Cut in arm, bleeding. Time to heal?

I accidentally broke a thick glass which caused a deep cut on the inner forearm on the right hand . I could see the pulse beat as well and a small piece of skin (containing epidermis, dermis and hypodermis) came out which caused lot of blood loss. Its been about 27days i can see the PINK skin healed totally with only a 1% normal pain but the real colored skin did not heal yet. How long will it take to see it as my old hand?

hi. The pink skin which you see at the wound site is actually scar tissue. It will fade with time and might become white in color but the scar tissue might not vanish away completely!!!
