In brief: Depends

This depends o several factors, nature of scar , how you typically scar and your baseline pigmentation.
Scars tend toward natural pigmentation but the more pigment in journalistic skin the more likely it will be hyper pigmented or even form a "keloid" keeping the scar soft and pliable will help although they are harsh chemically a fade chream may help if nothing else give it some time.
