How long does it take for cuts on the face to heal?

It depends

Cosmetics
If the skin edges are approximated (e.g. sutures) it takes about a week. If left open to heal, can take longer depending on how wide the cut is. Once initial wound has covered in skin, takes about 6 months for the scars to mature.

How long does it take for an open wound to heal on face?

Rapid Healing

Head-face
The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, Hibiclens, Betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation ( red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (Motrin, Advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected.

How long does it take for a first degree face burn from waxing, to heal? Will it keep scars?

1-2 weeks.

Scarring
First-degree burns -- superficial ones that are red, but not blistered -- generally heal within a couple of weeks, without scars. You can apply a mild OTC hydrocortisone cream sparingly twice a day to speed the process along a bit, if you wish. "Burn creams" like Silvadene are unnecessary.

How long does it take to heal from cosmetic surgery on the face?

It varies

Smoking
To answer this you need to be more specific as to what kind of surgery you are asking about. In general, facial healing is fairly quick. Most bruising will be gone within 7-14 days. Most swelling goes away in a few weeks but will continue to improve for up to a year. Smoking and other health problems can delay healing

Burns from teeth whitening are usually gone within 2-3 days. If this is spreading it's not a result of the peroxide and you should see your doctor.

You could have injured or shifted your neck vertebrae. Your doctor might consider imaging given the nature of the injury and the length of time you've had pain.

For how long do sugical face scars take to heal?

Scar resolution

Cicatrix
When our bodies sustain an injury, the immediate response is inflammation (red, hot, tender swelling). This is the body increasing the blood flow and bringing healing factors to the area and also the veins expand to carry bad stuff away. As healing occurs, new tissues fill in that are different than normal and less elastic. This is a scar. Over time it will fade in color but always be there.

How long should it take for a cut on my face to heal?

5-10 days

Head-face
An otherwise uncomplicated cut on the skin will usually heal within 5-10 days. If there is a complicating infection, foreign body or a wide gash, healing will be delayed.
