    Day 14, water proof dressing removed (leaving skin bumpy) ,adhesive strips still on:
    Day 21, all coverings just removed, black area below ruler is glue from adhesive strips. It's about 4.5 inches long:
    Day 29, nearly healed:
    Day 58, different lighting, true skin colour is actually better than before! But bruising is visible. The vertical line is from the seam of my trousers. Other wrinkles are model's own.
