleared. It is an effective, safe and convenient at home treatment with no known adverse side effects. It comes in 4 models: Advanced 7, Lux 9, Professional 12 and Premium 2011 model (each with varying levels of strength).
The device is placed flat on scalp making sure that both rows of teeth touch the scalp. With its Patented Teeth Mechanism and Patented Hair Parting Mechanism, the hair parting teeth push hair aside to create a direct path between the laser beams and the scalp. It is required to move the device very slowly at around half an inch every 4 seconds without lifting it from the scalp. If moved very fast, the treatment may not be as effective. It comes with an automated beep which lets you know when to move the device to the next portion of scalp. It is suggested to use for 10-15 mins a day, thrice a week on non consecutive days for at least 12 weeks.
The mechanism involved is Photo Biostimulation. The laser energy emitted increases cellular metabolism. The increase in blood flow brings the important nutrients into the follicle while taking away harmful waste products. The hair follicle then has the building blocks and energy to transform from a weakened follicle to one that is healthy and capable of producing thick hair.
Recent clinical study in 2007 at 26 weeks with 460 clinical study participants in 6 double blind clinical studies was conducted. They were advised to use the treatment 3 times a week on non consecutive days for 10-15 minutes per treatment. Subjects using HairMax Laser Comb showed 23.3 hairs/sq cm hair growth rate while compared to 0.9 hair/sq cm hair growth rate for a placebo device. Success rate was over 93% and an average of 24% hair regrowth.
Hairmax Laser Comb Advanced 7 comes in $295, Premium Luxe 9 comes in $495 and Professional 12 comes in $545 at Hairmax.com. These products are also available at Amazon, Overstock, Dermadoctor and Sears Marketplace.
