The dermis middle skin layer contains oil glands, hair follicles, sweat glands, and nerve endings. The dermis contains two fibers that decrease in supply with age; Collagen, a protein that provides strength, and elastin for your skin structure or elasticity. The dermis consists of two layers:
The papillary layer:
This layer is the upper, thin layer containing capillaries that aid in regulating temperature and provide nutrients to the epidermis. More to it are lamellar corpuscles that transmit vibrations and pressure sensations and Meissner corpuscles that transmit delicate touch sensations.
The reticular layer:
This layer is the lower, thick layer containing connective tissues and thick collagen batches that provide general strength and elasticity to the skin.
