What is the average time for scars to heal after electrocautery?
My dermatologist diagnosed my case as DPN on face. Electrocautery done 3 days back.Now black spots look more prominent. When will the black spots on my face fade?

It normally takes 1-2 weeks for spots to heal after electrocautery treatment. It's important to use sun protection to optimize healing.
Normal healing time after surgery is about 7-10 days but full maturation can take up to 3 to 6 months.
