How Many Layers Of Skin Does A Human Have
Skin layers: The skin functions as a protective barrier that interfaces with a sometimes-hostile environment. It is also very involved in maintaining the proper temperature for the body to function well. It gathers sensory information from the environment, and plays an active role in the immune system protecting us from disease. The three layers are epidermis, dermis and hypodermis.See 1 more doctor answer
Variable: It is completely dependent on what the chemicals are. Recommend resubmitting & letting us know the specific chemicals you are referring to.
Heads or Tails?: The average human head circumference is 55 cm (21.6535433070866 in) in females and 57 cm (22.4409448818898 in) in males. An adult head weighs around 10 to 11 pounds (4.53592368444 to 4.989516052884 kg). Finally, 6 to 7 inches (15.24 to 17.78 cm) wide and 8 to 9 (20.32-22.86 cm) inches long.* *This information provided to you courtesy of ISIS.
Where: Dermal fillers can work to increase the appearance of subcutaneous tissue. If the question relates to a weight issue generally seeing a MD and dietician may help.
Subcutaneous: Injections are usually subcutanous (in a skin layer) or intramuscular (in a muscle).
Ideal to cover: It until it heals completely to protect wound area from further injury and prevent foreign material embedding into wound which may result tattoo effect. Although uninfected wounds will have bacterial seal in 48 hrs.
Unlikely: Once a person has reached adulthood the growth of the skull is clearly complete. The sutures have fused. The skull cannot decrease in size. Externally, there may be the appearance of some decrease in head size if there is a change in the skin thickness or changes in the amount of fatty tissue. But the actual head size really doesn't change because of the constraints of the skull.
Yes, but...: When the top layer of skin cells is scraped off, there is no bleeding. The remaining cells just multiply and become the new top layer of cells. If unlucky, there can be a color change at that spot for a while. Protecting that spot from sun exposure during healing may help decrease the chances of color changes there.
As fast as possible: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected.

I fell long boarding two of the scrapes went through the outer layer of skin and the other a little deeper how long will it take to heal.?
Not enough informati: The answer lies in details which you omit. See a DR. Water is good for abrasions. Keep them lubricated with vaseline or Aquaphor. Bioclusive membranes are often excellent. Avoid peroxide, iodine, or any other antiseptics. Avoid silvadene (silver sulfadiazine). Avoid bacitracin, neosporin, or any other antibiotics. Do not apply any dry dressing which may become glued to the wounds.
My friend caught his head on a piece of metal and just took the top layer of skin off and it bled for a bit but then stopped what should he do?
Keep it clean: Hard to say without seeing it. If you cannot separate the edges, it probably won’t need stitches. You should wash the area carefully with soap and water and apply an antibiotic ointment. Repeat this once or twice daily until it heals. Consider seeing a doctor within the next 24 hours if the bleeding doesn’t stop, if the area is larger than about 2.5 cm, or if it goes completely thru the skin.
I got a cut shaving about a week ago and it hasn't healed but it's grown larger (like a think layer of skin off) and there are sores appearing.?
Infection?: If this cut is one week old and is seemingly getting worse and not better, then this may have become infected. You should have an evaluation to see if you need an antibiotic.

Keloid?: You MAY be developing keloids. If so, your body is healing very well but producing an over-abundance of tissue in the process. This is more common in people w/brown or dark skin than w/pale skin. Please see your doctor. Consider using liquid Vitamin E oil on the scars. Peace and good health.
