Waiting for Open Wound to Heal

It’s me again! I’m still dressing this open wound. It’s Mohs Surgery. It was a BCC that grew to the size of a dime. The surgery left an open wound about the size of a quarter. The derm. did not advise me well and so I felt compelled to not do stitches. It’s been 5 weeks now and I am dressing this open wound every day. It’s not as deep as it was. But inside the would is slowly showing any progress. How long should this take to at least developed scar tissue across the wound?
