The scars may become less but some may continue to persist even later.The dark colur would fade in the majority,it woud be best to use a sun screen and sun protection like a hat to help the colour to lighten.For the scars once all the scabs have fallen just use Petroleum jelly at bed time to keep them soft,only in 4-6 months time you would know how the scars are finally.
