The doms will lessen and fade after time. I always get almost disappointed in a way when I lift consistently enough for my doms to stop showing up, just getting stiffness instead. Also active recovery will help your doms fade quicker. As will proper nutrition and lots of water. Glutamine supplementation is also held by some to help healing better but I don't know if it will stop doms. If nothing else, start with lower numbers of sets and work up over time to a higher load to help keep you on the road.
