Based on the success of the HairMax LaserComb®, there are many companies that are making all sorts of false claims about the efficacy of their products on their website to capitalize on this achievement without any proof to back them up. Many of the products advertised use inexpensive LED’s and falsely claiming they are lasers without any proof of efficacy. Additionally, they are also purporting that their devices have the same or comparable benefits as the HairMax. Finally, many of these products to not adhere to any quality standards in production or testing.
We just noticed that one company Leimo Products, was the subject of a formal complaint submitted to the Complaints Resolution Panel in Australia about the “unlawful” claims for their device on their website. Leimo stated that their device has “therapeutic benefits for those suffering from hair loss, such as hair regrowth, reversal of hair loss, and reversal of hair thinning”. The Panel found that this complaint was justified and to resolve the issue, Leimo has agreed to the “withdrawal of advertisement; withdrawal of representations; publication of a retraction”.
It is important to keep in mind that the HairMax LaserComb is the only laser phototherapy device for the treatment of hereditary hair loss that is: 1) proven in clinical studies to regrow hair in individuals with hereditary hair loss, and 2) the only device of this kind with FDA 510(k) clearance to market. No other device can make these claims.
So, remember the old, but oh so true adage: “Let the Buyer Beware”.
