Q. What is the HairMax LaserComb?
A. The HairMax LaserComb is the first medical device clinically tested and FDA-cleared to promote hair growth in both men and women with certain degrees of hair loss.
Q. How do I use the HairMax LaserComb?
A. The HairMax LaserComb is very simple to use. Start at your hairline, making sure that the teeth are touching your scalp. Hold in place for four seconds. A convenient timer will beep/vibrate indicating when you need to move the device to the next spot. Glide the LaserComb over your scalp very slowly, moving it about a half inch to one inch every four seconds.
Move from the front of your hairline to the back of your head and then repeat the process covering both sides of the head. Next, place the LaserComb device above one ear and repeat the same gliding motion combing sideways to the other ear. You want to make sure to cover as much of the front and top of your head as possible. It is important to cover the entire scalp with multiple passes during treatment to stimulate all of your hair follicles.
Q. How often do I need to use the HairMax LaserComb?
A. It is recommended that the HairMax LaserComb be used three times per week.
Q. How long will I need to continue my treatment with the HairMax LaserComb?
A. The HairMax LaserComb treatment is an ongoing process, and to keep seeing positive benefits from the HairMax, it is imperative to use it on a consistent basis. Once you are satisfied with the results, you can cut the treatment back to once or twice a week to maintain the results. We do not recommend stopping use completely as there is a strong possibility you will not see desirable results, or you might regress to where you were prior to starting use of the LaserComb device.
Q. How long does it take before I start seeing results?
A. User experience will vary. When used as directed, most people will start to see a difference after about 16 weeks of treatment.

Q. How should you prepare your hair when you use the HairMax LaserComb?
A. While you can use the HairMax LaserComb at any time, it isrecommended that you use it on a clean scalp. Gels, sprays, and excessive oil build-up can block the laser light from effectively reaching the hair follicle.
