Dermatologist 's  Response
Just apply a streoid based cream like mometasone two times in a day over affected area and avoid sun exposure. If your skin feels dry, use a good bland medicated moisturiser to soothe your skin. Its not a bruise and it will not scar. If in 4 or 5 days you dont get much response contact your dermatologist and next time be careful with your waxing session. Take care

Thanks for writing your query to us.
Waxing upperlip can be painful if you dont stretch the underneath skin . It could be bruise mark that has turned brown. Kindly continue to apply the same. It will fade out & than disappear in few days.
Dont worry.
Take care.
