Tertiary healing: allowing infection to pass then closing the wound. It can be a few days to weeks.

Second healing

Because primary healing would last for couple hours for fibrin coagulation, second healing phase would last for couple days for macrophage phagocytosis and granulation, tertiary healing would last for couple weeks for epithelial proliferation and quaternary healing would last for a years for scar remodeling.
