How long does it take to recover from a scalp injury

If there is no bleeding on the skin surface and only subcutaneous bleeding, recovery is usually relatively fast, with complete absorption of the hematoma in 1 to 2 weeks. If a patient develops a scalp laceration and has a debridement suture, and there is no local infection, along with pharmacological intervention, recovery can be complete in as early as 4 to 7 days. If the patient has a local skin infection, the first step is to actively fight the infection and clear the wound, and the recovery time is relatively longer.
