Neck burns such as yours can typically be treated with surgical removal and very meticulous repair. The scar will never be "invisible" but it is typically possible to improve this type of scar to a significant degree. There are many options for scar improvement but a widened, atrophic, discolored scar is typically treated with surgical scar revision. I hope this information is helpful.
