Traditionally when you suffer from a bad cut or a painful burn it takes weeks even months for the wound to heel. But recently scientists from the Healthpoint Biotherapeutics based in Forth Worth, Texas began the development of a new and unique product that can change the whole healing process as we know it.
The scientists are working on a portable spray-on-skin that can help you regenerate and heal any skin wounds in just the matter of minutes. The process works by applying protein-based solution to the injured cells of the skin. The relevant mixture of applied proteins then transforms the “bad” cells into stem cells and ultimately accelerates the process of healing from weeks to just days.
In order to load the special “skin cell gun” used by the doctors first a painless skin cell biopsy needs to be performed. The healthy stem cells are then loaded into a sterile syringe and sprayed directly onto the injured area. The innovative technique and special stem cell gun is intended to be used for effective treatment of second degree burns, but it could also help people heal faster from any type of skin wound once it becomes commercially available.
