Recell Spray-on Skin is the latest cutting-edge technology for treating skin problems such as scars and burns. So it should come as no surprise that a cuttting-edge clinic in Stratford-Upon-Avon is offering the procedure.
Dr. Hugo Kitchen at the Stratford Dermatherapy Clinic,will perform the new procedure which has got doctors and health writers excited at it’s ability to transform people’s lives.
ReCell Spray-On Skin has been developed by Cambridge-based Avita Medical.
The dead skin is removed before a small sample of healthy skin, around the size of a postage stamp, is removed from the patient’s body.
This sample is then placed in the ReCell machine, which uses an enzyme to break down the healthy skin so that it can be suspended in solution.
The solution is then placed into a standard syringe fitted with a nozzle which is used to spray the skin cells over the damaged area.
Special dressings are then applied, but there is no danger of the body rejecting the cells because they come from the patient’s own body.
The dressings gradually lift off themselves as the skin underneath heals, so the patient does not have to go through the painful process of changing them every day.
The Stratford Dermatherapy Clinic is known as the ‘home of beautiful skin’ so offering the ReCell treatment was an obvious step.
