Transdermal: Why it doesn't work, how we can make it work.
- Figure out how skin cell production is regulated in the body, what chemical and electrical signals need to be sent out to tell the skin to grow.
- Develop a material that the skin can bond to that is not permeable, is tough enough to stand up to regular abuse, and possibly works symbiotically with the skin cells to keep their bond strong.
- Use the usual transdermal implant procedure (lift skin, poke hole a little to the side, push implant in, slide over, poke hole, pull implant through)
- Provide chemical, electrical, hormonal therapy to the skin cells to tell them soup's on and they need to grow onto the implant.
I'm not saying it's easy or that I've got it all figured out, but it seems like it can be done with some hard work. I don't think step 1 will be so hard, but 2 is a hell of a project. What do you think? Have I forgotten some consideration?
