Spray-on skin: Effective in Relieving Stress of Child Burn Victims

The researchers of the University of Queensland carried out an investigation at the Royal Children's Hospital in Brisbane. They reported that Spray –on skin //is effective in curing the scars of child burn victims.

“Microskin” is the product that not only faded away the scars on the children’s skin but also the trauma in their minds caused by the burns.

Australian innovation, the new liquid spray-on skin technology, adheres to the epidermis. One application lasts for 3-4 days. It is water and sweat resistant.

Researchers at the Stuart Pegg Paediatric Burns Centre and UQ's Department of Psychiatry collaborated to evaluate the effect of Microskin on the emotional and behavioural functioning of 20 young patients with burn scarring.

Department of Psychiatry Senior Research Technician Sarah Swannell said 85 percent of all children reported their scars looked either "much better" (40 percent) or "better" (45 percent) with Microskin.

"Eighty percent of children felt happier or 'mostly' happier, as well as more confident, when they had Microskin covering their scars," Ms Swannell said.

Twenty children, with an average age of twelve years were involved in the study. The vast majority of children indicated they enjoyed social outings more when wearing Microskin.

Most children could not feel Microskin on their skin. The study also showed that use of the product lead to improvements in how the patient's family functioned.

Internationally renowned burns specialist Associate Professor Roy Kimble said the research showed Microskin was a significant breakthrough for the psychological damage of burns.

"Children with burns can experience emotional difficulties as a result of physical disfigurement. This product can help alleviate these difficulties and help with a patient's overall recovery and rehabilitation," he said.
