Cut Healing Time Reference: Ringside and Training Principles
chapter by Dr. Flip Homansky

“0-21 days – simple healing
21 days to 6 weeks – tensile strength starts (cut looks good but can re-open easily)
6-12 weeks – maturation of scar
3 months you have 80% healing (cross bridging old fibres)
10 months complete healing
We don’t let cuts heal adequately and this is one reason they re-open.
Suspensions are important in this regard.”
