Skin healing: A 33-day time-lapse in 10 seconds

For a visual example of what skin looks like when it’s healing, watch this short but impressive timelapse chronicling a wound healing over 33 days. Hungary-based YouTuber Kolo / Time Lapse recorded the scrape in 2018, taking a photo every four hours, six times a day.

This silent time-lapse is so smooth thanks to the consistent lighting and placement of the healing finger, aided by a custom mold for the creator’s hand to sit in for every photo.
