Post-Excison Redness

For those who have had excision or anyone with insight, how long does redness last? I know it'd vary from person to person but maybe we could reach some sort of average length.

The two PS I have seen said to expect redness to last for 3-9 months. Obviously 3 compared to 9 is massive. I remember I was red for about 5 weeks after fraxel restore so I can imagine excision last atleast 3 months for me.

My skin stays red for a long time, more than 9 months... But the redness is the least, wish that the scar will be just linear and you won't really bother.

i have a scar from an excision which is still pink after more than 10 years.....pinkness on a skin graft on my arm also lasted several years before going skin colour. My lasered/recelled area stayed pink for 3 months.
