I got burnt from wax, please suggest me remedy

I went to a salon today and ended up with a red mark on my upper lip. I'm guessing I got burnt from the wax. I applied ice, cream, and aloe vera (which stung like crazy) but is there anything else I can do ? It looks horrible and so embarrassed by it.

We need to know hw deep is the burn,if it is only red then it is superficial but if you have a blister_bubble then it may be deep;none the less the treatment does not change. If it burns a lot then apply wet napkin till the burning stops and apply Petroleum jelly or vaseline 4-5 times/day,It should heel soon, if you desire mail your photogrpah on,to get a better opinion.

I have got exactly the same problem and its been exactly a month now. I tried vitamin E oil but still no difference. Could you please tell me if your scars diminishes or did you get any more information to work on it. it is soooo embarrassing to have such a mark right under my nose.
