The huge dermis model

Clearly informed ours to anatomical structure of the human skin

The skin model shows clearly the different layers such as the epidermis, dermis, subcutaneous tissue, represents muscle layer and fatty tissue and informs clearly traceable to growth phase of the hair. Hair root, hair follicle, sebaceous gland, sweat gland, excretory duct and welding are shown visual and tactile effect and in conjunction with papillary, lymphatic, nerve fibers, arteriole, venule and Meissner and Pacini corpuscles opens to the viewer positively skin structure and function of the individual components , the skin model is complemented by the presentation of changes and clinical pictures such as a basal cell carcinoma, a malignant melanoma, a cyst, an infected follicle and a wart.

Many skin diseases attract attention because the skin at the site looks different from healthy skin. This is known as the so-called "lesions".

As skin cancer, may untreated result in death, he black skin cancer (malignant melanoma) is in some cases, despite adequate treatment is not curable. Many skin diseases can drag very serious therapies by themselves, which in turn are problematic due to their side effects.
