Learning anatomy/Dermis


The dermis is made up of the papillary dermis and the reticular dermis. It consists of collagen, elastin, blood capillaries, lymph vessels, sweat glands, sebaceous glands, nerve endings, and hair follicles.


The dermis makes sweat and regulates the body’s temperature, it produces oil, it makes hair grow, feels things and if it is too hot or too cold, your body tells you to get away from it and the dermis also protects the body from harmful pathogens, keeping the skin in shape, and distributing blood so that it can feed the skin, removes toxins, and supplies the epidermis with blood.
