HairMax Hair Loss Treatment Studies and the FDA Clearance Process

In 2010, the results of a six-month, multi-center device controlled clinical trials for the treatment of female pattern hair loss was submitted to the FDA. The data from the trial indicated that 100% of participants, all 25-60, experienced hair growth. Further, subject assessment of thickness and fullness of hair was statistically significant for the HairMax over the control device. No serious side effects were reported.

In June 2011 the FDA granted marketing Clearance for the HairMax for the treatment of female pattern hair loss.* In August 2011, the FDA granted marketing Clearance for the HairMax Dual 12 device and for and additional 3 new HairMax models, the HairMax Professional 12, HairMax Lux 9 and HairMax Advanced 7.

After years of extensive research and randomized clinical studies, the results of a six-month, multi-center placebo controlled clinical trials in 2006 was submitted. The data collected from the trials indicated that 93% of the participants, all males aged 30-60, had a medically significant increase in hair growth. No serious side effects were reported.

All of the clinical trials provided conclusive evidence that the HairMax is effective and safe for the treatment of hereditary hair loss in both men and women. The HairMax is a viable treatment option for those wishing to avoid the use of drugs and/or topicals.
