Perhaps their most desired products, however, are their Lasercomb devices, which use low-level laser therapy (LLLT) to send light energy to your follicles.
As a result, they assure to “revitalize and enliven” follicles, stimulate growth factors, and even reverse the thinning process. This is a process called photobiostimulation, which is similar to photosynthesis used by plants.
HairMax’s Lasercombs are clinically researched and FDA cleared for both women and men. The company also claims that over 90% of the customers face “noticeable benefits” with continued use.
What is a Laser Comb? Hairmax Team
A laser comb is basically an infrared (Low-Level Laser) heated comb.
I know: Hairmax Team
Laser sounds like something that can burn a hole right through your scalp, but laser brushes use Low-Level Lasers that will not burn your scalp and are very safe.
The infrared light stimulates hair follicles (through photobiostimulation) and “wakes them up” back to the hair growth cycle (called the Anagen cycle).
Here’s what occurs:
The process naturally increases ATP and keratin production, which are the enzymes in charge of delivering energy to living cells, including hair follicles.
Low-level Laser Therapy (LLLT) heightens local blood flow, which speeds up and encourages delivery of important nutrients for growing new, strong and healthy hair.
The outcome? Hairmax Team
Fuller, thicker, stronger and healthier hair growth, and reduced hair loss and thinning.
(Along with a little-known bonus: An infrared comb can be quite valuable for scalp eczema and itching. This wavelength is proven to reduce skin redness and itching)
Which Lasercombs Does HairMax Offer?
Below are the four different kinds of Lasercombs in the HairMax lineup:
This Pininfarina-designed lasercomb has 82 medical grade lasers that provide maximum light to your follicles, along with a patented hair parting teeth system that aids to achieve desired results. In actuality, with LaserBand 82, HairMax asserts your treatments can last as little as 90 seconds, three times per week.
Each LaserBand 82 comes with a rechargeable battery, power cord, user manual, and Quick Start guide.
The latest model in HairMax’s lineup, the LaserBand 41 was created for speed, since it can be used in no more than three minutes, three days weekly.
As its name suggests, LaserBand 41 features 41 medical-grade lasers (no LEDs) to stimulate hair follicles at the cellular level, to promote hair growth, and counteract hair thinning. And with its Flex-fit head band design, it should be comfy for almost all head shapes and sizes.
LaserBand 41 is also lightweight and portable, which makes it ideal for traveling, as well as for freedom of movement during use.
Compared to the 82 model, Ultima 12 looks much more like a real comb. With less surface area, it features 12 medical grade laser modules which promises to give a “gentle, nourishing” light to your follicles.
After using Ultima 12 three times weekly for 8 minutes each session, the company asserts you will slowly begin noticing fuller, denser, and healthier hair.
Your Ultima 12 Lasercomb will include a charging stand, deluxe storage case, power cord, user manual, and Quick Start guide.
Features 9 medical grade laser modules. When used three times per week for 11 minutes each session, HairMax states that Ultima 9 can promote new hair growth, greater density, and healthier, fuller, more attractive-looking results–in just a few weeks!
Each Ultima 9 comes with a storage stand, power cord, user manual, and Quick Start guide.
How Does the HairMax LaserComb Work?
The HairMax Laser Combs are designed for individuals experiencing androgenetic alopecia. This is a medical term for genetic hair loss. Treatment is self-administered. The laser comb is combed through the hair 3 times per week for around 15 minutes. Bonus: your arms will grow bigger after 45 minutes of weekly brushing. Pass the comb over the scalp region that’s going through the miniaturization process. Ideally, this counters the thinning process. Instead of hair becoming finer and ultimately falling out completely, they will begin to get thicker. This will give you more scalp coverage and a healthier looking head of hair.
Laser comb for hair loss you say? The word laser throws off a lot of people in the beginning. Is this something that will burn a hole through my head or burn my scalp? Don’t worry, friend. They are not going to zap your brain. These combs apply low-level lasers. These lasers invigorate hair follicles into a growth cycle similar to a product like Rogaine. This growth cycle is also popularly known as the anagen phase you may have heard about. HairMax calls this process “anagen induction.”
If you wish to talk about the technical language, this biological process is called PhotoBioStimulation. This increases adenosine three phosphate (ATP) and keratin production. Enhancing cellular metabolism and activity, these two coenzymes are accountable for intracellular energy transfer as well as being known for stimulating living cells like the hair follicle cells.
The other mechanism that these low-level laser treatments are liable for is increased blood circulation. Hair follicles require several nutrients to grow strong and healthy. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) gets in the way of this delivery system. The laser comb helps ensure nutrients are delivered more efficiently to hair follicles and also removes said DHT from the scalp.
The HairMax website has a lot of before and after photos. They present success stories and so on. In their expectations and results page they state: When using the HairMAx LaserComb hair loss treatment religiously, 3 times per week, most customers will experience visible results in as few as 12 weeks. In addition to notable new hair growth, customers experience, revitalization of sleeping hair follicles, reversal of the thinning process and increased density and fullness of their hair.

Why FDA Approval is a Big Deal
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is a regulatory body whose major job is to protect consumers from advertising tricks and dangerous products. They handle matters such as food safety laws and dietary supplements. They have a meticulous and thorough application and testing process that companies must submit to which in part, if they pass, can validate their products claims.
As we mentioned, the HairMax Laser Comb is the only hair loss treatment machine approved by the FDA. It’s one of the three hair loss treatment products given FDA approval as clinically proven hair loss treatment methods. The other two treatments granted approval are a topical product called Minoxidil (Rogaine) and an orally administered product named Propecia.
We’ll talk about a little history on how HairMax’s submission to the FDA was approved. Lexington International LLC conducted a research study in U.S.A. This clinical study was performed in four different regions. In the end, this research study found that 93% of participants using the HairMax Laser Comb had a decrease in the amount of terminal hairs. That means these participants who were aged 30 to 60 increased the number of thick hairs. This increase was an average of about 19 hairs/cm over a six month period. So for each square centimeter of scalp, there was an additional 19 hairs in participants that used the laser comb.
This FDA approval only covers HairMax LaserCombs produced by Lexington International LLC.

Cost effective: Cost effectiveness is one of the additional benefits with laser combs, compared surgical methods. With hair transplant surgery, you may need a few sessions with the surgeon that will cost a lot of money. To the contrary, a laser comb is a one-time investment which could be used only when it must be used.
Easy usage: The laser combs are as simple as combing your hair. You need to just simply switch the machine on and brush it right through your hair.
Discreetness: Unlike other hair loss treatments, this hair loss solution is discreet. You may use it in the comfort and in the privacy of your own home.
FDA Approved: For safety
Cons Hairmax Team
Method: It is quite important to utilize laser combs as directed in order to get desired results from it. If you aren’t using it correctly, you might not find any results.
Regular usage: Laser combs require routine usage to find effective outcomes. For this, you require a little patience.
Minor itching and irritations: This is because of the increased blood circulation to the scalp and the hair follicles are being invigorated.
