In brief: Quickly

If the burns are first degree, like a bad sunburn, the tenderness should resolve in 24-48 hours.
If they are second degree(blisters), then they will take longer, depending on the area of the body and depth of the burn, but you should see a doctor for this if they are of significant size with blisters.
