scars made by a violin bow

This is probably a silly question, but I figured I should ask here anyway. I'm currently writing a story that takes place in modern times, and I'd like one of my main characters to have a scar along one side of his face. I've already brainstormed ideas as to how he managed to get this scar-- I'm just not completely certain if the circumstances would lead to him having one, or what it would look like if they did. I've tried several different keywords on Google but I think this question is a bit too specific.

If someone was whipped or hit in the face with a violin bow, would it leave a scar? If so, what kind of scar? How would it look? And how hard would the abuser have to hit her victim to leave a mark that lasts a lifetime?

The woman with the violin bow is somewhere in her late sixties or early seventies, on the powerful (and crazy) side, while the one she's hitting is a smaller, scrawnier fifteen-year-old boy. I imagine most of the violins she owns would be antiques, though I can see her looking after them very well.

Any information at all would be appreciated!
