Is there anyway that I can get rid of a bad burn without surgery? (photo)

My hair caught on fire when I was four years old which was 12 years ago and I was wondering if there is anyway that I can get rid of this scar.

Melarase creams for burn scars

Our office specializes in scar treatment. For the burn scars, we would recommend use of Melarase creams for the pigmentation, Plato's Scar Cream for the thick areas, and fractional resurfacing for texture.
