Thank you for your question. They should repigment back in over time.  This  should be temporary, as long as the injury was not too deep. Make sure to avoid the sun and wear daily sunblock. Get evaluated by a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon for an evaluation and  advice on the time period to wait and a plan of action. I hope this helps.
