I understand that wound healing (open wound, closure, closed wound) is basically finished when a closed wound is modulated into a scar.
I further understand that scar healing is comprised of the stages:
- modulation: transformation of a closed wound into a scar
- Remodulation: Achievement of basic healing
- Maturation: The scar becomes further less red and less inflamated
I understood that the entire process should take around 2 years, in a careful approximation.
I have described this scar healing process here in greater detail;
This question is kind of a follow up for the linked above question and does with the same problem presented there (the vast inconsistency I recognized in different articles about scar healing, although I am not a dermatologist nor a plastic surgeon).
When should humans do laser scar treatment (in what, or after what stage of scar healing)?
That is to ask; is doing so right after Remodulation or along maturation is okay, or one should generally wait for completing scar maturation?
