In brief: Improvement of scars

Scars can be secondary to accidents, burns or surgery.
These behave differently and if the wounds get infected then there is another variable that will impact scarring. Scars mainly improve with time but addiing scar care creams, sunblock use, silicone gel sheets, compression, laser or light therapy and sometimes scar revision are modalities that can help make things better.

In brief: Depends

Some scars are worse than others.
Treatment needs to be customized to your situation. In general, avoid sun, and use silicon gel ( neosporin scar gel or others) to get basic results. I strongly urge you to check with your local plastic surgeon regarding options!
