Dr. Rae Lynne Kinler

Expert Hair Transplant Surgeon and Artist

After completing a Fellowship in Hair Restoration Surgery under Dr. Craig Ziering, Rae Lynne Kinler, M.D. joined Ziering Medical as Clinical Director of Ziering Medical of Greenwich, Connecticut. Dr. Kinler is the first physician in her family. It was this ambition combined with a love of art and technology that drew her to the field of aesthetics and hair transplantation.

Born and raised in Louisiana, Dr. Kinler attended medical school at American University of the Caribbean in Saint Maarten, N.A., followed by a General Surgery Residency at Waterbury Hospital in Waterbury, Connecticut, and a Trauma Fellowship at Hartford Hospital in Hartford, Connecticut. She went on to complete an Aesthetic Medicine Fellowship at Dolce Vida Medical Spa in Shelton, Connecticut.

Dr. Kinler pursued the Hair Transplant Fellowship with Dr. Ziering because, as she phrased it, “in order to be the best, you have to be trained by the best.” During her fellowship, she became extremely proficient in Microscopically Dissected Elliptical Excision

(MDEE) and particularly skilled at Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) procedures, including manual FUE and ARTAS Robotic (FUE) procedures. She also participated in research and development with Restoration Robotics, and has been invited to lecture for the company.

She vigorously trains and has run in multiple marathons, including the NYC Marathon and numerous half marathons. Dr. Kinler also enjoys training and competing in IRONMAN triathlons, as well as traveling.

One option: A microneedling treatment for your scalp, performed in-office by a hair care pro. But what does the procedure involve, exactly, and can it actually help you get the Rapunzel-like locks you’ve been longing for?

“DHT is a derivative of the male hormone testosterone, which signals to the hair follicle to undergo miniaturization,” hair transplant surgeon at Ziering Medical, Dr. Rae Lynn Kinler, explains. “Over time, this leads to a finer, thinner, lighter hair shaft, which progressively gets smaller until the follicle no longer produces a hair shaft.”
