BN1637: Skin Layers

SEM of Human Skin. The top layer of the epidermis is composed of flattened, dead skin cells that form the surface of the skin. The dead cells from this layer are continuously being shed and replaced by cells from the living epidermal layer below it (red). The lowest layer (not seen here) is the dermis. The skin is the body's largest organ, accounting for around 15% of the body's weight. © Eye of Science/Science Source #sem #micrograph #skin #medical #sciencephotos #stockimages…
