New research suggests melanins in human keratin may play a role in scarring, suggesting that the pigment may cause the appearance of pigmentation in the face.
In the study, published in the journal Nature Communications, scientists found that human skin melanin, which is responsible for pigmentation, contains a protein called iridobenzylidobutylidone (IBD) which is thought to be involved in scar formation.
It also showed that human melanin levels, which are related to melanin synthesis in the skin, were significantly higher in people who were scarred at a younger age.
Professor Michael De Vries from the University of Queensland’s School of Human Biology, who led the research, said the findings suggested melanin may play an important role in the appearance and behaviour of skin.
“It’s probably the most widely studied, well studied pigment, but it’s also the least understood,” he said.
“In this study we found a way to investigate melanin’s role in how people develop scarring.”
Professor De Vues said that while the pigment in human face skin was known to be responsible for the appearance or appearance of scars, it was not clear what role it played in scarting.
“There are many other factors that affect skin pigmentation such as whether it is sun-sensitive or not, whether it’s dry, oily, damaged, or damaged and how it is maintained,” he explained.
“So it’s really important to know what is going on and what are the mechanisms by which it affects the skin.”
Professor Michael’s research also looked at whether there was an association between pigmentation and the severity of facial scarring.
The researchers looked at skin and hair samples from 20,000 people and found that melanin had a significant impact on how well people could maintain their skin and their facial scarred appearance.
“The results showed that the skin that was scarred and the hair that was exposed to the sun had the highest amount of melanin and the most significant impact, but also the most pigmented skin,” Professor De Vuces said.
“So we think that it may be that the melanin is in the hair or the skin itself that’s responsible for producing the scarring in the scar.”
This is something that we need to understand further.””
We think that skin is a really important part of the face, and the skin is what is causing the appearance.
“He said more research was needed to see if there was a relationship between pigments in skin and scarring and the appearance.
He said that the finding was a step towards finding a better understanding of the relationship between skin pigments and scar formation in the human face.”
I think this is very exciting,” he added.”
These are very interesting results, and we need more work to understand this better.
