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 for radiesse to dissolve from face?

Radiesse efficacy

Round_face
The manufacturer advertises the efficacy duration for Radiesse as 14 months. In clinical practice, I tell my patients that it lasts about a year but not in all patients. See your Plastic surgeon for an evaluation and s/he can best guide you about this and other fillers.

How long does it take for amoxiciolen to take down the swelling in my face?

Too broad a question

Good_question
Is the swelling due to an infection? What's causing the infection (tooth, gum, other structure)? Acute or chronic? Where is the swelling? What is the dosage and frequency of the Amoxicillin? What is your age, general health and any medical conditions? The list goes on..... Have the dentist or physician who is treating you answer that question. I assume\hope you are not self medicating yourself!
