Hi Pat. I’m not sure what info you are needing exactly? If a graze or a cut or any wound for that matter is very deep, the upper layers of skin will close up and heal first, this is part of the natural healing process. However, depending on the depth and severity of the injury and depending on whether or not nerves have been damaged, the healing for the deeper level can be anything from 3 – 6 months (and in some cases even a little longer).
