The dermis is one of the three layers which make the structure of the skin.
It is located between the epidermis and hypodermis.
The dermis contains collagen
, elastin and fibronectin, which maintain it flexible and resilient, allowing the proteins to absorb water and retain a hydrated skin, and immune cells
The dermis receives blood
and redistributes the epidermis.
The dermis helps regulate body temperature
, heal and remove toxins, by evacuating through sweat.
