How it Works

  1. Artificial skin is secured over wound during surgery
  2. The skin remains in place for several weeks and allows new tissue to grow in to bottom matrix layer
  3. Top layer provides protection from infection and dehydration

Benefits

  • Protect skin from infection
  • Keep in moisture to prevent dehydration
  • Encourage healing through construction of new tissue by infiltration of epidermal cells and fibroblasts
  • Allow for less severe scarring
  • More readily available

Improvements

  • Biodegradable skin 
  • Doesn’t need to be removed
  • Slowly releasing antibiotic
  • Prevents infection
  • Re freeze dried artificial skin
  • Easier storage and reconstitution
  • Addition of epithelial growth factor and basic fibroblast growth factor
  • Increased regeneration of tissue
