Worried abt Scar on cheek

Dear Doctor, My son aged 5 years underwent debridement on 21st July for a wound sustained on his left cheek while he was playing. We are very much worried about the scar which might be formed as a result. When can the treatment be started so that the scar is not formed.

hello, yes we can treat the wound before the on set of a scar. would suggest you for a direct consult for me to prescribe medication.
Next Steps
would advice not to pick the wound and let it open. Face is highly vascular (very good blood supply) which allows it to heal fast and with minimum scar.
