Default How long does it take you to heal

I just wanted to know the average heal rate of most people.

Can you love me more?

Light cuts usually heal in about a week, at the most two. Deep ones heal but will leave scars. It all depends on what you used and how deep. If you need to know about a cut you made, then let me know and I can help.

I DO NOT GO ON HERE ANYMORE. I HAVE LEFT THIS PLACE FOR GOOD AND DON'T INTEND ON COMING BACK. PLEASE DON'T FRIEND REQUEST ME, PRIVATE MESSAGE ME, OR ANYTHING BECAUSE I WILL NEVER SEE IT AND YOU'LL NEVER GET A RESPONSE. THANK YOU.

Basically every cut will leave a scar, some big some barely noticable. But if you break the skin, it will most likely scar. And yea Jessika already explained the healing rates.

It usually takes a few weeks before the wound is closed, all the crust is gone and there's basically just the scar.. I can't really seem to think of just how many weeks, though. I used to recut all the time before but I've totally quit that so. I have one scar now that's just totally closed and all crust gone and such, problem is.. I can't remember exactly when I did it. I have no sense of time. But fear not, I will find out. Last time I cut was about a week ago, and I will keep an eye on it to see when that's closed.

Heal-as in a scar turn completely white, or just until it becomes a scar?

For me, it takes about 2 weeks for it to close up and everything. But for a scar turning white, I have two still pinkish raised scars and I haven't cut in 5 months. So yeah..it takes a while.

Scars turning white takes ages.. The ones I have from like three years ago are white now, so you can draw the conclusion that they must've turned white somewhere along the way, but I remember them being purple for a loong time. I think it really depends on the level of whatnots in your body too, though. I fail to remember what they're called, I'll look it up..

Yes, apparently depends on the level of "melanocyte-stimulating hormone produced by the intermediate pituitary gland"

when i used to cut, mine would take at least three or four days to clear but i heal faster than most people it sounds like.
the longest i think it took me was two weeks and those ones were pretty deep and i blacked out for a couple minutes afterwards.
it all depends on depth.

I used to pick the scabs to prevent it healing so I could have some of mine for over a month before I let it heal.

Mk it's closed up, crust gone, and just a scar now. So it took pretty much exactly three weeks with proper taping closed and taking care of. I would try with no taping for the comparison, but I really can't be bothered to have worse scars in the name of science. Since this is the only cut I've actually counted days on I have no idea just how representative it is but it sounds pretty right compared to the rest of you so I'm guessing that's round about what it normally takes me.

Why do you want to?

I used to not scar until I kept cutting up my arms
Now all I have are scars.
