If you press the two sides of the cut together, a wound starts to heal nearly instantaneously, but the healing wound won#039;t be able to hold together without help like a butterfly bandage. If it needed stitches, rule of thumb is 10 to 14 days till it#039;s totally healed. Less for a cut not requiring stitches. It just depends on the depth of the cut.
There is no definite period of time because of the multiple variables like size of cut, infections, your age and location of cut. However, for a light cut it may take only some hours to one week for the wound to close.
