Skin is comprised of four basic types of cells. Keratinocytes provide structure to skin’s outer layer. Melanocytes produce pigments that give skin color. Merkel cells allow skin to sense touch. Langerhans cells are part of the immune system.
Three skin layers, each with a specialized purpose, are essential to body function. Epidermis is the top (visible) layer. Ideally, the epidermis is soft and smooth, but this tough stratum is your body’s primary barrier against the environment. Dermis, the middle layer, contains sweat glands, hair follicles, and strong, fibrous proteins. The deepest subcutaneous layer, called hypodermis, holds fat and connective tissues.
What does skin do?
- Contains nerve endings that let you sense temperature and touch.
- Cushions and protects internal organs.
- Helps to regulate body temperature with insulation for warmth and sweat for cooling.
- Hold fluids and nutrients.
- Keeps viruses and bacteria out.
- Waterproofs your body.
Why choose professional skin care?
Skin undergoes many changes during a lifetime. Youth may bring injuries and acne flare-ups. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin. Without enough of these proteins that keep skin thick and taut, we develop lines, creases, folds, wrinkles, and sags. Hyaluronic acid in skin diminishes. This sugar grabs and holds water, so as it depletes, skin become thinner and dryer.
CoolSprings Laser, Aesthetic & Skin Care Center offers physician-grade products, FDA-approved treatments, and leading-edge technologies to keep skin healthy and radiant. A personalized plan helps to resolve existing issues, and resists ongoing signs of aging.
