FUE Services at Yates Hair Science Group

Yates Hair Science Group in Chicago, led by hair transplant surgeon Dr. William Yates, provides a number of options for dealing with hair loss. Yates Hair Science Group services include follicular unit extraction (FUE).

FUE is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat hair loss. Dr. Yates has so much faith in the FUE process that he performs no other hair restoration procedures.

The FUE procedure begins with the administration of a localized anesthetic followed by the harvesting of individual hair follicles from the back of the scalp. The procedure is further enhanced through the use of ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant System support. ARTAS allows hair transplant surgeons to use computerized, handheld devices to carefully punch out and preserve each hair follicle.

The FUE process is often favorably compared to the traditional method of strip harvesting, which painfully removes a strip of skin and hair, even taking weakened follicles that cannot be effectively transplanted.
