When you’re facing hair loss, finding the right treatment option can be difficult. Male and female pattern hair loss are common disorders, but there are only a few effective therapies available for patients. As anyone who’s searched online for hair loss solutions knows, there are plenty of sham products out there vying for your attention and your money. At Vinci Hair Clinic, we encourage our clients to only trust trained professionals who use evidence-based methods to develop hair loss solutions. Luckily, researchers around the world are busy testing and publishing about hair loss solutions, and we want to keep you updated on what they find.
A recent study published by researchers at the University of Miami[i] examined the efficacy of the FDA-approved HairMax Lasercomb® in increasing hair density among men and women experiencing pattern hair loss. The researchers recruited 128 men and 141 women to participate in the study, carefully measuring any changes in hair growth among the participants and a control group on whom they used a sham device. The full study took 26 weeks to complete, and after it was over, the results were promising.
Study participants who were exposed to the laser beams, regardless of age or gender, experienced significant regrowth and increased hair density. In addition to the regrowth, the researchers wrote that, “subjects reported overall improvement of hair loss condition and thickness and fullness of hair in self-assessment.” Importantly, no side effects were observed from the treatment. The study suggests that laser treatment will soon become an effective, reliable option for people struggling with pattern hair loss. The only missing piece of the puzzle is the question of how long the results last. We’ll have to wait for future studies to figure out whether laser treatment can be effective in the long term.
