How long does it take for your credit to improve?

How long does it take for your credit to improve? My credit score is in the mid 500s. Everything that is on my credit I have just recently paid off completely or am making consecutive on time payments. I have a CC that I had like an $800 balance on and bought it down to about $200, which I'll prolly just pay off at the end of this month or April. I was just curious as to how long it takes for your score to go up. Is there anything else I can do to improve my score/report besides continuing to pay off the remainders of everything?
