A new technique to make a spray on skin has been developed by Australian surgeon Fiona Wood for treating victims of second degree burns. Before the development of this spray on skin, an extremely painful skin graft was needed to try and repair the burnt skin. 

To make the spray on skin, all that is needed is a small piece of healthy skin and a small "lab" that is about the size of a large sunglasses case. Spray on skin could reduce pain and suffering of many already pained burn victims.
