Jay Leno is on the mend.
The 72-year-old television host is receiving various treatments for his third-degree burns, which he sustained in a gasoline fire earlier this week. In a video obtained by Inside EditionLeno can be seen lying in a hyperbaric chamber where his left arm is bandaged to his elbow, and his right hand is bandaged.
Leno’s face in the footage, from a brief glimpse, can be seen entirely wrapped in gauze.

Dr Peter Grossman explained to the program that a hyperbaric chamber helps to “decrease swelling” and “increase blood flow with good oxygenation” and decrease bacteria.
A few days earlier, Grossman – who is Leno’s doctor at the Grossman Burn Centre – revealed that Leno was in “good” condition after he underwent a surgery described as a “grafting procedure.”
“His injuries are serious, his condition is good,” Grossman said, noting that Leno “did well” during the first surgery.
“He is in good spirits today,” Grossman added.

In a statement released earlier this week, Leno confirmed he had been involved in a gasoline fire and had suffered “some serious burns.”
The Jay Leno’s Garage host explained that over the weekend, he had been working on his 115-year-old car when a spark and a simultaneous fuel leak triggered an explosion in the 1907 White Steam Car.
Leno credited his friend Dave with saving his life by immediately jumping on the fire and snuffing the flames out.

”I am OK,” Leno said days later in a statement. “Just need a week or two to get back on my feet.”
Grossman confirmed that the second- and third-degree burns Leno sustained in the freak accident covered his chest, hands and face.
According to Grossman, however, it’s anticipated that Leno will make a “full recovery” from his injuries, though it hasn’t been specified how long the recovery process could take.
”As I’m getting to know Jay, I don’t think it’s going to be months,” Grossman revealed. “I think he’s the kind of guy who’s gonna move forward.”
