The Laser Comb (HairMAX LaserComb) for Treatment of Alopecia

The Laser Comb (HairMAX LaserComb) for Treatment of Hair Loss is Now Available in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia.

The Hair Max Laser Comb (a medical device for home use to treat hair loss, scalp and damaged hair problems) is now available in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia.

" We are greatly excited to be able to introduce this new medical breakthrough to Singapore, Malaysia and Indonesia as the Hair Max Laser Comb is affordable, it is designed to be used at home and there's no need for users to pay again and again for unproven and ineffective treatments at hair care centers " according to Mr. Timothy Chan Managing Director of DermaLogix Cosmedics " now users in Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia can buy the Laser Comb directly from office or at any of our authorized outlets or from our online shop at http://www.DermaLogix.net "

The Hair Max Laser Comb is a hand-held home Laser PhotoTherapy device for the treatment of male and female pattern hair loss as well as all types of hair and scalp problems, such as thin hair, weak hair, grey hair and damaged hair conditions.

In 2002 based on appropriate scientific information and clinical data submitted to Health Canada, and after examination of all data submitted, the Canadian Health Authority certified the Laser Comb as a Class 2 Medical Device (Medical Device License Number 61237)allowing the following therapeutic claims to be made to the Canadian public.

-The HairMax LaserComb increases the strength of scalp hair in men and women.

-The HairMax LaserComb prevents scalp hair loss in men and women.

-The HairMax LaserComb causes regrowth of scalp hair in men and women.

Last year the Laser Comb was also cleared to be marketed and sold in Singapore and classified as a Class 2a Medical Device by the Health Science Authority of Singapore since it complies with all safety, quality and performance standards of a medical device ( HSA Center for Medical Device Regulation - Registration number 728-2003-1).

The Hair Max Laser Comb also received CE certification for conformity with the essential health and safety requirements set out in European Directives and complies with US FDA laser safety standards.

The Laser Comb was developed from nearly two decades of clinical research and is manufactured by Lexington International LLC in the USA with patent in the USA and patents pending in over one hundred countries around the world.

DermaLogix Cosmedics was appointed as the exclusive distributor for Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia since July 2003. The results of the Laser Comb in treatment of hair loss, so far have been very promising. Mr. Andy Chan and Mr. Simon Lim, both users in Singapore, was so happy with their results just after 2 months of treatment allowed the company to use his testimonial in their marketing campaign.

According to a paper published in the summer 2003 issue (Volume 5, Number 2) of International Journal of Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology, a report entitled, "Hair Regrowth and Increased Hair Tensile Strength Using the HairMax LaserComb for Low-Level Laser Therapy," John L. Satino and Michael Markou, D.O., from The Laser Hair and Scalp Clinic (Clearwater, FL) describe the remarkable results patients achieved with the HairMax LaserComb after six months of treatment. Patients used the laser comb at home for 5 to 10 minutes every other day. The comb-like teeth of the device separate the hair, exposing the scalp to the light from nine laser beams. Patients reported no adverse effects.

Thirty-five patients, 28 men and 7 women with androgenetic alopecia, a common form of hair loss, used the comb for six months. The investigators counted the number of hairs in the area of greatest hair loss and also determined the strength of the hair before and after treatment. Hair count increased 93.5% on average, with both men and women showing significant improvement. Hair strength increased 78.9% across all patients.

" Our company is looking forward to work with partners who are in the beauty, hair or healthcare industry to promote this medical device to home users " added Mr. Adrian Lim Manager of DermaLogix Cosmedics Singapore " at present we are working closely with a few well known hair transplant surgeons and beauty specialist and we invite any doctors or salons owners to be our authorized retailers. Those who are interest can visit this link for more information http://www.dermalogix.net/franchise "

" Those who are interested to get a copy of the above mentioned medical journal report or to find out more about Low Level Laser Therapy (LLLT) or be work with our company do visit our web site and contact us immediately " added Mr. Timothy Chan.

The Hair Max Laser Comb debuted in March 2001 and has received wide public and press attention. The Hair Max Laser Comb has been highlighted by TIME Magazine as one of the "Inventions of the Year".

To-date the HairMAX LaserComb have been sold to more than 63 countries such as Aruba, Austria, Australia, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Belgium, Republic of Botswana, Brazil, Canada, Cayman Islands, China, Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Denmark, Dubai, Ecuador, Egypt, Farao Islands, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guam, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malta, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Pakistan, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Africa, Spain, Sudan, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, United Kingdom, Venezuala

laser comb

I agree - the laser comb is bullshit - used it for 5 months, and not only did it not do anything to my scalp, but they have a "fine print" clause in their return policy that makes it impossible to return.

HAIRmax is a SCAM

DO NOT BUY THE LASER COMB - IT IS WORTHLESS, and Lexington is a corrupt company which will not allow you to refund their worthless product.[B]

LASERCOMB

JUST USE A BIT OF COMMEN SENSE.
THE LASERCOMB HAS BEEN ON THE MARKET FOR A LITTLE OVER 3 YEARS NOW!

