The hands and feet are the thickest skin on the body, and it is very hard to get a full thickness injury (that will require surgery) in these areas.
I generally treat hand burns with silvadene, or silverlon gloves; aggressive physical therapy and close follow up to ensure that there is no infection and that hand range of motion is preserved.
