The Extreme LaserComb is an effective and FDA-cleared way to treat hair loss by stimulating growth in hair follicles. Using the at-home device  for just 10-15 minutes, three times a week will improve the quality of your hair and limit hair loss.

This breakthrough technology has delivered incredible results, stimulating hair growth in over 95% of users, according to clinical trials.

Summary of Clinical Study – Men

A clinical study was conducted at 4 locations in the United States. All participants in the study were male, diagnosed with hereditary hair loss, which is called Androgenetic Alopecia and had light to medium skin tones. Subjects were divided into two groups, Extreme LC and a Control Group. The Control device looked and sounded like the Extreme device but did not include a laser light. The clinical studies adhered to all GCP (Good Clinical Practice) guidelines, were approved by an IRB (Institutional Review Board) and listed on wwww.clinicaltrials.gov.

During the 6 month clinical study, subjects treated their hair once per day, 3 times per week on non-consecutive days. The numbers of thick, normal healthy hairs in the target zone were counted at week 1, week 16 and week 26.

Results at the 26 week visit showed that over 90% of the men saw an increase in hair counts (based on a minimum of 5 new hairs being observed at the follow up visit).

No subject in the study experienced any serious adverse events. In fact, the number and types of adverse events were similar in the Extreme and control groups.
