August 06, 2013, 5:35 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Microskin PLC (GXG: MSKN), a revolutionary second skin technology company, announced today that it has received advice from the US Patent and Trademark Office that their patent will be granted.
The company produces a simulated second skin individually formulated to color correct a range of conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis and vitiligo.
Microskin PLC's wholly owned subsidiary, Microskin International, has already achieved considerable success both in Australia and overseas including establishing franchises in the US, Europe, the Middle East and Indonesia.
Executive chairman, Barry Amor, says the patent marks a major milestone in overseas expansion for Microskin PLC.
“This patent will protect our intellectual and material property within Microskin PLC, excluding others from making, using, offering for sale, selling or importing our product throughout the US,” Mr Amor says.
“Receiving a patent for Microskin in the US ensures our hard work and years of research are respected in the industry.
“We believe the US patent will assist in the granting of patents in China and Australia, with patents already approved in Canada, India and New Zealand.”
Statistics show the average time for patent applications to be processed in the US in 2012 was 2.7 years.
“We have been at the forefront of research and development of a second skin-technology, so to be granted this patent after such rigorous processing is a great achievement for Microskin,” Mr Amor says.
The US is already home to two Microskin clinics in New York and California.

The concept of Microskin, a world-first skin simulation technology, was originally conceived after realising that make-up was the only method of concealing or camouflaging skin conditions. What transpired after many years of research into cosmetic chemistry as well as developing specially designed software used to read human skin, was a system to develop a spray-on simulated application individually formulated for each client's skin. Microskin will not rub off, is completely waterproof, allows the skin to breath and sweat, and lasts for several days. Since the opening of its first clinic in Brisbane in July 2005, Microskin has assisted people from all over the world with skin related conditions such as, vitiligo, birthmarks, burns, eczema, lupus, keloid scarring.
