it depends....I give both, depending on the location of the laceration. If it's a facial or scalp laceration, or one that has other risk factors, like needing antibiotics for example, I will usually give a level 3. If it's on a body area that doesn't require as much 'finesse' (for lack of a better word!), like a forearm, or thigh, I usually find a level 2 is appropriate. Hope this helps!