IF THIS PRODUCT WAS SO EFFECTIVE AS LEXINGTON CLAIMS, THE ENTIRE WORLD WOULD BE TALKING ABOUT IT, THEY COULD NOT BUILT THEM FAST ENOUGH.
THEY WOULD NOT CARE ABOUT WHAT THE FDA HAD TO SAY !
THEY WOULD NOT HAVE TO MAKE ANY CLAIMS AS TO IT''S EFFECTIVENESS AT GROWING HAIR.

CHECK OUT THE WWW AND YOU CAN CLEARLY SEE THAT IT IS JUST ANOTHER SCAM . THESE PEOPLE SHOULD BE ASHAMED FOR TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE PUBLIC THE WAY THEY DO.
AVOID THIS PRODUCT AT ALL COST.

Look at this for food for thought!!!

Beware The owner of this lasercomb comany is a massive scam artist. He has no experience in the hair loss industry whatsoever, their ridicolous forum gets 2 posts a week (Probably posted by themselves) even though they "claim" they have sold tens of thousands of units. Their medical director Dr Martin Unger has abandonded the company and the lasercomb and it also appears that Versacchi (their biggest resellers) have also abandonded the scam and they look like having something very interesting to say. see hairlaser.net this should be very interesting.
As for the cowboys in Singapore... can you believe they have it "approved" in their region but Lexington scam artists cant even keep the medical director or their distributors and staff. or get it "approved" here in the US

Try to post on their forum, its probably the biggest joke and best laugh you'll have all day.

I tried to post that question on the Hairmax Forum re: their medical director + their distributor, they deleted it . I guess what you say is true.
I would tend to agree with you and avoid this product at all cost.

HairMax LaserComb response.

Lexington International, the developers and manufacturers of the HairMax LaserComb would like to respond to the postings by elaborating on our background and position.

Lexington International prides itself of being an ethical company. We are an ISO 13485 & 9001 Certified Quality Assured company and stand behind our product and support our claims with a money back guarantee. We offer a comprehensive trial period for 12 weeks, but it is easily extended to 20 weeks. The money back is less 15% of the purchase price as a restocking fee. No other product for hair offers such an extended money back guarantee. Fortunately most users experience benefits and choose to keep their LaserComb. Our return rate traditionally has been 7%.

The HairMax LaserComb is Low Level Laser Therapy device intended for improving the appearance of hair. Clinical experience dates back to the mid 80s in Australia. The anecdotal evidence gathered, parallels the clinical experience which indicates that 90%, or more of all users see quantifiable benefits. The LaserComb has been on the market since 2001 and there are already tens of thousands of LaserCombs in use in 69 countries. User satisfaction is high and Lexington is very proud of that. The Better Business Bureau has not received any legitimate complaints against the LaserComb, which is a clear testament to our business practices.

We are proud to say that the market momentum for the LaserComb is great. The LaserComb consistently receives positive reports in high profile publications. The LaserComb has been featured in respected media such as Good Housekeeping, Wall Street Journal, Proof Magazine, Men’s Health and Today Tonight (Australia). The media inclusion list is very comprehensive. Most recent and significantly Dateline NBC did an investigational report of hair treatments and the HairMax LaserComb came out as a top treatment.

To view the complete Dateline story, please visit: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/6590766

The author of some of the negative posts to this forum is a former employee and not a true representation of our general user. This same employee video taped and documented many positive user testimonials during his tenure with Lexington International. It is disappointing they he would now turn his frustration with a challenging job market into a negative attack on the company he previously supported.

To the posters of this forum who remain a naysayer, we ask you to stay tuned and remain open minded until the time when we publish additional clinical data. Those that are receptive to trying to improve their appearance, it is worth giving the LaserComb a try, after all there is a money back guarantee.

Regards,

Lexington Int LLC

Even 15% "restocking fee" is over $90 for a $10 to

If you look at the ads or web site, you will not even see any clear claims that this thing works! It simply says it "improves appearance."

Yeah, like any comb improves appearance.

It's total BS. Really makes me laugh as a classic example of a scam.

This product is giant POS!!!

It looks and feels like it is crazy-glued together, and the company oozes malodorous scent of scam & shyster.

As previous people have said, if the product worked (after the years of anectodal and more important clinical evidence suggests [since the early 80s as Lexington themselves claim], the CEO would be a Wall Sreet Darling, these would be sold at dozens of commercial retailers (or , alternatively, "company owned" retail outlets), and this would be the talk of every publication around the globe.

As it would appear, Lexington now hangs it's marketing hopes and sales aspirations on a few scant & poorly controlled studies, a mere handful of magazine articles, and the same old, tired marketing catchphrases they have been repeating over and over again.

Puh-lease. Save your money folks.
