Would you use a skin gun to get rid of wrinkles?

Here is an amazing new technology that could represent a new way to treat skin wrinkles.  It is being tested for use for treating skin burns but I could see how this could be adapted to creating youthful skin for people who are dissatisfied with their wrinkles.  Maybe in the future rather than getting face lifts, people will just be getting their own skin stem cells sprayed onto their face.

It’s a very cool technology.  The inventor says it’s like paint spraying.  They take the patient’s own stem cells and spray it onto the arm.  The whole procedure takes only 90 minutes.  Amazing.

I wonder how long it will take for this to be tested for cosmetic procedures.

    There is already a stem cell facelift procedure that involves the injection of fat, stem cells, and growth factor. It caused quite a stir a couple of years ago and got a lot of media attention. I haven’t heard much about it since then so perhaps the results weren’t as good or as predictable as was originally hoped.

    I’m not so sure that I could get behind the ick factor of this. I can’t see myself spraying skin onto my skin. Thanks for the write up about the technology. It is definitely interesting to hear.
