Frequently Asked Questions

How It All Began

From nearly two decades of research and development in Sydney, Australia, the directors of Lexington International were able to engineer the astonishing success of Laser PhotoTherapy for hair into a product that is affordable and convenient for home use, the Hairmax laser devices. Lexington International is considered the pioneer of laser therapy for baldness and has continued to grow and advance to a 90% success rate**. The Hairmax has been cleared for marketing by the FDA and has been clinically proven to promote hair growth and treat certain classes of Androgenetic Alopecia.* Results can be seen in as little as 12-16 weeks**.

The Hairmax was designed and developed in Australia and is manufactured in the USA under strict quality oriented standards. It was developed to provide laser therapy for baldness or thinning hair in men*, in the convenience of their own home. The Hairmax is also patented in the USA, Australia, China, Korea with additional patents pending around the world.

Located in Boca Raton, Florida, Lexington International, LLC. was established in 2000 to develop and promote a revolutionary hair care product, the Hairmax LaserComb®. Maintaining a commitment to quality control with friendly, accessible customer service is of primary importance to Lexington International. Our founding director, Henry Pearl was a pioneer in the use of laser technology at a leading skin and hair care clinic and research center in Sydney, Australia from as early as 1986.

n Australia, we developed and sold a single laser probe for the hair, which we have been selling to our clients for self-care as a convenient laser treatment for baldness since the 90’s. This was the starting point for the idea to produce a LaserComb for personal use. The average sale price was AUD$2000. Client satisfaction was significant. The energy parameters we chose for use in the Hairmax laser devices are the result of years of observing and analyzing the effects of lasers and laser treatment for baldness on thousands of individual cases. This is supported by our research program, as well as our ongoing study of related clinical trials of hair lasers around the world. There have been over 3,500 positive scientific studies of Laser PhotoTherapy (Low Level Laser Therapy) published internationally to date. In 2009, the results of the 2006 clinical trial which led to the FDA Clearance in 2007 were also published in a peer review journal. This landmark study demonstrated the correlation between Hairmax LaserComb use and positive benefits to users. Clinical studies conducted in 2009/2010 were also submitted to the FDA, and they proved consistently that the Hairmax is an effective and safe laser treatment for pattern hair loss, thinning hair and the promotion of hair regrowth in men and women.*

Lexington continues to innovate, and the recent introduction of the enhanced hands-free Hairmax LaserBand, offers the fastest treatment time of any laser device for hair growth on the market today, just as little as 90 seconds 3 times a week.
