Skin Cross Section

There are 2 main skin layers: the outer layer (epidermis) and the inner layer (dermis). The epidermis of thick skin has five layers: stratum basale, stratum spinosum, stratum granulosum, stratum lucidum, and stratum corneum. The dermis on the other hand is formed of two layers of connective tissue that compose an interconnected mesh of elastin and collagenous fibers, produced by fibroblasts.

The 7 layers of skin

  • The Basal Cell Layer
  • The Squamous Cell Layer
  • The Stratum Granulosum and the Stratum Lucidum
  • The Stratum Corneum
  • The Papillary Layer
  • The Reticular Layer

How do create a Skin Cross-section template?

  1. You can create your shape in a vector program and import/ insert it as a vector or raster image. The other option is to use MyDraw’s Basic shapes and connectors and make your custom shape.
  2. Once you are happy with the custom shape you could include it in your Library.
  3. Click on the textbook icon on the left side of the bar and choose “New Library”. Name the library and drag and drop the shape in it.
  4. Then right-click with the mouse on the Library tab and choose “Save as”.
  5. Choose the folder location on your computer and save it as a .nlb file.
  6. You can also use one of the shapes from Healthcare
  7. For future use, you could always add the newly created library to other diagrams.
  8. Once you have created your diagram/ template you can save the document in one of MyDraw’s native formats or export it in a preferred file format(PDF, SVG, EMF, VSDX, etc.).
  9. You can also export the document as a raster image.
