In brief: Depends on skin type

It really depends on your skin type in terms of color. Fair-skinned redheads, for example may stay red and inflammed looking for months.
Darker skinned inividuals will lay down a great deal of pigment that can remain forever. All of these can be treated with good combination therapy: skin creams, chemical peels, lasers, microneedling and other treatments can do wonders. See a good plastic surgeon.

In brief: Several options

In the early phrases minimizing inflammation will help to reduce post inflammatory hyperpigmentation using topical steroids.
Avoidance of sun exposure may also minimize hyperpigmentation. On occasion peels and or resurfacing may help. Salicylic acid treatments may be beneficial.
