pivot-point skin

dermatology The study of the skin its structure,functions,diseases and treatment
The skin is the largest organ of the body covers the entire body and protects it from invasion from outside particles
Functions of the skin sensation,secretion,absorption,regulation,protection,and excretion
The skin has three main layers Epidermis,Dermis,and Subcutaneous
Epidermis which is the outermost layer of the skin referred to as scarf skin,or cuticle
Dermis which is the underlying,or inner, layer of the skin, also called derma, corium, cutis or true skin
Subcutaneous also called subcutis or subdermis, which is located below the dermis layer and composed primarily of fatty(adipose)tissue fatty layer below the dermis
The Epidermis is composed of five layers of cells with differing characteristics and contains no blood vessels
Stratum Germinativum At the lowest level of the epidermis,it begins with stratum basale,or basal cell layer
Mitosis or cell division begin in the stratum germinativum where skin cell growth occurs
Keratinization the chemical conversion of living cells into dead protein cells, begins newly produced cells pushed toward the surface
melanocytes melanin-producing cells are located in the basal layer of the epidermis
melanin or melanocytes is distributed throughout all epidermal cells and forms an effective barrier from the penetration of ultraviolet rays to the deeper layers of the skin`
stratum spinosum is the next layer up and is sometimes considered to be part of the stratum germinativum
stratum granulosum cells become more regularly shaped and look like many tiny granules (almost dead cells)are on their way to the surface of the skin to replace cells that are shed from the stratum corneum
stratum lucidum on the palms of the hands and soles of the feet only, where there are no hair follicles
stratum corneum the uppermost layer sometimes called the horny layer is the toughest layer composed of keratin protein cells that are continually shed and continually replaced by new cells from below
acid mantle a mixture of oil secreted by sebaceous oil glands and water secreted by sweat glands. The pH of the acid mantle averages 5.5.
connective tissues are composed of a semifluid substance containing collage protein and elastin fibers,both of which are found in the dermis layer
sudoriferous glands (soo-dohr-IF-er-us)also called eccrine glands sweat glands that are also found in the dermis layer,makes up the acid mantle. They are controlled by the nervous system
sebaceous (sih_BAY-shus)glands produce sebum oil .make up the acid mantle.
Found in the dermis are the suderiferous(sweat)glands,sebaceous(oil)glands,sensory nerve endings and receptors,blood vessels and a major portion of the each hair follicle
sweat glands(three major functions) control and regulation of body temperatures,excretion of waste products,helping maintain the acidic ph factor of the skin
sweat and oil glands are called duct glands
sebum is a complex secretion containing a high percentage of fatty,oily substances.sebum helps to keep the skin from frying or chapping
papillary canal the sebum or oil is secreted onto the surface of the skin by way of the papillary canal
Dry skin is charcterized by signs such as peeling and flaking. Dry skin has fewer blemishes and is not prone to acne

inflammation is an objective symptom (one you can see) characterized by redness, pain, swelling and/or increased temperature
Chronic is a term used to identify conditions that are frequent and habitual
Acute is a term used to identify conditions that are brief and severe
Contagious disease is communicable by contact. It is also known as an infectiois or communicable disease
seasonal disease is influenced by weather
Etiology is the study of cause of diseases
Pathology is the study of diseases
Prognosis is a medical opinion of the future condition of illness
Dermatitis Venenata occupational disorders salon professionals may be susceptible to an allergic reaction to cosmetics or chemicals.sometimes referred to as contact dermatitis
Subjective subjective symptoms-those you feel.disorders or disease may be felt but not visible.Itching,burning,pain or symptoms that are felt are subjective symptoms
Objective those you see examples are pimples or inflammation are objective symptoms because they are visible
