Printing Human Skin

Printing Human Skin
A new device able to 3D print sheets of human skin could allow patients to print their own skin for transplant.

The printer, from a team at Carlos III University of Madrid, creates the functioning tissue using bio-inks made of “biological components” layered in a careful way. The skin tissue consists of three layers, and could be used for testing cosmetics or—if the patient’s own skin cells are used—as a skin transplant.

Can rubbed skin be renewed after sport and heavy activities? Especially heels, which easily get dry and peel off.
