While doing your research on hair transplants, you probably came across the term “follicular unit” and may be wondered exactly what it is. Making sure you understand the terminology being used is incredibly important when doing research on whether a particular procedure is a good choice for you.
Our hair naturally grows in small groups of up to four hairs. These tiny clusters of hair are referred to as follicular units. Follicular Unit Transplantation involves the harvesting of these clusters of hair so that they can be transferred to the area being treated for hair loss.
