Hair Arrector Pili Muscle - What is It?

Hair Arrector Pili Muscle - What is It?

By: Selena Belisle, Owner/Instructor CE Institute LLC, Miami FL

In the obtuse angle between the root of a hair and the surface of the skin, a bundle of smooth muscle fibers, known as an arrector pili muscle, is usually found.

The arrector pili muscle extends from the deep part of the hair follicle to the papillary layer of the dermis.

Contraction of the arrector pili muscle makes the hair “stand” erect. The arrectores pilorum are innervated by sympathetic fibers and contract in response to such stimuli as emotion or cold. This results in an unevenness of the skin’s surface called "goose pimples."[i]
