Frequently Asked Questions
1How do I use the HairMax LaserComb to treat my hair loss?
The HairMax LaserComb has been designed with both comfort and convenience in mind. To turn on the HairMax LaserComb press the “power” button and then the “laser” button on the front of the unit. Next, place the LaserComb flat on your head using the two rows of teeth. Rather than constantly moving the HairMax LaserComb through your hair (as you would with a regular brush or comb), you will use what we like to call the “glide” method by placing the HairMax LaserComb on a specific spot on your head and gently gliding it back a ½ inch each time the audible four-second beep occurs. Move from the front of your hairline to the back of your head and then repeat the process moving in the opposite direction. The “glide” method is the best way to ensure that the LaserComb will be as effective as possible for you.
In addition to being very easy to operate, the HairMax LaserComb is also a relaxing and enjoyable product to use. There are no drugs, sprays, topical ointments, or powders to worry about, and it can be used in the comfort of your own home at your own convenience.
2How often do I need to use the HairMax LaserComb to treat my hair loss?
We recommend that the HairMax LaserComb be used 3 times per week, 8-15 minutes per hair loss treatment for optimal results.
3How long will I need to continue my hair loss treatment with the HairMax LaserComb?
Hair care treatment, as with the treatment of any condition, is an ongoing process. For this reason, it is imperative that, to keep seeing positive benefits from the HairMax LaserComb, you use it as indicated on a consistent basis. You can miss a day here and there and be alright, but all in all, if you do not use the product as recommended, there is a strong possibility that you will not see desirable results or you will regress to where you were prior to using the HairMax LaserComb.
4When can I expect to start seeing results from the HairMax LaserComb?
User experience will vary. In general, there are three categories of user experience:
Many users will see positive results after 8 weeks of treatment. More will see benefits from weeks 10-16. A small minority of users will begin to see subtle improvements (if any) after 16 weeks.
5Does hair loss treatment with the HairMax work on the entire head or only on the back?
The HairMax LaserComb may improve the appearance of the entire head: back, front, top and sides
6Why should I purchase the hand-held HairMax LaserComb instead of a hood or helmet-like device?
Hair is a photoprotectant that filters out light from reaching the scalp. Therefore, the hood or helmet devices only deliver light energy to the top of the scalp, which can diminish the delivery of energy. Also, some helmet type devices utilize a combination of LED and laser light as part of their devices, when LED’s have not been proven to successfully treat hair loss. The HairMax on the other hand is a light weight device (1/3 the weight of a hair dryer) that only has to be used 3 times a week for 8 – 15 minutes a session to effectively treat pattern baldness. The HairMax also utilizes only lasers, and has a hair parting teeth mechanism built-in, that automatically parts the hair during use, to assure optimal delivery of laser light to the scalp. Since the HairMax is a hand held device, you have the option of either treating only the areas of actual hair loss or you can choose to treat your whole scalp. Finally, unlike the hood/helmet devices, the HairMax has been found to be safe and effective in 7 clinical trials with 460 subjects, which gives you confidence that the device will work in a consistent and predictable manner.
7I am just starting to notice my hair beginning to thin, is it too soon to start using the HairMax LaserComb?
It is actually never too soon to start. The better the initial condition of your hair, the better your results with the HairMax LaserComb can be. The HairMax LaserComb treatment should be incorporated into your daily preventative maintenance routine, much like brushing every day to maintain healthy teeth and gums.
8Does the HairMax LaserComb work for hair loss in women?
A clinical study showed that the HairMax device is effective and safe for treating females with pattern hair loss. The results of this clinical trial was submitted to the FDA in a 510(k) application and Clearance for marketing was granted for HairMax for the treatment of female pattern hair loss.
9Does your hair need to be clean to use the HairMax LaserComb?
We do recommend that you use the HairMax LaserComb on a clean scalp so that the laser can effectively improve the appearance of your hair without being hindered by oils, dandruff, etc. The reason for this is to prevent product build-up from blocking the laser light. However, you can also address this by cleaning your HairMax with a damp cloth before and after each use.
10How often do you need to wash your hair when you use the HairMax LaserComb?
We recommend that you wash your hair at least three times a week. This way the HairMax LaserComb can work effectively without the possible blockage which comes with having excessive oil build-up on the scalp or excessive dandruff. However, this is not imperative for the HairMax LaserComb to be effective; you can also address this by cleaning your LaserComb with a damp cloth before and after each use.
11Why should I consider using the HairMax LaserComb to treat my hair loss instead of getting my hair loss treatment at a clinic or salon?
Many people do not have the time or the money to undertake treatment of their hair loss at a salon or clinic location. The HairMax LaserComb being a home use device can be used in the comfort of ones’ home at their convenience for safe and effective treatment. Since hair is a photoprotectant that filters out light from reaching the scalp, the HairMax has a built-in teeth mechanism that parts the hair during use to allow for optimal delivery of laser energy to the scalp, unlike hood devices that only deliver energy to the top of the hair. Most importantly, the HairMax LaserComb has been proven in clinical studies to work in treating hair loss from pattern baldness*. The HairMax is the only laser phototherapy device to have FDA 510(K) marketing clearance for both men and women with pattern hair loss.
12How do I recharge the battery in my HairMax LaserComb?
To recharge the Lux 9, simply plug the power cord directly into the HairMax handle or place the device in the charging cradle. The HairMax Advanced 7 runs on 4 AA batteries. When the battery power diminishes, simply replace the 4 batteries.
