A plaster made with a protein found in very young skin has been found to speed up wound healing and leave no scars. 
The material contains fibronectin, a protein that helps assembly skin tissue during development. In a recent study by Harvard University, mice treated with the fibronectin patch healed on average three days faster compared with mice whose wounds were just covered with a plastic film.
