Have you ever wondered why as we age, hair can become thinner and finer, without any evidence of overall pattern hair loss? Its a common story with half of women experiencing hair loss by the time they hit 50! In men the figure is even more...

There are three stages that hair goes through, a growth phase, a transition phase, and a resting phase. As we get older, our hair spends more time in the last cycle (the resting phase), which means you're shedding hair faster than it's growing back. Unlike male hair loss, which usually starts as a receding hairline and thinning crown, female hair loss occurs as a gradual thinning all over the scalp. You may not even notice it coming out in the shower or in your brush — it's just over time, more of your scalp becomes visible! This type of hair loss is called involutional or senescent alopecia which is a natural condition in which the hair gradually thins with age.

The HairMax LaserComb and LaserBands are an ideal treatment for thinning hair, as the devices deliver energy to the hair follicle. The energy increases blood flow to the follicle, brings in more oxygen and nutrients, activates antioxidant defenses, extends the growth phase of the hair cycle, and encourages your hair to grow thicker fuller and stronger. This increased blood flow also speeds up the elimination of waste products such DHT, which helps reduce the damaging effects of inflammation around the hair follicle. All of this creates a better environment within the hair follicle so that it can stimulate hair growth and produce healthy hair, to help reverse the overall thinning process.

In 2009 and 2010 four landmark clinical studies with 225 male and female subjects was completed. The results were published in a medical peer review journal which showed that laser light therapy for hair growth in general, and the HairMax LaserComb in particular, was effective and safe for treatment of hereditary hair loss.

Based on these 4 studies, the home-use HairMax LaserComb and Laserbands were granted FDA Clearance for the treatment of alopecia and the promotion of hair growth in both males and females. There are presently no other devices of its kind on the market that have FDA Clearance for treating hair loss in both men and women.
