Hydroquinone based creams will help improve pigmentation.

It looks like you have residual pigmentation on the injury - am unable to appreciate the textural changes though. You could try 2% - 4% hydroquinone based creams for a month or so. A visit to the dermatologist would definitely help in getting better results in case of textural change as well.

Burn scar on the hand - MelaPeel and Melarase

I would begin treatment with Melarase AM and Melarase PM cream, followed by a once monthly application of a chemical peel such as MelaPeel for skin lightening.
