Will bleaching help? (Photo)

I was burnt in a fire when I was 3. I have one area that is raised. The others are just brown scars. Would bleaching help? It looks like a brown mask.

I would recommend a trial of hydroquinones and Retin-A to help lighten this area.  Proper sun screen is needed as well.  Best, Dr. Green
