Just being pedantic, but it's not to removed blown highlights, just overexposed bits.
Once detail is "blown" digitally, whether at capture or at scanning, then the detail is lost and no amount of burning in will help. Likewise, no amount of dodging of the shadows is going to raise detail if it's solid black.

Yes, apologies for the mistaken terminology. The burn tool will bring back over-exposed bits.
