Everything you need to know should be in the 'Red Marks and Hyperpigmentation' forum FAQ and the 'Scar Treatment' forum. You might want to browse through both to get a better idea of how to distinguish between the two, and what measures to take to avoid or heal them.

Essentially, red marks are temporary inflammations, manifestations of the healing process that can anywhere from a few months to more than a year to fade, while scar tissue is quasi-permanent; the discolouration/indentation may or may not fade over time, and most last for years. Check out the scar FAQ for a primer on the different kinds of scars.
