Mend one hour, First Aid ten minutes?

The MEND power confuses me when compared to First Aid skill.

"An hour of rest and a successful test of kinesis
removes a Wound. If the test is failed or the psi
doesn’t heal all of her Wounds, she may simply
try again, though each test requires the full hour."

But yet the First Aid skill says it takes ten minutes:

"Healing Wounds generally takes 10 minutes,
though the GM may alter this as fits the particular
circumstances."

This is the big difference to me.

“Each healer may only attempt first aid on a victim’s wounds once, and only within an hour of the injury. She can try to remove any new wounds should they occur, however.”

Mend doesn’t have such restrictions. You can heal all your wounds eventually at any time as long as you have the time to do so. I think of Mend as being more reliable, just slower.
