How Will My Scar Look After Cyst Removal?

I have a small cyst on the back of my upper arm. If I was to get it removed, the doctor told me that they will use the punch hole technique. I was also told that they would have to stitch it up with either two or three stitches. What would the resulting scar look like? Will it eventually fade to a white color?
