What is dermatology?
Dermatology is a medical specialty that focuses on the conditions of the skin. A dermatologist is a physician who receives extensive training in skin problems and quality solutions to keep each person’s skin, hair and nails vibrant and healthy.
The skin is the largest organ of the body that protects each person’s bones, muscles, ligaments and internal organs, and prevents bacteria and infections. This outer shell is composed of three primary layers:
• Epidermis: the most superficial layer of the skin. Although it does not contain any blood vessels, it helps the skin to regulate the temperature of the body and protects from the sun light.
• Dermis: the layer below the epidermis that contains hair follicles, sweat glands and blood vessels. It also contains collagen and elastic fibers that produce the skin’s elasticity. This middle layer provides the sense of heat and touch.
•Hypodermis: this deepest layer attaches the skin to the bones and muscles and supplies it with blood vessels and nerves. The hypodermis consists of 50% body fat that serves as padding and insulation.
