Caption: A skin cut-away showing melanocytes in the epidermis decreasing with age. Skin changes are among the most visible signs of aging. The number of cells containing pigment known as melanocytes decreases over time, making the skin of elderly people appear thinner, more pale and almost translucent or clear. At the same time, the melanocytes that remain increase in size, resulting in large, pigmented spots, sometimes known as age or liver spots. (with titles).
