It looks like Dr. William Yates M.D. FACS will be bringing his hair restoration expertise to Chicago’s North Shore. The leading expert in hair loss restoration just opened a new location, Dr. Yates Hair Science Group, in Vernon Hills, IL this past March.
Through this practice, residents of Chicago and the Midwest will have access to an array of state-of-the-art facial and hair restoration services. Yates brings over 20 years of experience in his field and has started hair transplant procedures exclusively since 2005.
He offers one-on-one consultations and personalized plans in both surgical and non-surgical hair restoration solutions. He also offers facial rejuvenation procedures.
Yates has been currently using the technological surgical hair procedure ARTAS Robotic Transplant System. He talked to Chicago Health News Examiner Brandi Walker about this new procedure, his future improvements for his other procedures and what more his practice has to offer.
1. What improvements do you expect to see in the future with your procedures? I already utilize a technique that the majority of hair transplant surgeons do not that eliminates the large cut and scar in the back of the scalp- FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) with either the ARTAS Robotic Transplant System or the Manual SAFE System. Cloning of the hair is being tested now and hopefully will be approved within the next 5-10 years for use in transplanting hair for patients-this will allow for unlimited amounts of hair to be transplanted for individuals. The current robotic technology will continue to improve as more algorithms are developed to make the procedure even less invasive with better outcomes.
2. What types of Facial Rejuvenation procedures do you offer? PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) – FDA approved for wound healing. We extract an individuals own blood serum, spin it down in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet rich plasma. This portion of the blood is loaded with growth factors, cytokines and other cells that stimulate healing, collagen, elastin, and stem cells. When used for the face, it helps to minimize wrinkles and improve skin texture and tone. When used in the scalp, it stimulates hair follicles to re-grow and allows for thicker, fuller and shinier hair growth.
3. What does FACS at the end of your name stand for? Fellow American College of Surgeons.
