Six Weeks: Scars achieve optimal healing by six weeks from the time of repair. Scar remodeling continues for a year or two beyond this time.

6 to 8 weeks: Scars start to settle down in 6 to 8 weeks. After that they can take a year or more to fully mature. During that time you can help the scars with massage and sunblock protection.
