How to minimize scar from forehead laceration and stitches? (Photos)

This is my injury before going to ER and 3 days old forehead wounds with stitches. Am I healing well? I'm so worried that the upper part is still fresh and looks like it will be bigger than the lower part? My doctor advised me to have to have the suture removed on the 7th day. Will this leave train marks? I hope someone will answer.

Forehead scars and stitch marks

I would suggest early removal of your stitches when appropriate; followed by fractional laser and topical Plato's Scar Serum.
