How long is the scar tissue healing time?
Skin healing occurs in the first 7 days, but continues to mature over 6-12 months. The scars must be cared for and you should avoid touching or feeling along the scar line for the first 8-weeks. Mr Turton gets his patients to tape the scar for 3-months to keep the scar line like a fine pencil line. The scars gradually fade over the first 12-months to a pale colour. This can be speeded up by using bio oil on the scar after 3-months, or a silicone gel called Dermatix (only available over the counter).
