If you have access to Illustrator, I'd say try doing an image trace of that.

But in Photoshop, here's one way to improve your situation: Once you have your desired shapes selected, try using the Select > Select and Mask function and adjust settings to smooth out your selection. (Note: in older versions of Photoshop, this may be called `Refine Edge')

Once you have it selected, you can what you want with it. Hopefully that helps.
