Is there any remedy to remove the burn mark left on my upper lip during waxing ?

I happen to wax my upper lip day before yesterday with face wax strips. But it happen to leave marks on my face like a burn was red intially but now it has eventually turned a lil black. Is there a way to get rid of it? A home remedy or any medical cream that would erase the mark in a few days. Please help. Thanks, your time is appreciated. Good day! :)

Thanks for posting your query

It seems you have bruised your upper lip

It is matter of time only that it will go away, as it is self limiting

In case you want to hasten the process, you may apply ice and take an antiinflammatory tablet twice a day

Hope this helps
