Medical, Surgical, and Cosmetic Dermatology
Your skin is one of the most important organs of your body, serving several vital functions. For one thing, it protects you from germs and the elements. For another, it helps regulate your body temperature. Last, but not least, it enables you to sense touch, heat, and cold.
Your skin is comprised of three layers:
- Epidermis - The outermost layer of skin that not only creates your skin tone but also provides a protective barrier.
- Dermis - Beneath the epidermis is this layer of skin, which contains a combination of tough connective tissue, hair follicles, sweat glands, blood vessels, and nerve endings.
- Subcutaneous Fat - Deeper still is the subcutaneous fat, which is made up of fat, larger blood vessels, and additional connective tissue.
As durable as your skin may be, it is vulnerable to many environmental and biological factors that can affect your health and appearance.
