Introduction: Skin wound healing is a multi-step process. It involves coordinated interactions between growth factors, matrix, microenvironment around the wound, and various cells. Patients’ quality of life in chronic wounds is affected because, in addition to sequential treatments, they incur significant medical costs. This review study aims to summarize the evidence and report current knowledge about tissue engineering, skin wound healing, and therapeutic strategies using bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells were performed. Methods: Thus, much effort has been focused on developing novel therapeutic approaches for wound treatment. Stem cell-based therapeutic strategies have been proposed to treat these wounds. They have shown significant potential for improving the speed and quality of wound healing and skin regeneration. A set of published data on the use of mesenchymal stem cells and a variety of biological scaffolds in wound healing is presented. Besides, we discussed different perspectives. Conclusion: We concluded that by activating bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells on a biological scaffold, the condition of the wound healing process can be improved.
