Oxygen is the basis for wound healing, and it begins at the cellular level. Smoking deprives the body of the oxygen it needs to repair wounds and build new tissue. not many people know that smoking also slows down the healing process.

Wound healing is a well-coordinated sequence of events in which signalling and remodelling of the extracellular matrix (ECM) are integral components. dehydrated human amnion/chorion membrane (dHACM) has demonstrated clinical efficacy in the enhancement of wound repair compared with standard compression therapy.
A chronic wound is a lesion that doesn’t heal in a specific time but shows delayed wound healing. Many factors could lead an acute wound to become a chronic wound such as diabetes with its complications, low blood flow, soft tissue infection and so many other conditions.
The approach of regenerative medicine has emerged as an alternative to provide additional therapeutic options to potentially improve wound healing.
The dermis is the mesenchymal component of the skin, separated from the epidermis by the basement membrane. . The dermis comprises two structurally different layers named the papillary and reticular layer. Alexandra L. Rippa and Coll published this scientific article about the different steps of the wound healing and which cells are involved in the healing process.
Human amniotic membranes (hAMs) have shown promising results in recent studies aimed at improving wound healing. Ben Samuel John and Coll conducted a study on the 2019 full-thickness skin defects in 4 groups of 6 rats with one wound each.
