Lexington Int’l announces approval by the Singapore Health Science Authority for the HairMax LaserComb as a home-use laser phototherapy medical device for the treatment of hair loss and the promotion of hair growth.
Oct. 24, 2013 - BOCA RATON, Fla. -- Boca Raton, FL - Lexington International, LLC, is the developer and manufacturer of the HairMax LaserComb® laser phototherapy medical device, for the treatment of hereditary hair loss in men and women. The HairMax LaserComb incorporates a patented hair parting teeth mechanism which assures optimal delivery of laser energy to the hair follicles. Further, the HairMax is the only home use laser phototherapy device proven safe and effective in 7 clinical trials with 460 subjects and has US FDA marketing clearance for the treatment of hereditary hair loss.
The Singapore Health Science Authority granted approval to market the three models of the device, the HairMax Advanced 7, HairMax Lux 9, and HairMax Professional 12 for sale directly to consumers and also through doctors’ offices, retail outlets and pharmacies. The hair care market (which includes products for hair loss) in Singapore had total revenue of approximately USD126 million in 2012 according to Datamonitor, and has demonstrated growth of 5.9% a year between 2008 and 2012. This makes Singapore an ideal market opportunity for the HairMax LaserComb.
With this approval, men and women in Singapore now have a new and effective non-drug treatment option to treat their hair loss in the privacy and convenience of their home. The approval was based on results of major clinical studies of men and women suffering from the most common form of hair loss, Androgenetic Alopecia (pattern hair loss). The results of these studies showed a statistically significant increase in average hair growth of subjects on the HairMax LaserComb vs. those on the control device. The studies also demonstrated that 93% of the subjects using the HairMax LaserComb experienced hair regrowth. During the study, no serious side effects occurred.
