Cold Laser Comb Promises Home Baldness Therapy

Cold Laser Comb Promises Home Baldness Therapy

updated

If you've been thinking about laser therapy for baldness but are shy about calling a cosmetic surgeon or medical hair restoration specialist, Lexington International, LLC, would like to hear from you. They'd like to introduce you to the MaxHair LaserComb®, a home treatment device for male pattern baldness.

The LaserComb® uses low-level or cold-light laser to deliver what its maker calls photobiostimulation to prevent hair loss and regrow hair. Like the lasers in a doctor's office, it is supposed to restore lost blood flow to failing follicles, causing them to grow longer, thicker hair.

The device looks like a brush with an electric cord. Between two rows of bristles, the LaserComb® has a row of low-level laser lights. The instructions suggest using it for 10 to 15 minutes each day.

Lexington claims 93 percent of users have had positive results.

The product's fine print says the LaserComb® works for early stages of male pattern baldness in men who are fair to light brown in complexion, leaving out those with typical Middle Eastern or African skin color. Like other baldness treatments, results are not permanent. The LaserComb® is approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) through a procedure that grants clearance based on similarity to devices that have previously been approved. In other words, since lasers, in general, are shown to stimulate hair growth in some men, and there are no known side effects, the LaserComb® was cleared.
