Yates Hair Science Group in Vernon Hills and Chicago, Illinois, is a hair restoration resource that specializes in both surgical and non-surgical solutions to hair restoration. Led by chief executive officer, owner, and hair loss expert Dr. William Yates, the organization addresses issues of hair loss in both men and women. Yates Hair Science Group draws heavily on the benefits of follicular unit extraction (FUE), a minimally invasive surgical response that utilizes a variety of medical tools as well as the ARTAS robotic hair transplant system.

With this procedure, patients undergo local anesthesia prior to FUE as an experienced surgeon harvests follicles from the back of the scalp or another donor area. Doctors can select from a wide range of instruments when performing FUE based on patient needs, resulting in a highly customized transplant experience. The Hair Science Group’s non-surgical procedures include scalp micro-pigmentation and a custom line of hair enhancer products.

Dr. Yates completed his medical training at Northwestern University, earning a bachelor of science before graduating from Northwestern’s six-year doctor of medicine honors program. He gained further medical experience at the Howard University Hospital in Washington, DC. He holds board certification from the American Board of Surgery, the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, and Critical Care/Trauma Surgery.
