Large soft blister, turned to dark scab. Used liquid nitrogen to treat wart. Time for healing?

My dermatologist used liquid nitrogen to treat a wart on the fingerprint area of my thumb . This was done a week ago. At the time, he told me that there would be a blister and eventually the dead skin would fall off. The area has gone from a large, soft blister to a hard, dark scab like area. How long before I should expect this to fall off?
