Today is my annual skin check. ・・・
Skin cancer is a disease of the body's skin cells usually as a result of skin cell damage. It begins in the lower layer of the epidermis (the outside layer of the skin). The epidermis contains three different types of cells: squamous cells, basal cells and melanocytes. That’s where the names for the different types of skin cancer come from: basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma.

thehyperpigmentationclinic - Our treatment consists of a mandelic peel which removes the top layer of pigmented cells before taming hyperactive melanocytes.

This double action equalises the over-production of melanin resulting in smooth, consistent and even skin tone.

yasminalhayderi Melanoma is a cancer that develops in #melanocytes, the pigment cells present in the skin. It can be more serious than the other forms of skin cancer because it may spread to other parts of the body (metastasize) and cause serious illness and death. About 50,000 new cases of melanoma are diagnosed in the United States every year.
Because most melanomas occur on the skin where they can be seen, patients themselves are often the first to detect many melanomas. Early detection and diagnosis are crucial. Caught early, most melanomas can be cured with relatively minor surgery.

williammwazi M-E-L-A-N-I-N ( Super-Man's power comes from the Sun.....) #melanosomes leave the #melanocytes and move into other cells in the epidermis. Mostly #brown or #black in colour, #melanin deposits determine the skin #pigment which varies depending on the number and distribution of the #melanosomes. Aside from determining skin colour, the light absorbent #melanin protects the #dna against #uvradiation from the #sun and it is considered a potential candidate in melanoma treatment.

nrglc_wv In an effort to understand why, if we as humans started our journey from Africa, do we look so different now? What does it mean when someone is a darker or lighter shade of brown? Or has more or less body hair? Upper elementary #beehive students studied skin and its layers as well as migration patterns of humans and their differing diets to answer these questions and more! #nrglc #montessori #science #anatomy #skinstudy #facinghistoryandourselves #ancestory #genetics #migration #melanin #melanocytes #layersoftheskin #3dart 4w

motivated_mamacita See the line going down my belly which is called the linea nigra. This is caused by a hormone produced by your growing placentam, which stimulates melanocytes in the skin to produce extra pigment. This darkens the nipples also. Mostly happens to Latin and Black mommies. Good times! 1mon
