What is ReCell?
ReCell™ is an innovative device that enables a doctor to apply your own skin cells, collected from a small sample, to an area that requires re-texturing, healing or the reintroduction of pigment. ReCell™ has been developed by Australian of the Year, Dr Fiona Wood, a plastic surgeon and burns specialist.
ReCell™ helps to avoid the formation of scars and can replace old scar tissue or damaged skin with the skin tone and colour of the surrounding tissue. It can also be used to reintroduce skin colour (pigment) to areas of skin that are whiter than the surrounding skin.
Doctors use ReCell™ to treat acute wounds such as burns, old scars or during cosmetic surgery operations to enhance healing and reduce the formation of scars and blotchy skin.
