Led by Dr. William Yates, the Yates Hair Science Group offers a full range of therapies at its new downtown Chicago office. The Yates Hair Science Group employs advanced techniques, such as follicular unit transplantation (FUT) in addressing issues of hair thinning and loss.
Affecting women as well as men, hair loss has a number of instigating reasons, including issues with anemia, weight, and thyroid-related hormonal imbalances. Low levels of iron and a poor diet can also result in hair loss, as can extended periods of stress.
Other causes of hair loss for women include childbirth and chemotherapy cancer treatments. The good news is that these types of hair loss are reversible, as the follicle itself is not compromised and can regenerate growth. Maintaining a balanced diet and a properly functioning endocrine system are essential to healthy hair volume.
Another female hair loss condition, androgenetic alopecia (AGA), a genetic predisposition of male hormones in the body, is not reversible. AGA involves gradual thinning over a period of years. Innovative approaches such as FUT allow restoration of volume with an entirely natural appearance.
