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

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

Rapid Healing: 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.

It varies: 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.

Till then warm soaks keep it clean put on a bandage. If it heals you can be sure it will grow again because the sac that surrounds it is still there as is the cause.

For how long do sugical face scars take to heal?

For how long do sugical face scars take to heal?

Scar resolution: 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.

Can someone tell me how long will it take for a smiley face burn to heal?

Depends on severity: I assume you were burned with a hot car cigarette lighter. If it blistered or turned black it is serious and could take a long time, maybe even need a graft if mild and red just a few weeks. Some will depend on your own bodys healing ability. It will also heal faster if you quit smoking.
