hypopigmentation on an old injury site from TCA after time outdoors

Hi. In October 2018 I did something risky and went to a derm to try to fix some of the pores on my nose. we tried tca on a small site and I had pretty disastrous results. It took a long time to heal (like 4-5 weeks). It was actually looking decent (besides the much bigger pore that resulted). In the end of may 2019(7 months after) I went on a hiking trip and then after that I noticed that the site of the area I did the TCA became white. I've never noticed that before so I'm sure it was something new. What's going on? Is this permanent? I'm assuming its hypopigmentation? Maybe due to the all day exposure to the sun?

Here are some pics this week. This is 3 or so months after that trip. upon looking at these pics I think the whiteness has faded some but its hard to tell as I stare at it everyday.
