In brief: It will change but..
Never go away. Scars cannot be removed; they are permanent.
They do go through a process of maturation and softening that takes 6-18 months and results in the scar being less apparent.

In brief: It will mature
Scars mature over one year. Everyone is different.
In most people scars will improve, but only time will tell.
