What Treatment to Use to Reduce Light Pale Skin to a 3 Year Old Baby Caused by a Second Degree Burn by Liquid?

Hi, my son is 3 yrs.old and nine months ago he suffered a liquid burn on his forehead at age 2. Burn was treated properly by doctor and no there was infection. Doctor said he did not think it will leave a scar just to give it time. I am now worried and seeking help on what I can do in order to help my son because the skin is a little bit lighter in color than his natural skin color which is lighter than tan. Is there anything I can do to help him obtain his natural skin color on the burn?

Using laser to treat white scars on the face


White and hypopigmented scars on the face and body are hard to treat.  I have found that fractional co2 laser works best in certain skin types.
