Women’s Hair Loss Treatment

Posted on: June 9th, 2016 by Dr Yates

With locations in Vernon Hills and Chicago, Yates Hair Science Group strives to make a positive impact on the self-confidence of patients who are losing their hair. Dr. William Yates uses only the best methods, technologies, and products to promote hair regrowth and replacement. Although hair restoration is often associated with men’s hair loss, Yates Hair Science Group also provides women with top surgical and medical hair restoration options.

Hair loss in women occurs for many reasons, including stress, traction alopecia, autoimmune disorders, heredity, and medical treatments. Many women experiencing hair loss resort to wigs or other methods to hide the condition. Both follicular unit extraction and follicular unit transplantation are effective treatments for women with these issues.

Depending on the results of a medical evaluation and diagnosis, other non-surgical treatments are sometimes preferable. One such treatment is platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, which involves taking PRP from the patient’s own blood to stimulate hair growth.

Yates Hair Science Group – FUE Hair Transplants Explained

Posted on: June 9th, 2016 by Dr Yates

A board-certified hair restoration surgeon, Dr. William Yates owns and operates Yates Hair Science Group in Illinois. Patients from around the world seek revolutionary treatments at the state-of-the-art facility. Although Dr. Yates has experience with every surgical hair restoration technique, he only performs follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplants at Yates Hair Science Group.

With the FUE method, the surgeon extracts donor hair from the back of the scalp or another donor area to harvest hair follicles. Before extracting the follicles, the surgeon makes tiny, needle-point recipient sites with a special instrument in the scalp’s balding area. After harvesting enough follicles, the units are then grafted onto the recipient sites, where they can grow into healthy hair follicles.

The procedure requires local anesthesia and robotics tools or special hand-held instruments. The instrument used depends on the best choice to give each individual patient the best results.
