A number of researches and tests have been conducted within the domain of dermatology to find patterns of wound-healing in individuals. It was found that different individuals exhibit varying healing patterns, and this has intrigued medical scientists to find reasons behind this anomaly. A recent study published in the Science Journal revealed that the differences in the cells that impart strength and resilience to the skin result in varying patterns for different individuals. The study, conducted at Yale, is expected to reek of advancement in the domain of dermatology over the years to come.

Protein Structures Affect Healing Processes

The protein structures that are present directly beneath the skin’s surface were previously believed to be homogeneous in nature. However, recent researches show that these protein structures are characterised by irregular patterns with growing age, and clusters of fibroblasts subsets tend to form inside beneath the skin. For this reason, the healing process in older people is slower relative to the healing mechanism in adults and children. The research also found that a total of three subsets can be identified based the ability of each to accelerate this process. It is expected that the findings of the research shall play a pivotal role in substantiating complex healing mechanisms in the human body.

Results and Findings

The research further showed that microphages also play a key role in lightning scars and healing wounds. It is expected that the results from the study would be employed in other sets of research within the field of dermatology over the years to come. Leading dermatologists are yet to comment on the overall benefits that the field of dermatology could fetch through the results of the study.
