Hi there,

you have facial injuries,I presume...

Cocaine has a negative effect on the healing. First , because it interferes with the building of new tissue, and second because it leads to vascular constriction, which limitates the perfusion.

I recommend to restrict your cocain use as much as possible... Saves money and is good for your health.

I wish you a soon recovery!
