Skin Medical Illustrations

The medical illustration team can create original medical illustrations of the skin. This includes illustrations of pathology conditions such as psoriasis and eczema or seborrhoeic dermatitis.

Our illustrations of the skin anatomy have been commissioned for use in anatomical posters for pharmaceutical clients, for web sites specialising in skin care and use within patient education marketing materials. With each target audience in mind, the illustrations can be tailored to suit each brief and the needs of the client.

Facts About The Anatomy of the Skin

The skin is the largest organ of the human body and acts as a natural protective covering. After having illustrated a number of medical projects relating to skin, we realise what a fascinating and hugely complex organ it is.

Made up of specific cells and tissues, skin is made up of about 70% water, 25% protein and 2% lipids. The remainder includes trace minerals, nucleic acids, glycosoaminoglycans, proteoglycans and numerous other chemicals. By acting as a protective barrier from UV radiation and extremes of temperature, it also contains sensory perception, controls the loss of fluids and acts as a thermoregulator.

Consisting of layers, epidermis, dermis and the fatty subcutaneous layer called adipose tissue, the skin continuously is shedding its outer layers, being replaced by the cells of the inner layers. It also varies in thickness due to sex, anatomical location, individuals and age.
