Here at The Griffin Center of Hair Restoration and Research, we work to understand every aspect of hair, from its growth cycle to its basic care, so that we can educate our patients on all of the options for combating hair thinning and loss. Whether your specific hair restoration treatment involves a customized blend of prescription medicines, minimally-invasive approaches like platelet rich plasma or red light therapy, or full hair transplantation surgery, the first step must always be a thorough diagnosis of the underlying issues. But in order to properly understand how hair grows, it is necessary to first understand its basic anatomy. In this handy illustration, we explain the fundamental parts of the hair follicle, in order to give you a better understanding of what hair loss really means.
If you have questions about your individual hair loss or any of the hair restoration treatments we offer, please contact The Griffin Center to schedule a consultation. Be sure to also visit our website and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Google+.
