The 'Skin Gun '

Share this article:


This video describes the use of a still experimental "skin gun," which uses cells from a burn victim's own skin to create a water-based solution that, when sprayed on the damaged skin, can allow for growth of new, healthy skin that heals in as little as four days. As infection during the recovery period is the biggest risk for burn victims, this technology can be life-saving.
