The Skin Spray technique is a unique, patented process which transforms a thin, split- thickness skin sample into a regenerative Epithelial Suspension that can be immediately spayed or dripped onto wounds to stimulate healthy new skin growth.
The Skin Spray technique has been designed to improve the appearance of scars, it is used for acne scarring, and sun-damaged skin, wrinkles and depigmented lesions associated with Vitiligo and piebaldism and has safely been used in thousands of procedures worldwide.
A small sample of skin is collected from an area of healthy skin. The sample is about the size of a postage stamp. While the surgeon is preparing the area to be treated, the skin will be placed into the ReCell device.
This will separate the cells allowing the surgeon to spray it onto the damaged skin area. The damaged skin is prepared by removing the top layers of skin using a dermal roller. The healthy cells are applied to the wound where they grow and reconstruct a skin that matches the surrounding tissue in texture and colour.
After the operation, the treated and donor area will be covered with a dressing. The area may be numb to begin with and will sting soon after the operation. After about a week your dressing will be removed by the doctor.
