Is Damage Not Difficult To Repair? 3D Printing Skin Brings A Turn

Nov 08, 2019

In the medical world, the degree of application of 3D printing technology is deepening, and the medical application scenarios covered by it are also increasing. Medical products such as 3D printed dentures, 3D printed prostheses, and 3D printed artificial bones create more possibilities for patients to recover quickly. Today, 3D printed houses, bridges, tables, chairs, toys and other items are more common in people's lives. In the fields of high-end automobiles, aerospace, defense and military, and other areas with high personalization and customization requirements, the role played by 3D printing is particularly important. Similarly, the application of 3D printing in the medical industry has also attracted the attention of the industry.

The research and development and promotion of scientists from all over the world are important factors driving the continuous advancement of 3D printing technology. The application of 3D printing in human organ organization is not only important for the advancement of medical technology in a country, but also for the rapid development of the global medical industry. Over the years, scientists from all over the world have concentrated on solving problems, making 3D printing speed up in the medical scenes such as orthopedics and dentistry. In the past two years, multinational 3D printing technology researchers have also used 3D printed skin as a new research topic.

For damaged skin such as burns and burns, the usual treatment is skin grafting. From the current point of view, clinical treatment of skin grafts can accelerate the healing of damaged skin, but the layer covering the damaged skin will still fall off and cannot be combined with the host cells, which is also a major difficulty in current treatment. How can the damaged skin be better fitted to the wound and the implant? A new research provides new ideas for solving this problem.

According to media reports, researchers at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in the United States have recently developed a 3D printing technology that can produce live skin with blood vessels. The emergence of this technology is an important step towards creating a goal closer to the natural skin grafts of the human body. The mature application of this technology has yet to be tested by time and practice.

In fact, as early as before, researchers have proposed the application of 3D printed skin. Normal cells are isolated from living tissue and the resulting cells are mixed with a hydrogel. Detailed data of the wound is obtained by scanning, and then the artificial skin is printed on the wound by a special biological 3D printer, and the treatment condition of the 3D printed skin can be observed in time to adjust the treatment plan in time.


The birth of 3D printing skin technology is, in the final analysis, to solve the problem that patients do not have enough autologous skin for transplantation because of disease, and it also effectively alleviates the pain that patients have to endure when undergoing skin grafting. It must be said that if the technology is put into practical use, more patients will complete the damaged skin treatment in a more relaxed state and eventually return to a better level. Some researchers have pointed out that in the future, 3D printed skin is likely to grow hair, which is a great boon for users who need hairdressing for thinning hair.


Testing the effectiveness and safety of cosmetics will also be one of the directions for the future application of 3D printed skin. The dazzling array of cosmetics on the market will inevitably make the Miss Amy's sister pick her eyes. How to buy cosmetics suitable for your skin, but also test the eyes of your sister.

With 3D printed skin, sellers can test the effects of liquid foundation, sunscreen, cream, essence and other products on 3D printed skin, so as to more clearly understand the makeup of various cosmetics and improve it. . If the younger sister is a sensitive muscle, you can also use your skin care and beauty products on your 3D printed skin to protect your skin from allergies.


From animal testing to clinical applications, 3D printed skin still has a long way to go. After overcoming many obstacles, 3D printing technology will make more new breakthroughs. It is very likely that the 3D printed skin will be transplanted to the injured part in the future.


At the same time, with the gradual deepening of 3D printing medical research, the development pace of 3D printing materials and 3D printing equipment will accelerate. In order to obtain large-scale applications in the medical industry, 3D printing skins need to be regulated in terms of industry systems, policies and regulations, and application standards in addition to their own safety and practical factors. For the future of 3D printed skin, people can expect more and imagine.
