A plastic surgeon: Facial lacerations, if not treated properly, can leave permanent scar. Initially letting it bleed a bit will steriliize the area. Clean with cold water, cover with gauze (sterile if have), compress area gently, then would go to dermatologist, plastics derm , or plastic surgeon. If not available, go to er, and they will contact appropriate specialist.
