The outline is the result of soot and rapid ageing on the surface. Shurly you don't wish to sand this effect off. A bacteria is now on the surface and rubbing with #0000 steel wool would work and is less intrusive. You can achieve minor improvment on this soot outline with a light cleaning using hydrogen peroxide, wipe it on and leave it for a few minutes, wipe it off and buff dry. Repeat a few times till improvment appears, next apply Watco Teak Oil twice a day for three days, wax twice.
