In brief: Never

Scoliosis is progressive.
It can be arrested by bracing, but one does not grow out of it. Surgery, which is only recommended for more severe scoliosis is the only reliable way to correct it.

In brief: Never

You never outgrow scoliosis.
Sometimes growth makes the curve worse. After skeletal maturity, mild curves generally do not progress.
