Scientists from Morriston Hospital in Swansea have created pioneering technology to help survivors of acid attacks and burns.
They are using 3D printing to custom make masks which patients with facial burns can wear for up to a year to reduce their scarring.
Several masks will be made for patients as their face develops.
The new technology has meant patients are able to avoid a more painful procedure, which would involve general anaesthetic for children.
Lab services manager Peter Llewelyn Evans said the next step for them would be to have a specialist centre at Morriston Hospital.
We've pioneered this work in the Maxillofacial Lab and Burns and Plastics Centre but we'd really like to have a 3D printing and 3D design centre within the hospital so that surgeons and medical staff can access that from all areas of the hospital and really improve patient care.
