Stitches on forehead removed after 1 month, scars. Will it be cured?

My daughter had three stitches in her forehead a month ago. We were they were dissolving and that we did did not need to have them removed. Well, after a trip to the doctor for an unrelated matter one month later the stitches were removed because they did not dissolve. Now she has vertical indentations across the scar . Will these heal?
