    TENS: The disease that burns you from the inside out

    Let’s just see how your skin is progressing. Melissa Mok’s skin still bears a few faint scars from her ordeal a year ago. The 32-year-old went from healthy to the intensive care unit after developing a mild form of toxic epidermal necrolysis syndrome, or TENS. I had blisters all over, all over my face, eyelids, my ears, everywhere all the way down to the bottom of my feet. Dr. Neil Shear is head of dermatology at Sunnybrook, and describes TENS as a severe and life threatening disease. What it involves is your skin basically is burning off your body from the inside out and it’s horribly painful. He says about…

    #4 Skin structure for massage therapists | How massage affects our skin | Massage lesson

    Hello again. In this video, we will talk about the first and in fact about the only organ in the client’s body, with which the hands of the massage therapist directly contact. We will talk about the skin. We will briefly review its structure and functions and talk about the impact of massage on it. The skin has many important functions and this determines its complex structure. It has three main layers. The outermost layer is the epidermis. Underneath it lies the dermis. And the deepest third layer is the hypodermis or subcutaneous tissue. Some sources, by the way, describe only two upper layers of the skin, and the subcutaneous…

    Eczema, Animation.

    Eczema, or dermatitis, is a group of conditions characterized by inflammation of the skin. Among the many types of dermatitis, the most common is atopic dermatitis, also known as atopic eczema. Very often, when not specified otherwise, the term “eczema” is used to describe the atopic type. Symptoms of atopic dermatitis include rashes, redness, scaling, and occasionally small blisters. Depending on the patient’s age, these patches may appear on the face, scalp, neck, inside the elbows, behind the knees, on the buttocks, hands and feet. The condition evolves in the form of recurrent inflammatory flare-ups followed by periods of remission. Flare ups can be triggered upon contact with irritants such…

    This Is How Your Skin Holds In Bodily Fluids

    It might look like I’m leaking all the time but I’m just crying. Hey freaky leakies, Jules here for Dnews. Our skin is an amazing organ. It’s a barrier for gross things that might get into your body, it helps us sense the world around us, it keeps us from overheating and overcooling, it even synthesizes Vitamin D when UV rays hit it. But perhaps one of the most impressive things about it, to me at least, is that your skin holds all your blood and guts and mucous, and other fluids and gasses without leaking. Sure, we do stuff like sweat, but that’s a controlled response, often to heat,…

    Demonstration of Stomata on a Leaf Peel – MeitY OLabs

    Demonstration of stomata on a leaf peel Introduction In a plant, the epidermal layer is the outermost layer which contains tiny pores known as stomata. The epidermal layer is found on all above-ground parts of plants, including the petals of flowers, petioles, soft herbaceous stems and leaves. Stomata permit the exchange of gases between the atmosphere and the inside of the leaf. They consist of two specialized cells, called guard cells that surround a tiny pore called stoma. Their main function is to allow gases such as carbon dioxide, water vapor and oxygen to move rapidly in and out of the leaf. In different plants, distribution, number, size and type…

    The Integumentary System

    It’s Professor Dave, let’s look at the integumentary system. With some basics covered regarding two of the types of tissue in the human body, we are ready to start looking at some of the different systems found in the body, and we are going to start with the outermost system, which is called the integumentary system. This is made up of the skin that covers and protects all your other body parts, as well as its derivatives, like certain glands, as well as hair and nails. Let’s look at the structure and function of these components now. The skin is a remarkable organ, acting as the first line of defense…

    Traditional versus Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure Animation.

    Laser skin resurfacing, also known as laser peel or laser lasabrasion, is a procedure using laser beams to reduce certain skin imperfections such as wrinkles, pigment spots, scars and blemishes. The skin is composed of three layers: epidermis (the outermost), dermis and hypodermis. The dermis contains bundles of well organized collagen fibers which contribute to the firmness and smoothness of the skin. As the skin gets older, these fibers become less in number and also less organized, wrinkles and age spots appear. Laser beams destroy the outer layer of the skin removing unwanted wrinkles and spots. At the same time, the heat of the beams stimulates the growth of collagen…

    How Does Moisturizer Work?

    It’s the dead of winter. And… well, you know what that means: curling up with some hot cocoa, watching friends on Netflix and staring at your dry, cracked skin. Wait, what? [Reactions intro] When temperatures drop and heaters kick on, indoor air gets drier. That sends many of us scrambling for a moisturizer to ease the unsightly and irritating effects of dry skin. But what do these products actually do? As the name suggests, their job is to make your skin more moist. Skin dries out by a normal process with a fancy scientific name: transepidermal water loss. Or, if you like funny-sounding abbreviations, tewl. Blood vessels only supply moisture…
