The process isolates cells from healthy part of the skin, puts them in the gun, and sprays it on. Rather than taking weeks to regrow fragile skin, it takes just hours to biopsy, isolate the cells, and spray the cells. The example patient had suffered severe 2nd degree burns and within 4 days, the burn unit said he was healed.
Stem cells applied to the skin on a clean, fresh and well vascularized third degree burn would make an excellent bed for skin growth. For years, the use of split thickness skin grafts have been the main stay for burn treatment. A well surgically cleaned burn may respond in the same manner. This is an exciting technology. The burn ‘bed’ will support such growth. I am not surprised at the results, but there is a long way for this technology to be applied to the scalp for balding men to include hair.
