C shaped scar white in colour. I had it from childhood. It was not white; what should I do? (Photo)

I had a hit with a aluminium wire in childhood. The scar was not very deep. I decided to take laser treatment. I had fractional laser. It increased the scar in length by bring my white skin out. The original wheatish skin I guess got burnt. Deepth has reduced but it is more visible now. Plz suggest sepecific treatment. I dnt want to make it more worst. I m scared . Will it be time consuming treatment
