Researchers create invisible ‘second skin’ to help erase wrinkles and wounds

Researchers say they have developed a “second skin” made of polymer that is strong, stretchy and adherent, just like the real thing.  The silicon-based film forms from two different creams that are applied one after the other. The combination forms an invisible polymer layer that reinforces the skin beneath, while also providing a breathable barrier layer on top.  They say the biggest challenge was finding something with all those properties of real skin: elastic, invisible, durable, moisturizing, and adheres well. They say the new “second skin” will be used to protect and enhance the skin, as well as combat skin diseases.  It’s amazing how far technology has brought us… by doing its best to copy God’s perfect creation!
