How facial skin wounds could be healed with 3D-bioprinted masks

Scientists at Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine (WFIRM) have created a 3D-bioprinted BioMask that could treat facial wounds or burns with tissue regenerated from the mask.

The BioMask was developed using a customized, bioengineered skin substitute in combination with a wound dressing layer that can snugly fit onto a facial wound to regenerate skin, according to the researchers.
