The Ultima 12 LaserComb by HairMax is a premier, handheld cold laser device. It is their top-tier comb with the most features.
This technology is FDA-cleared to treat hair loss for both men and women. It is engineered for speed, effectiveness, comfort and ease of use.
Through photobiostimulation, the Ultima 12 stimulates hair follicles at a cellular level to promote hair growth, reverse hair thinning, restore the natural growth cycle and helping to regrow denser, fuller hair.
The Ultima 12 delivers therapeutic light energy through 12 medical-grade lasers (No LEDs).
Why Ultima 12 (vs. all other Laser Combs)?
The Ultima 12 offers a unique comb design that incorporates patented hair parting teeth which part your hair during treatment to allow optimal laser light delivery to your follicles.
The 3 elements for efficacy – the hair parting teeth, laser light intensity and laser light density work in unison to provide a highly effective treatment for hair loss and thinning hair. Comfortable, portable and lightweight for home use or while traveling.
Low Level Laser therapy improves hair density and volume and improves the overall appearance of thinning hair. Over time, your healthier follicles produce and grow better, stronger, thicker, healthier hair.
The Ultima 12 has more laser diodes and therefore more area coverage than most other laser combs on the market, including the less expensive base model by HairMax which features 7 laser diodes.
For those willing to do more “work” – these base models are a great choice because they utilize the same exact technology in the more premium models of hair loss treatment laser devices.
Who Can Use HairMax Ultima 12?
Adult men and women with mild to moderate hair loss are both FDA cleared candidates for the Ultima 12, to regrow their hair and prevent future hair loss.
The best results will be for men and women in early or moderate stages of hair loss, where it has just started thinning or shedding.
My hair is totally gone, should I use the HairMax Ultima 12?
It depends on your situation, of course, but the best outcomes will be for those with mild to moderate hair loss or temporary hair loss. In the words of HairMax:
While the HairMax laser devices can ‘awaken’ dormant hair follicles, once the hair follicle is no longer functioning, it cannot be revitalized.
Sidebar: I wish more people knew they needed to be AGGRESSIVE at the first signs of hair loss. Once it’s gone gone, it’s REALLY gone gone. For those of us who have noticed thinning or have any suspicion that it will happen to us because of lovely genetics, it’s absolutely essential that we take action now.

How does the HairMax Ultima 12 Laser Comb regrow hair?
HairMax laser devices utilize laser energy to stimulate the follicle to grow healthy new hair when you have androgenetic alopecia, also known as pattern baldness or thinning hair.
The HairMax laser devices work directly on the hair follicle, to provide the energy needed to support healthy hair growth, by helping to increase blood circulation to the follicle, to increase circulation and remove waste products.
Worth Noting: As is true with Rogaine and even most hair loss supplements, you will need to use the laser indefinitely. Good thing ye olde 12 comes with such a terrific warranty – 5 months window to return!
At this time, in spite of all of our incredible science and technology, the only permanent solution for hair loss is surgical. However, the process of hair loss surgery is a mixed bag for many reasons.
Speaking only for myself, I can always see when someone has hair plugs. I have also seen scalps where the procedure didn’t take and the patient is basically disfigured forever. Worth going down that google image wormhole, if you need to see what I’m talking about.
Free Gift – Sweet!
Because they know you’re coughing up an arm and a leg for their state of the art hair loss equipment, HairMax throws in their own hair loss shampoo, conditioner, and treatment, and supplements to use along side the Ultima LaserComb 12.
WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE:
Treating your hair loss and protecting your hair is a long-term commitment.
You have a choice: do nothing and simply accept that it will continue to thin and fall out, or do something today to interfere with and arrest that outcome. Hair loss treatment routines, like diamonds, are forever.
If you choose to use a cold laser device, using it indefinitely is required. HOWEVER, this is also true of Minoxidil, supplements, and DHT blocking shampoo. Sadly, there is no “one and done” treatment – it all needs to be ongoing, and it is a commitment.
HairMax Ultima 12: Premier Laser Comb Option
If you are intrigued by cold laser therapy but need a lower price point, consider trying a base model laser comb (those start at $199).
If you are still mulling over the investment, here’s a challenge:
- Go through your statements and receipts and add up all the $ you’ve spent on shampoos, supplements, sprays, and other hair loss treatments over the last year.
- Is it higher than $400? My money says it is.
- Take that amount and times it by the amount of years remaining in your lifespan.
- NOW, compare that amount to the upfront one-time cost for a high-quality laser device. See which option makes more sense?
