Do you have suggestions for a good method to extract lymphocytes from mouse skin for cytokine profile analysis?

We are looking to extract CD4+ T cells from diseased mouse skin for lymphocyte analysis. So far the protocols we have tried either yield only ~500 cells from a 1 cm sq of skin (healthy c57Bl/6 mice) or have such a harsh liberase treatment that some markers such as CD4/8 that we need for our FACS analysis are lost and all are rather inconsistent. If anyone has a good protocol we would really appreciate your advice!