13How often do I have to recharge the battery in HairMax LaserComb?
The HairMax is equipped with a built-in Lithium Ion battery and once charged can be used for approximately 24 hours of continuous use. When the battery requires charging, the HairMax will turn off and the red laser indicator light will start to blink. It is recommended that you always return the HairMax to the charging cradle after each use to keep it fully charged.
14How long will it take for the HairMax LaserComb to fully charge?
It takes approximately 2-3 hours for the HairMax to fully charge. When charging the indicator light will light up red, once fully charged the indicator light will turn green which means that the device is fully charged and ready to use.
15Is the laser power of the HairMax LaserComb diminished if the battery is not fully charged?
If the laser power diminishes because of low battery the device will automatically power off. If this should happen while in use, simply plug in the power supply and continue your treatment. It is recommended that you carry the power cord with you if you are away from the charging cradle location for an extended period of time.
16What do I do if my HairMax LaserComb has stopped functioning properly?
UITC offers a full 2 year warranty for the HairMax LaserComb. The warranty protects against factory defects and workmanship errors. If your unit has stopped functioning within this time period, feel free to contact our office so that we can personally assist you with your warranty return.
17What is the difference between the 2 models of HairMax LaserComb?
All models of the HairMax LaserComb deliver the same laser energy, but the difference in the number of laser diodes contained in the devices effect treatment time requirements. The more laser diodes contained, the less treatment time is required. Below is a description of the new models:
* The new HairMax LaserComb Advanced 7 model contains 7 laser diodes and utilizes 4 alkaline batteries and a storage stand. This entry level device is excellent for patients with budgetary constraints.
* The new HairMax LaserComb Lux 9 model contains 9 laser diodes and utilizes a rechargeable lithium ion battery and a charging cradle.
18I have seen other laser combs with a much cheaper price on the internet, so why should I buy the HairMax LaserComb?
As with all products, like cell phones and other devices, there is a very big difference in quality, performance, and efficacy. These cosmetic laser combs you see advertised are generally produced by “fly by night” outfits that produce these combs without any standards or procedures. They have not been subject to FDA review and they do not have any proof that they regrow hair. Further, these other devices have significant quality control issues, faulty designs, high failure rates and generally poor customer service, not to mention questionable personal ethics. It is easy to advertise on the internet, but very difficult to produce a quality product that adheres to strict quality standards.
19Is the HairMax safe to use?
In clinical studies and in general use since 2001, there has never been any report of serious adverse events occurring.
20What about visual safety?
The HairMax LaserComb has been specially designed using low power requirements for maximum attention to visual safety. Avoid direct contact with eyes.
21Has the HairMax LaserComb really worked for a lot of people, and if so is there any proof?
The HairMax LaserComb has helped hundreds of men and women to successfully treat their hair loss in the over 10 years the device has been on the market we have a 93% user satisfaction rate.
22How long has the HairMax LaserComb been on the market?
The HairMax LaserComb has been on the market since March 2001. Since that time, there have been hundreds of thousands of satisfied users of the device.
23Is an increase in shedding normal?
A few users report a slight increase in shedding when they first start the HairMax treatments. This is actually a good sign. Your hair grows in three phases, Anagen (the growth phase), Catagen (the resting phase) and Telogen (the shedding phase). At any one time about 10% of your hair is in the Catagen phase, resting in your scalp and waiting to be shed. The HairMax stimulates the hair follicle into an Anagen state and encourages the hair follicle to start a new healthy hair. This new healthy hair will push out some of the Catagen hairs that are in the resting phase. The new hair will be stronger, healthier and thicker. This Catagen hair would have been shed in time anyway.
This slight increase in shedding is only temporary and should not be cause for alarm. During this time it is essential to continue the HairMax treatment and with time you should start to see visual results.
24Can the HairMax LaserComb affect my hair in a negative way?
There have never been any reports in over 12 years that the HairMax LaserComb has been on the market, of the device causing damage to hair follicles in any way. The HairMax merely provides energy to the hair follicle to stimulate the production of hair. If you were to stop using the HairMax, your hair would return to where it would have been had you not been using the device.
25Can I use the HairMax LaserComb to treat my hair loss while I am using the HairMax Hair FibresTM to conceal my thinning hair?
The HairMax Hair Fibers can be used along with the HairMax LaserComb and will conceal your hair loss while you wait for the effects of the HairMax to take place.
26Can people of all ages with hair loss benefit from using the HairMax LaserComb?
Studies have shown that laser phototherapy (LPT) is effective in people ages 18 and older. For people under the age of 18, we recommend you consult your physician prior to using the HairMax LaserComb.
27Can I use the HairMax LaserComb more than three times a week to see faster results?
We have found that three times a week seems to be the optimal amount of usage. Using the HairMax LaserComb more than three times a week has not been shown to accelerate the benefits.
28Can I use the HairMax LaserComb in conjunction with other hair loss treatments?
The HairMax LaserComb works well as both a standalone treatment and in conjunction with other treatments.
29Can I use the HairMax LaserComb if I already had hair transplant surgery?
An increasing number of hair transplant surgeons worldwide have chosen to use the HairMax after transplant procedures. Anecdotal reports have shown that the HairMax LaserComb decreases the recovery time in hair transplant patients, and also increases the look of the transplanted hairs in a positive manner (making them appear thicker, fuller, and healthier). The teeth of the HairMax LaserComb are even removable making immediate use after surgery possible.
