Have you ever got burned by fire or really hot water? If it’s just a very small area we would just run our burned skin in cold water for a few seconds and put some nourishing cream or aloe on it. But what if it’s a huge burn? What if the burn was so bad that most of your skin got destroyed? I was amazed to find out that RenovaCare has something to help us when we have a chronic wound.
RenovaCare is a biotechnology company that focuses on developing autologous stem cell therapies for the regeneration of human organs. One of the company’s promising methods of healing burned skin is by using the skin gun, which sprays skin stem cells on a burned or chronic wound to promote rapid healing. The process is basically the same as any other stem cell therapies. It collects the patient’s own stem cells, suspended in a water solution and put it in the skin gun. The skin gun works like an air brush and sprays the solution onto the wounded area.
The healing process is said to be quick and can heal a burn in just a few days! A state trooper healed his second-degree burns in an unfortunate bonfire accident in four days. Although the skin gun is still in development stage and has not been approved by the FDA, RenovaCare has filed a 510(k) submission with the FDA and hoped to do clinical trials very soon.
